Today Google made Android 4.1 Jelly Bean official for the world to see! Jelly Bean includes tons of new features to make the Android OS as smooth as butter. That brings me to “Project Butter,” is set in place to help improve Android’s overall performance. This enhancement includes setting the frame rate to a consistent 60 frames per second, this also includes a power-saving setting that will slow down the devices CPU to a lower frequency and then increase it when the screen is touched.
Jelly Bean brings Google’s Speech Recognizer in Android an lets the user voice type with or without a data connection. An update to the Android camera application lets the user use swipe based gestures to scan through and delete photos taken. You will now be able to call or send a message right from your notification screen!
A new application called Google Now will use search history and location history to find information the user may need at what times. This includes things like being able to measure commutes with current traffic information. It will also notify you when you have to leave a specific time to get to your next meeting. Jelly Bean will now include mobile app encryption meaning that all applications ordered from Play will be devices specific. No more pirated applications! I am sure the devs will be very happy!! Jelly Bean will land on the Google Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Xoom by mid-July
