Android smartphone users, developers and interested people from all around the world have been waiting for the next version of Android operating system to be unveiled at the Google I/O event. The Google I/O event has already showed us some of the best stuff that Google was working on, but the event did not showcase the next version of Android operating system – Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
And if you are still waiting for Google to unveil Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, it means you have missed out on what Google really wanted to show you at the event. We know that there was no official announcement for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but Google has already unveiled the next version of Android without actually unveiling it.
The Google I/O event might not have focused on Android 4.3 as a whole, but there were a lot of individual improvements and new features that Google introduced for Android. These improvements and new features are nothing but Android 4.3 in disguise. Android is definitely one of the most popular mobile operating systems in the world, but there is a major problem that Google still has to tackle.
A majority of Android consumers are still using Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, and only a small percentage of consumers are actually on Android Jelly Bean. Many smartphone manufacturers and carrier companies have been trying to roll out the Jelly Bean updates for every device that supports the new version. In spite of all this, the Android world has been divided due to versions and update problems. If Google would officially announce yet another update, the Android world would be divided even further and would add to the problem instead of solving it.
Hence the company did come up with Android 4.3 so to say, but did not give it the official name, at least not for now. And if you want to check out all the new stuff that Google has brought to the Android platform, here is the list for you:
- Major update to Google Maps on Android
- WebGL-capable version of Google Chrome for Android
- New gaming API for Android + Google Play Games
- Loads of improvements to the Google Play Services APIs
- Improvements to Google Search
- Google Play Music All Access
