The latest version of Google’s mobile operating system has been made available to the public.
The source code of Android 4.1 Jellybean was released as part of the Android Open Source Project, which aims to create a mutual development experience for the users and developers.
“We recommend that you create new clients, even if you’re working in the master branch,” said the lead engineer on the project. Jean-Baptise M. Queru. “It’ll make your clients smaller and faster to sync”.
The latest version features a more responsive user interface; better voice transcription; overhauled search; and a new feature called Google Now, which anticipates what a person may need to know at any given moment.
