A key advantage of buying into the Nexus branded devices is gaining access to the latest Android releases as soon as they come available.
The latest such release is minor update 4.2.2 and you should see this arriving on your Nexus 7, 4 or 10 in the next day or so (if not already!).
As usual, I am the last to get these updates, and neither my Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 has received it yet.
What’s new in 4.2.2?
Don’t get too excited, this is a minor update and we shouldn’t expect any whizzy new features to be pushed out to our tablets.
But so far the following tweaks have been spotted:
- Small animation tweak, smoother roll-up of notification bar
- Battery low sound
- Wireless charging start audible notification
- adb security check
- Download progress bar now shows percentage complete and the time remaining
- Long press wi-fi and bluetooth in quick settings now toggles service on/off
- Faster gallery animation
There are also the usual “bug” and “performance” fixes but it’s hard to know what these are, I’m hoping that one day my Nexus 7 will lose it’s sluggish feel and will be reporting back if that happens!
Found any other enhancements? Let us know!
