Android 4.2 Jelly Bean announced with Photo Sphere camera and gesture typingAlongside the official launching of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 tablet, Google also took the wraps off its latest Android operating system which adds a new flavor to Jelly Bean. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean brings a new mode to its camera interface and a smarter keyboard interface that now supports gesture typing. Android 4.2 features a Photo Sphere camera that will allow users to capture pictures in different direction while combining them together to form “photo spheres.” Users can view photo spheres right on their phone, share them on Google+, and even add them to Google Maps.

On the other hand, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean also makes writing more easier, thanks to gesture typing. Now users can glide their fingers over the letters they want to type without having to worry about spaces. Google adds that Android’s dictionaries are now more accurate with better text-to-speech capabilities and offline support. Other nifty features of Android 4.2 include support for Miracast wireless displays, expandable notifications, the capability to add multiple users and switch between them instantly from the lockscreen, and a new Daydream feature that will enable devices to display useful information when idle or docked.
