Last week we reported that Verizon was planning a Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Droid Bionic for release on April 15th. Right on schedule, the update has now started rolling out to Bionic owners.

The new update brings Bionic users all the Jelly Bean magic that those with newer handsets likely take for granted, including Google Now, enhanced notifications and massive speed improvements thanks to Project Butter. This newest upgrade also has several changes specific to the handset, such as improvements for Back Up Assistant Plus and Visual Voicemail.

You might want to wait until you are on a Wi-Fi connection before grabbing this one though, as it is pretty large at 98.72MB. As for when you can get your hands on the update? You might be lucky enough to have the update now, but don’t panic if it hasn’t arrived. In typical Verizon fashion, this will roll out in phases and it might take up to a few weeks to reach each and every Bionic owner.

To check for yourself if the update is available, head to Menu>Settings>About Phone>System. For those that have been lucky enough to get the update already, what do you think? Did you run into any snags or was it all smooth sailing?
