Are you satisfied with your current Android device? Or you think that your device needs some added features and a great update? If you think this is the case then you are literally in for a “treat” because this article intends to cover everything that you need to know about the Android Jelly Bean update.
Android updates have major dessert-themed code names following in alphabetical order, Android Jelly Bean Know as Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, KitKat, Lollipop, and Marshmallow. The information is applied to all Android phones such as Samsung, Google, Huawei, Xiaomi, etc. Did this make you hungry or craving for sugar? At least it did the job for me but hey all these features if not edible are at least a great treat for our Android devices.
What is the android jelly bean?
Android jelly bean was a new way to cancel out the problems with slow displays in some Android phones and tablets. New Nexus 7 allows you to move between apps faster because it had a quad-core processor in it and powered through things with twice the processing speed.
Project Butter was not the butter stick that we use to bake cookies and cakes on Christmas in fact it was an update which was designed and launched to make graphics look “smooth as butter.” There were a few changes in how graphics display. Opening and closing an app will get a zooming action in Android Jelly Bean where they got a pinching action in Ice Cream Sandwich, but the average user is just going to notice the speed and smoothness of the display. Part of this is accomplished by prioritizing processing power whenever you’re touching the screen and lowering it when you’re not.
Android Jelly Bean has indeed introduced the alert “shade” screen. Jelly Bean allows you to do things like responding to a calendar event reminder with a reply to all attendees that you’re running late or instantly call someone back when you miss a call. You can also expand your email alerts to see whether or not it’s an important message rather than just seeing an alert that you’ve got mail. Jelly Bean shade notifications initially only worked with Google apps.
Improved and Well Managed Photos
Instead of having to launch a separate gallery app from the camera app to sort through your photos, Jelly Bean adds easier editing and sorting capabilities. Now you shoot photos and can quickly switch between camera and filmstrip view to go through your footage.
Better Predict Keyboard
Android Jelly Bean also offers another cool feature which is that it can smartly add smarter text prediction that can learn from your typing habits and starts to predict the next word before you’ve even typed it. Isn’t this cool? Kind of just like working magic. This function is either pretty amazing or really weird evidence of Google mind reading skills. Nevertheless this is a helpful feature for when one types in a hurry to messages that need timely and instant responses,
Are Widgets Smarter or Not?
Widgets Resizable are a very nice feature, but it is still too easy to be told that there’s not enough room because the default size for your widget is too big. Android Jelly Bean has solved this problem by introducing widgets that automatically shrink down to fit the available space if they can, and when you drag around a widget, the other widgets move to get out of the way just like text re-flowing around graphics in a word processor. Hence with this tool you will not have to worry about about availability of space at all.
Enhanced Accessibility Features
Jelly Bean has also introduced better screen reading and gesture controls for accessibility. This will definitely help users get a better experience at using their Android device with enhanced efficiency and user-assistance.
Android Beam is basically the Google’s version of the Bump app. This involves two phones with enabled NFC connections which can then send each other apps, videos, websites and more by tapping phones together in fact share all kinds of documents. This is a very useful and indeed a cool feature, but it does require two NFC phones both of which must be running the Jelly Bean service.
