Nexus 7 & Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2 Update Available
Friday, November 16th, 2012
The Google Nexus 7 tablet has started receiving the Android 4.2 Update over the air bringing it to the most recent Android OS to date. Not only is this a big deal but it comes very soon after the sales started for the Nexus 10 that comes with Android 4.2 out of the box. Owning a Google branded device has proven to be the only way to guarantee quick and up to date OS updates.
What to expect added to your Nexus 7 after the update:
First is something that most people may not use but is a pretty cool feature just the same called Daydream, which is simply a kind of screensaver for your device. Next a more talked about feature is Photo Sphere for taking panoramic photos easily. Currently the Photo Sphere images can only be viewed in Google Plus or within Google Maps but the Android Community will likely create their own Photo Sphere viewers shortly.
If you haven’t already been notified by your device about the OTA (over the air) update you can always manually check for the update manually. To check for the Android 4.2 update on your Nexus 7 simply go to “Settings -> About Tablet -> System Updates”. If you still don’t see the update don’t worry you will just be patient, those that have already updated please let us know what you think.
