ASUS Transformer AiO updated to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, support for multiple accounts in tow
ASUS’s Transformer AiO, the company’s all-in-one PC/tablet hybrid that dual-boots Windows 8 and Android, is a strange beast. To call the 18.4-inch device unwieldy is a massive understatement.
Much to ASUS’s credit, though, the concept behind the AiO is interesting: instantaneous switching between Windows and Android with the touch of a button. That kind of flexibility is certainly nice to have, and even more so now that ASUS seems dedicated to improving the usability of the device through software enhancements, most recently with the upgrade to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
The next-to-latest version of Android brings welcome improvements to the Transformer AiO, which shipped with Android 4.1 onboard. In addition to Gesture Typing, Daydream, notification toggles, and multiple lockscreens with widgets, the 4.2.1 update includes support for multiple user accounts, a feature that seems right at home on the AiO.
If you’re the lucky owner of a Transformer AiO, you should receive a notification to download the update soon. If you’d like to speed up the process, check for the new software manually be navigating to Settings > About tablet > System updates.
