If you’re lucky enough to own a Nexus device, chances are you’ll soon receive the OS update to Android 4.2.2. Although it isn’t a major update and includes a series of incremental changes, it fixes a lot of the bugs and problems that have plagued users since the Jellybean update. Those with non-Nexus devices might have to wait a while longer to get the update, and there’s no word on the date or time they can expect to receive it. Here are the main features of the Android 4.2.2 update

  • Download progress bar: When you download an app from the Google Play store, you’ll now see an accompanying progress bar that’ll tell you the time remaining in addition to the percentage downloaded.
  • Better quick settings: Users can now long press on the WiFi and Bluetooth icons to toggle them on and off.
  • Improved Gallery animation: All the Gallery effects and animation have been made faster to improve loading times.
  • New lock screen widget: You can now add an email widget to your device’s lock screen.

As previously mentioned, most of these additions are incremental, and the update is more to iron out the issues involving the Jellybean update. If you spot anymore major changes we’ve missed, please leave us a comment below!
