If you own the Droid Razr HD or the Droid Razr Maxx HD from Verizon, today is your lucky day. Motorola has announced today that they are pushing the Android 4.1 update to both devices. Motorola highlighted some of the additions in the update on their blog:
- Google Now – Shouldn’t your phone be able to anticipate what you’ll need throughout your day? With Google Now, you get answers before you even have to ask. Real-time notifications let you know whether you should pack an umbrella for later in the day or if you need to grab the train to avoid the accident that’s backing up I-495. Plus, you’ll receive the score of your favorite team’s game from last night. Though Google Now can’t make your morning coffee, it will provide you the convenience you want to keep you one step ahead.
- Voice Search – Want a voice-search experience that doesn’t only work in TV ads? Google Voice Search on Androidâ„¢ 4.1 lets you speak your questions directly into your phone. Run a quick search that will give you everything from great Italian restaurants on the Lower East Side to the next train leaving from Clark and Lake. And if you want to test Google Voice Search’s foreign language skills, go ahead. It currently supports 34 languages from around the globe.
- Richer Notifications – It’s always good to see a missed call or new email notification, but wouldn’t you rather just take action? With Androidâ„¢ 4.1, now you can. You just received a meeting reminder and know your call is running long. No problem, you can tap once to email the team that you’ll be there in a few minutes. Missed calls can be returned with a single tap, all right from the notification shade.
So not really anything new to the update that we didn’t already expect. Of course there are plenty of bug fixes in tow in this update as well. This little, okay big, update will put your Razr HD in line with the likes of the Droid DNA and the Note 2 also available on Verizon. You can grab your Android 4.1 update by going to Settings, tapping About Phone, then Check for updates.
Once you get the update, let us know in the comments how you’re liking Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean.
