Before we go any further, let’s set expectations. It’s always nice to get a new update to our favourite O/S but there is nothing in here which is going to change your world.
With that in mind, let’s have a look.
Android 4.3 Updates
So what can you expect to see once the new version of Android is installed?
Here’s the change log:
Audio: For Nexus 7 (2013) owners! Virtual surround sound – enjoy movies from Google Play with surround sound.
Dial pad: For phone users, the dial pad now comes with an auto complete feature, start tapping out a number and Android will predict who you are calling!

Graphics: OpenGL ES 3.0 – Android now supports the latest version of the industry standard for high performance graphics. Wireless Display for Nexus 7 (2013 edition) and Nexus 10 – project from your tablet to a TV.

Roll on Android 5.0, that’s when the fun will really start. Hopefully we’ll see it this side of 2013!
