Android 4.2.2 Update Brings Quick Settings Changes and More
The Android 4.2.2 update started rolling out on a handful of Nexus devices yesterday, touting “performance and stability” improvements as the only changes to expect. But when Android Police looked into Google’s change logs for the full list of tweaks, they found a few more handy upgrades.
First off, when you download something from the Google Play Store, you’ll now be able to see “time left to completion” for any file. Android Debug Bridge security also got a minor update, adding a whitelist for the benefit of oversuspicious users. WiFi and Bluetooth tiles can now be toggled via a long press in the notification Quick Settings. And finally, the 4.2.2 update makes your Nexus sound a little different: It now plays a tone when it charges wirelessly with less than 95% battery life left, and new low battery and cord-free charging sound alerts are on board.
Beyond these changes, Android Police says there are mixed reports on Bluetooth improvements—but the precise portion of that code hasn’t been found on the logs just yet. For the full rundown of these updates, hit the source link below.
