Google unveiled Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Google has officially announced Android 4.3 with same name, Jelly Bean. Android 4.3 is just a minor upgrade so it brings minor improvements and refines the user experience, rather than delivering game-changing features. 

Multi-user support was introduced in 4.2 and it's updated in 4.3 with the new restricted profiles. A restricted profile can limit what content and apps can be used – even limit in-app stuff like what levels of a game can be played.

Besides that, Hangouts is now officially replaces Talk and Keep is available out of box. The Drive, Chrome and Maps applications have been revamped too.

The notifications has also changed, you can now view your notifications history. Also, third party apps have access to notifications, which will help smart watches and apps that sync notifications across devices.

Android 4.3 also brought Bluetooth 4.0 with Low Energy mode, which is low power usage and longer range for low-bandwidth accessories like those fitness tracking gadgets. Wi-Fi can be kept on at all times to determine your position, even when you toggle it off.

A new hardware-based encryption for DRM has been added so content providers will be more willing to stream high-quality content. A new Netflix app is among the first to make use of this and streams 1080p video (it's now available in the Play Store).

The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update will be available on Nexus devices soon - Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. We do not know when will it available in Malaysia as the update has started roll out today.
