Android 4.3 release date, news and features

We're all waiting for the next big iteration of Android to hit us and while we already know it's going to be dubbed Key Lime Pie, it turns out Google isn't quite finished with Jelly Bean as Android 4.3 the next update on the horizon. Google has finally announced the changes this new operating system will bring, so stay tuned to see all the information on the launch of Android 4.3 and the new Nexus 7, as well as any other fancy news. Here's a round-up of the new features of Android 4.3: Multi-user ability was added to 4.2, but with the new version you can now customise things on a user level, allowing parental controls and a lock on apps if needed through 'personal spaces'. Apps have to be optimised to work in this way, but parental control will be much more stringent with the new version of Jelly Bean. Bluetooth smart technology (Bluetooth low energy as it's also known) is now supported, allowing apps to connect to the low-power sensors that are all the rage in fitness technology these days. Open GL ES 3.0 is supported in Android 4.3, which means a massive update in the graphic ability in any device using the platform. This means detail and speed in games is now massively enhanced, and will see a greater level of photorealism and effects. DRM APIs will also make it easier for media companies to show off their content to users - for instance, Android 4.3 will allow 1080p streaming of Netflix content on the go, with more apps to follow. Other features include background Wi-FI locations (meaning the connectivity can be used for location even when turned off) and a new and updated keyboard - stay tuned for more updates on that. Android 4.3 release date Android 4.3 is available from today if you're the proud owner of a Nexus 7, and it will also be coming 'soon' on the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Google versions. Many believed that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean would make an appearance at the search giant's annual IO conference which took place in May, but sadly no such announcement was made. Apparently Android 4.3 was at the Google IO show however, with one reporter claiming he was able to get hands on with the software on a white Nexus 4 - although his prediction that 4.3 Jelly Bean would arrive on June 10 has turned out to be false. Android 4.3 devices Google is going to treat its own-brand devices to the Android 4.3 update first, with the likes of the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus all in line for the new software early doors, as well as the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Editions 'soon'. HTC has told TechRadar "We're reviewing Android 4.3 to see how this update fits into our plans. We hope to have more info for you soon." This should be sooner rather than later as we've already spotted versions of the phone running Android 4.3 in the wild - and word is Samsung's Galaxy S3 and Note 2 will be going straight to the newer version of the Google platform.
