Android Jellybean features

Jellybean it is for the new Android OS, but it's not version 5.0 as we expected but version 4.1. What sweet treats does it have to offer, here's our pick of the best.

1. Customisable widgets

For those with OCD tendencies, Jellybean will auto-size your widget to fit on your homescreens but if that doesn't suit you can change its size too.

2. Voice interaction

Move over S Voice and Siri, Jellybean comes with an enhanced voice experience, you can now drill it when your browsing, reading, messaging and creating calendar events.

3.Project Butter

As the name suggests, this update is smooth. On the Nexus 7, scrolling, watching movies and multitasking is as smooth as your favourite spreadable.

4. Google Now

Google Now is essentially about giving specified info on a bespoke basis. It will inform you of a faster route if there’s traffic, or when the next bus is. The more you use it, the more it'll learn about you.

5.Notifications

A small but notable update, you can now view your notifications direct from the bar. Swipe to get rid and double finger swipe for more information.
