    Android 4.1 Jelly Beans

    Android version 4.1 finally stepped in during Google I/O even at San Francisco where Director of Product Management Hugo Barra detailed Jelly Bean’s. And guess what Google doesn’t forget to name its operating system in alphabetical order. As we already have Android versions in alphabetical order – C (Cupcake), D (Donut), E (Eclair), F (Froyo), G (Gingerbread), H (Honeycomb), (Ice Cream Sandwich) was current version and J (Jelly Bean) which is the latest version Android OS.

    Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0, and introduces a new Google search experience on Android. According to designer Bob Freking, designer of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean interface states that jelly bean has a number of valuable features which make him superior in comparison to Ice Cream Sandwich. He also said that this android version will also have support for netbooks and also dual boot functionality. On the other hand OS marks its debut by powering Google’s upcoming tablet called Nexus 7. Apart from them some other android Smartphone’s like Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Xoom and Nexus S will automatically get updated by mid of July.

    Ok lets we cut this chat here and come to our topic on which this whole article is based i.e Features of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Its in the news that that jelly Bean has more delicious features in comparison to Ice Cream Sandwich. Let we have looked at some of the best features of Android 4.1 which are listed below :

    1. Google Now

    Bravo Google !!

    3. Improvements to Android Beam


    This feature works on principle of wireless technology called near-field communications. Under this features user will be able to share photos by tapping two phones together. Previous version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich also supports this feature to some extent but at very limited scale. Presently Samsung galaxy i9300 S3 is only android Smartphone which has full support for this feature and expected for more soon.

    4. Faster, smoother, more responsive

    Apart from all above discussed features, Engineers make the whole user interface more faster, Smoother and more responsive in comparison to Ice Cream Sandwich. The company has improved the system frame rate and made it consistent at 60fps. Scrolling, paging and animations become smoother as experienced in Android 4.0.

    5. Expandable notifications

    Notifications play an important role in every Android Smartphone and with this android OS notification become more expendable. Now Android apps can now display larger, richer notifications to users that can be expanded and collapsed with a pinch. This feature includes notification support for photos and content with more multiple actions.

    6. Amazing Keyboard


    Now with Jelly Bean you get an adaptive keyboard which lets you get started just by typing a word or two, and then based on what you’ve said, Android makes a few educated guesses on what your next word will be and offers them up as options before you’ve even started typing the next few words.

    7. Jelly Bean camera app

    This is amazing features of this Jelly Bean which will provide a real experience of capturing snapshots. By using this camera app users will able to swipe for a quick preview of the last photo taken. Also you can swipe to see all photos and pinch to shrink the gallery into a film strip UI .Now this feature will surely help users navigate to the right image quickly.

    Bravo Google !!

    8. Jelly Bean is quick and saves battery

    According to Engineer jelly bean is Quick and battery saver. Using Touch Input Boost, Android 4.1 boosts the CPU so that loading times are faster, and therefore uses less battery power.

    9. Google Play Apps Updates

    According to the latest update Google Play apps updates going to be smarter on the device to jelly bean. In this instead of download and installing whole file app only install changes element of app which make them 66% smaller.

    Cool really like that feature : -)

    10. Cool HomeScreen Feature

    Home Screen is sole of every Smartphone and if we ignore homescreen it would be unfair but thankfully now apps also move around when resizing widgets.

    11.Include Arabic font, and 18 new languages

    This might be great news for users who still didn’t get language support. With this update Android OS includes Arabic font, and 18 new languages Persian, Hindi and Thai under his hood. Gesture support will surely help to improve blind users in using Smartphone with jelly bean 4.1 .

    12. Resizable app widgets

    Android 4.1 introduces improved App Widgets that can automatically resize, based on where the user drops them on the home screen, the size to which the user expands them, and the amount of room available on the home screen.

    13. Google Cloud Messaging for Android

    Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) is a service that lets developers send short message data to their users on Android devices, without needing a proprietary sync solution. This feature will handle the details of queuing messages and delivering them efficiently to the targeted Android devices. Using this service can send up to 4K of data.

    So these are best and delicious features of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but not the full features and if you need a list of full features then you might love to Developer. Android Page for Jelly Bean

    Now it’s your turn to answer my some questions whether you like all these features of Jelly Bean or Not ? If yes then which are they ? Is Google now is a great Google Representative for Siri ?

    Me wants JB on my Razr! I really want to be able to use "Google Now".

    I'm not eligible for an upgrade until Summer 2013, so I'll just wait for "Key Lime Pie" or whatever is out at that time.

    Nice list, but I count just 12 things. #10 and #12 appear to be the same thing to me unless someone wants to clarify #10.

    Any new useful feature added to the tablet is great. It'll be interesting if any of them becomes the absolute must-have feature for all devices in the future. I put WiFi/Internet access down as one of those things. I remember the Zune HD, a great device with WiFi, but very limited uses for it. Even when they eventually added an email app it was crippled/limited to the account types it could access.
