Google announced Android 4.3 Jelly Bean alongside the second-generation Nexus 7 at a press event held earlier this morning. The new OS will ship with the Nexus 7 tablet on July 30th, and it will begin rolling out to the first-generation Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus today. As expected, Android 4.3 is only a slight upgrade to the Google operating system. Here are the new features Google announced at the press event.
Multi-User with Restricted Profile
This allows users to lock down a profile. This feature is perfect for parents, who can now monitor what apps their kids are downloading and block in-app purchases.
1080P HD Movies
Neftflix now supports 1080P HD streaming to Android 4.3 devices.
Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth 4.0
The Nexus 7 can now used with Bluetooth devices like the Runtastic heart-rate monitor Google previewed at the event. This opens the door for many more Nexus 7 accessories to be made in the future.
