    Due to the hurricane Sandy, Google temporarily canceled the official Android OS release conference. Though the event was canceled, Google later on officially introduced its brand-new Android 4.2 OS and the next generation of Nexus smartphone, the LG Nexus 4. The Android 4.2 OS continues the Jelly Bean code, supporting for both tablets and smartphones. It retains most features of Android 4.1, but gets improved in some details. The small changes bring some fresh new functions. Check the following content to know what features of the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean have been improved:

    Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

    * Photo Sphere: A new way to capture panorama photos, Photo Sphere creates huge multi-shot scrollable images very similar to those found in Google Maps Street View.

    * Gesture Typing: Lots of comparisons being made to the third party Swype keyboard, and rightfully so. You can now type by tracing the words on the keyboard with a single finger.

    * Multiple User Support: A feature that many people have been asking for, Android 4.2 now supports multiple user logins on a single tablet device. Widgets, wallpapers and even game save states are all tied to the unique user logins.

    * Wireless Screen Sharing: Watch YouTube videos, movies and anything that’s on your screen to an HDTV with a wireless HDMI adapter.

    * Daydream: Setup your tablet to display photos, news and more while the device is idle or docked.

    * Expandable, Actionable Notifications: First introduced in Android 4.1, improved in Android 4.2. Interact with apps directly from the notification pane.

    * Google Now: A headline feature coming with the first release of Jelly Bean, Google Now is getting revamped with new kinds of cards and improved interactions.
