Android 4.2 Jellybean, The New Features

Yesterday Google officially announced the Nexus and Nexus 10 ahead of the Windows Phone 8 launch and those two devices were the first to run Android 4.2 Jellybean. In android 4.2 Google has added some new features as well as some updated ones. Google Now has been updated and now gives you more info before you even ask.
The biggest new feature in android 4.2 is the photo sphere camera which enables you to take 360 degree photos right from your phone or tablet. This feature is particularly similar to the Photosynth lens found in Windows Phone 8. 
The jellybean keyboard has been well know to have excellent autocorrecting features but in android 4.2 Google adds a new feature to the keyboard called gesture typing. It is basically a swype keyboard built right into the Jellybean keyboard. So now you can type faster with super precise words. 
The multiple user feature on android 4.2 tablets are particularly useful because now you can share your tablet with another person. This feature is similar to Windows multiple user so this feature is ready to take on windows 8 tablets. You can easily switch to different users from the lock screen. 
This new feature on android 4.2 called daydream now allows you to put screensavers when your device is either docked or idle. This feature reminds us a lot about the old windows where screensavers are always there. 
Finally the last new feature is in android 4.2 mirroring to your HDTV has never been easier with support for wireless displays now. All you have to do is connect a wireless display adapter to a HDMI enabled TV to enjoy the quick and easy screen mirroring. To find out more click here
