Motorola DROID 4 receives Android 4.1 today
If you own Motorola DROID 4 and you have hoped to get Jelly Bean, your prayers have been heard! Just a little more patience and you will get Android 4.1 for your device – over-the-air, of course. It may take some time for this OTA update to hit your phone, so if you are too impatient, you can try and launch it manually by going to the Settings Menu and there choose About Phone – System Updates – Download. If there’s no update yet, you will have to wait some time. And, bear in mind that it is 356MB in size, so it’s better not to download it over your paid 3G.
So, from today onwards, the users of Motorola DROID 4 will be enjoying the Project Butter for perfectly smooth transition and will try Google Now, which will provide you with all the necessary information about the traffic, weather, sports news, the stock and much more. Before you leave for work, just check Google Now and you will find out what’s the traffic from your house to your office.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will also update the notification screen and will provide you with the opportunity to return calls, reply to emails and view pictures and video straight from each notification. Other things that come with the update are the Voice Search, which will not only search the web controlled with voice commands, but will also speak back when it finds something, the Smart Keyboard, which is more predictive than ever and the voice typing, which can also be used offline now. And even more – the voice and data connectivity are also improved.
This update will require about an hour to be installed and about 20 minutes after the installation you won’t be able to use your Motorola DROID 4 for making and receiving phone calls. Be sure to fully charge your phones battery before starting the update process. The bad news is that this may be the last update for this device, as it was released with Android 2.3 and got a few major updates since then.
