Google announced the launched of Android 4.3, the latest update of the company’s Jelly Bean mobile operating system.

Android 4.3 introduces restricted profiles, which let users limit access to apps and content.

“For example, restricted profiles enable parental controls, so certain family members are prevented from accessing mature content,” Google explained.

Android 4.3 also supports Bluetooth Smart technology, opening the door to mobile apps that connect to new devices like fitness sensors.

Android 4.3 is rolling out to Nexus devices starting immediately (24 July 2013).
