Android 4.2.2 update coming to Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices
Google will soon be issuing a small software update to its Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet in the form of Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Users on Reddit have already spotted the new software arriving on older Nexus devices, with one poster confirming the arrival of the update on his Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Reports have also confirmed that the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets are also slowly receiving the upgrade.
As the screenshot above shows, Android 4.2.2 is aimed at improving overall stability and performance for Nexus devices rather than adding new features.
The message also seems to advertise features of the Nexus 10, including multiple user profiles and the slide keyboard, which offers a Swype-style typing option.
At just 47.6MB, the update should be downloaded and installed within a matter of minutes, provided your device is connected to Wi-Fi.
We’re yet to see the update on our Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus, but we’ll be checking up on them over the next few days to see how the update changes things. We’re hoping it will fix our Nexus 4, which seems to occasionally lose all battery immediately for no apparent reason!
