Google Announces Android 4.3 Jelly Bean


Google today announced a minor bump in its Android platform to version 4.3 Jelly Bean. The core new features of Android 4.3 include the addition of restricted profiles to the multi-user tool, which lets users control what apps/services can be accessed by the other users. Android 4.3 adds support for Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, also called Bluetooth Smart. This will let Android 4.3 devices interact with new Bluetooth accessories, such as heart rate monitors. 

Android 4.3 also adds support for OpenGL ES 3.0 for improved graphics in games. The updated operating system offers new digital rights management APIs, which will eventually lead to the availability of more full HD 1080p video from third-party providers such as Netflix. Android 4.3 also adds a wide range of tools for developers, such as optimized location and sensor capabilities, improved access to notifications, more languages, user interface automation, and improved enterprise security tools, such as WPA-2 Wi-Fi networks. The Google Nexus 7, a new tablet from Google, will be the first device to ship with Android 4.3, but Google will deliver Android 4.3 to the Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus, and first-generation Nexus 7 devices.
