Android 4.2 – We already know new features

We are beginning to discover the features that the Android 4.2 will offer, whose name has not yet been confirmed – either continue to be called Jelly Bean or be the Key Lime Pie. LG and Google Nexus 4 prototypes came from developers, who tested the new features of this new Android version.

Quick Settings

Quick Settings in English means Quick Settings. This feature is not yet fully developed, but it is already known where it will be located: in a second notification bar. To access it, we first have to slide the notification bar down and then we have to repeat the same gesture. This second notification bar will not occupy the full screen, as you can see on the video:

With the double notification bar, we will be able to see notifications and settings simultaneously.

Gmail app new features

While it is likely that this Gmail app is not unique to Android 4.2, it is possible that this version of Android is the first to offer this new Gmail. Some new features incorporating the app have been leaked, and some of them can be really useful:

Pinch-to-zoom

With this new feature we will be able to extend our emails just as we do in the browser. This feature is useful for those who have difficulty reading email on their smartphone or for enlarging images.

Archive or delete gesture

With the new version of Gmail, you no longer have to touch the appropriate button to perform these functions. Just slide your finger to the side and a list of options appears where you can archive or delete an email.

Report Phising

Gmail will be more secure from now on. With the new application, we will be able to report cases of abusive emails.

Here is a video where you can see all the new features:

We are very curious to see how to be the most advanced Android version ever. And you? What do you think of the new features confirmed for Android 4.2?
