After staying on the developers table for nine whole months, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean would be seeing the light of the day through Google Nexus 7 tablet.
It might not seem to be a complete makeover for the Android operating system, but it definitely brings with it several things which had been absent for the previous versions. This article would be taking up some of the features which are going to change the very basic of Android Development through the following lines.
6 Mind Boggling Features to look forward to in Android 4.3
The changes which are to be expected in the new Android version might be not much, but it has been predicted to be extremely effective in the areas of privacy, notification, gaming and language add-ons.
1) Introducing Restricted Profiles
The inclusion of the multiuser profile had been a common thing in the last iteration of the Jelly bean version. This time Google is introducing restrictive profile to enhance the functionality of the user experience. If the device is being handled by multiple users, profile can be set for each of users for the protection of the privacy.
Now you won’t have to worry about your children browsing through unwanted sites and apps. If you don’t want to play games on your device or spend a major share of the study time on Facebook, you can always disable the apps through the restrictive profiles.
2) Boosting Gaming graphics through OpenGL ES 3.0
This feature especially meant for seasoned gamers and Android Developers who specialises in the area of gaming. This feature is here to blow the mind of the game junkies who prefers high quality game graphics for both their games and videos.
The drawback to this feature is that the users have to have hi-end graphical hardware to back them up. This feature is supported by Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices. This is only the beginning for hardcore gaming for Android devices.
3) Adaptation of DRM for High Quality Content Streaming
With the better Digital Rights Management or DRM feature integrated in the Android 4.3, the user would stream high-quality content through media apps. This particular wireless display feature is supported by some of the phones such as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The user would have the ability to stream anything on the Android device screen to a HDTV or a Hi-end television.
4) Enhanced Notification Access
Android has already made a name for the delivery of the notification. With the Android version 4.3, the access to notification would be getting a complete makeover. The user would be relay notifications to and fro from the primary and the connected devices including smart watches and fitness bands.
The user would be able to have an accumulation of the notification at one single place and that would be the tab in the hands of the user.
5) Bringing up the best in Bluetooth Supports
Android 4.3 would be introducing Bluetooth Smart Ready support for the control of low energy Bluetooth devices such as heart-rate monitors, pedometers, as well as blood pressure monitors and the likes of the same. The synchronisation of the two devices won’t be affecting battery usage at a much higher level.
This feature was never present in the Android inventory. But introduction to this feature would give way, Android’s own series of wearable tech. The Bluetooth for Android supports the AVRCP standards, which is used for controlling heavy electronics such as Smart TV as well as displaying Metadata from music tracks.
