In the spirit of continuing support for older devices, Motorola has now announced the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX. Instead of being relegated to a soak test, it’s now official and should start rolling out in phases. But what does this update include? First are the basics, like Google Now, Project Butter, voice search, and expandable notifications. Here is Motorola’s changelog:
- Google Now – We could all use a good planner to keep track of our busy lives. With Google Now you get notifications generated automatically and in real-time even before you ask. Now your DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX can deliver sports scores, stock updates, weather reports and traffic updates so you have all the information you want even before you’ve had your morning coffee.
- Expanded Notifications – You should be able to call or text someone back right from your missed call notification. With Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean you have the ability to do that and more. When you get a reminder about a meeting you can either tap once to snooze or even email participants to say you’re running late.
- Voice Search – Ask a question and get back the answer you’re looking for, ranging from “When is the next bus?” to “Where can I find a great Mexican restaurant?” You’ll either get a spoken response back or search results that answer your query.
But there is more that isn’t stated there. The soak test changelog shows a lot more information, so you should check it out here. It’s some great stuff.
Again, the update will be rolling out in phases so you might not gt it immediately. To check for updates, head to Settings and mash the check for updates button until you can’t feel your finger anymore. We hear it helps. Tell us if you get it!
