Google is Rumoured to Release Android 4.2.2 as early as this month
The new Android OS update known as Key Lime Pie is believed to be unveiled at its annual developers conference in May. But before the company releases Android 5.0, reports claim that Google is planning to release an Android 4.2.2 update as early as this month.
The International Business Times reported that Google employees are already testing the operating system on Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 devices. This upcoming update release is supposed to include a few security enhancements, bug fixes such as Bluetooth streaming issue on Google Nexus 7 among many other such issues.
Google has released Android 4.2.1 last November and since then rumors keep flying about an update to fix some nasty bugs in the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Last year in Google's annual I/O developers conference the company had launched the new Android 4.2.1 but it took many Android users to adopt to new mobile operating system a few good months. With this update Google is hoping to get some key issues fixed for users, which will certainly increase the adoption rate right before the giant decides to release the mega OS Android 5.0 code named Key Lime Pie, rumored to be unveiled around March and June.
Google hasn't given a word about what features exactly to be expected from the Android 4.2.2 update but expectations are that one of the main fixes seems to be of the Bluetooth streaming issue on Nexus 7 - caused the device to shutter. Google representatives had said before that the issue will be fixed in the next release, which is most likely this Android 4.2.2 update.
No dates have been given out in public about the release of this update but Google employees were given access to 4.2.2 recently to start limited testing last week. One source claimed it could well be rolled out within a couple of weeks. Our say? The next Android 4.2.2 which is a small update before the major Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie update may launch as soon as mid February and mid March.
