Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the latest version of the popular mobile platform. Simple, beautiful and easy to navigate, the new update features ingenious voice search capabilities and convenient Google enhancements, so finding the right information on the go has never been this easy, or this fast. With this intelligent personal assistant for your phone, you can search the web, get directions and transit schedules, translate a foreign phrase, find the latest sports scores, and more—just by asking a question. Google now can be launched from the lock screen shortcut or by long holding the Menu key from any screen.
It’s even easier to personalize your home screen. As you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room. When they’re too big, widgets re-size on their own. Interacting with your favorite apps and customizing your home screen has never been easier. Search the web with your voice and get quick answers on the go.
Powered by the Knowledge Graph, it speaks back to you and brings you a precise answer if it knows it and precisely ranked search results so you can find out more. Notifications are now expandable and collapsible with a pinch to show just the amount of information a user needs and have been enhanced so action can be taken without having to launch the app first—like sharing a screenshot directly from the notification.
