Android 4.2.2 being pushed out to the GSM Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10!

If you have a Nexus device that was launched in 2012 (N4, N7, N10), be prepared to start shouting at the top of your lungs: There’s a software update waiting for you! Android 4.2.2 is rolling out now according to several users on the popular social news site Reddit. The update, build JDQ39, doesn’t have an official changelog yet, but people are reporting that Bluetooth audio is working a hell of a lot better than it was before. There are also some tweaks to several animations, but other than that … not much else. The update weighs in at roughly 50 MB, at least for the Nexus 10, so it’s a quick and easy download.

This is why it’s a good to own a Nexus. Many of the phones in people’s pockets right now are still on Android 4.1, which means 4.2.2 feels that much farther away. Speaking about far away, what about the next version of Android?

We know that Google is going to host their annual I/O event in May of this year. According to a leaked Qualcomm slide that instantly got pulled from the internet thanks to a pack of lawyers threatening legal action, Google is going to announce “Key Lime Pie” at said event. We think it’ll be called Android 5.0, but we’re not entirely sure about that yet. We also have no clue as to what features it’ll bring to the table.

Considering that we’re half way done with February, May can’t come soon enough.

  • Nice, cant wait to get the update

    I checked, and I still haven’t received an update on my Nexus 7. I even did the Google Services Framework Force Quit method.

    • Craig

      Calm down. In through the nose, out through the mouth.

      • LOL! What does that even mean? :)
        UPDATE: Oh, breathe… I knew that…

        • Money Loo

          It means take deep breaths…

  • Trent Hill

    The Galaxy Nexus (as shown in the “Model Number” field of the screenshot above) is NOT the Nexus 4, it is in fact the nexus 3.

    • Russ

      No, it’s the Galaxy Nexus, just like it shows.

  • WiFi nexus 7 still no update.

    Nobody has reported receiving an update for the nexus 4 yet(at least not in the reddit discussion), this article should be corrected.
