Android 4.3, Jelly Bean

Android 4.3, an even sweeter Jelly Bean, is available now on Nexus phones and tablets.

Restricted profiles limit access to apps and content, at home with your family and at work. Bluetooth Smart support makes Android ready for a whole new class of mobile apps that connect to fitness sensors. Games look great thanks to the 3D realistic, high performance graphics powered by OpenGL ES 3.0.

And there’s a lot more new in this release:

Virtual surround sound – enjoy movies from Google Play with surround sound on Nexus 7 (2013 edition) and other Nexus devices.

Dial pad

Autocomplete – just start touching numbers or letters and the dial pad will suggest phone numbers or names. To turn on this feature, open your phone app settings and enable “Dial pad autocomplete.”


OpenGL ES 3.0 – Android now supports the latest version of the industry standard for high performance graphics.
Wireless Display for Nexus 7 (2013 edition) and Nexus 10 – project from your tablet to a TV.
