People who have the original Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX will be thrilled to know that Motorola is currently rolling out the updates to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
This is a fairly major update as it removes a ton of bloatware (replaced by stock apps), adds Google Now with an enhanced Google Voice Search, expanded notifications in the status bar, an improved image gallery, better camera reaction time, an improved smart keyboard, and a host of other tweaks for a smoother experience overall.
In addition to major changes, there are also some less noticeable ones such as new fonts, colors, and animations, replacing the stock internet browser with Chrome, a variety of bug fixes, and improved contact syncing. The bloatware apps that were removed are :
– Social Location
– Alarm/Timer (replaced by Google Clock)
– Verizon Video On Demand
– My Gallery widget
– My Motocast widget
– My Music widget
– Picture slideshow widget
– Sticky note widget
– Weather and World Clock widgets
From Motorola’s announcement:
Google Now – We could all use a good planner to keep track of our busy lives. With Google Now you get notifications generated automatically and in real-time even before you ask. Now your DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX can deliver sports scores, stock updates, weather reports and traffic updates so you have all the information you want even before you’ve had your morning coffee.
Expanded Notifications – You should be able to call or text someone back right from your missed call notification. With Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean you have the ability to do that and more. When you get a reminder about a meeting you can either tap once to snooze or even email participants to say you’re running late.
Voice Search – Ask a question and get back the answer you’re looking for, ranging from “When is the next bus?” to “Where can I find a great Mexican restaurant?” You’ll either get a spoken response back or search results that answer your query.
Better start mashing that System Updates button!
