Android JellyBean Logo

Google unveiled Android 4.1 Jelly Bean a month ago, and Google has not only  published the  source code of the operating system, but also rolls out the official update of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Galaxy Nexus. My colleague had represented “Jelly Bean” version of Android on his  Smartphone and shared his favorite 5 Best Android 4.1 Jelly Bean features , which, of course, will be thrilled and our readers.

Notification Bar

Jelly Bean Notification Bar

As can be seen in the above screenshot, the notification bar has significant changes. Now notice appear in such a way that you get almost all the necessary information without even opening the message itself. When you press and hold the notice it shows “information about the application”, where you can choose the option , whether you want to be notified in the future or not. Tired of ads from the application? With this new feature you can forget about annoying messages without even the specific blocker of advertising.


Google Voice – Voice Search

Forget about Siri, S-Voice and Vlingo! Android 4.1 Jelly Bean user can now search by a voice, the application has named as Google Voice. Although it has yet to learn the Indian language, but Jelly Bean Assistant is currently fully supported by the traditional English language. Want to send a message? Just tell. To listen Linkin Park? Just tell. The meaning of life, weather, location of wintering crabs? Google Voice to help you. Just ask and you tend to get a clear answer, sounded quite neutral human voice. This is not all that he knows and it grabs information with your voice search term from Google. A complete list of commands you can find here .


Google Now


Google Now, which was introduced in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We have already discussed it in detail. We note only that the assistant learns your interests and habits (with your permission) and helps you in performing everyday tasks. He will recall, when it is best to leave the house in time to catch a meeting, tell the weather forecast and even recommends the sights in an unfamiliar city or country. Google Now needs lots of improvement, but this function will be a huge potential in the future it may become an assistant, who knows what and when you need it.


The speed and smoothness

One of the most important, I think the changes – is to improve the speed and smoothness of the OS. In the new version you will notice some major improvements in user interface, which are expressed in a more rapid and smooth transition from screen to screen and scrolling.


Offline Voice Typing

The last feature, which I certainly want to tell you – is voice input i.e Offline Voice Typing. Google engineers were able to establish a system of voice recognition locally on the mobile device, so that voice commands can now be works even with no connection to the Internet.



One can argue long about the differences between the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean, but these are the 5 Best Android 4.1 Jelly Bean features I observed. In the coming months, many of our readers will be able to see for themselves, how Android’s latest version is faster and more convenient. Do not forget to tell us what you think about the new version and what new features have impressed you the most? We are eagerly waiting for our readers reply and comments.
