Android 4.2.2 update now rolling out for Nexus devices

Around one month ago we heard that new LG Nexus 4 smartphones may start shipping with Android 4.2.2 preinstalled. And here we are today, when Google has started pushing the 4.2.2 update to Nexus devices (specifically the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus).

As its number designation implies, this is not a big update. As such, don’t expect any feature additions (or not big ones, anyway). This update should be focused on cleaning out the remaining bugs in the 4.2 release, and we have previously heard that it’s going to fix some annoying Bluetooth-related problems too.

Android 4.2.2 rollout

It’s funny to note how, while not one Android phone or tablet maker has put out an update to Android 4.2 just yet (and hey, we’re only three months away from its release), Google isn’t stopping with its rapid update pace. In fact, most of the mobile world expects the next ‘big’ update (codenamed Key Lime Pie) to be unveiled in May during the company’s annual developer-focused conference. By that time, we’ll probably see a couple of non-Nexus devices get 4.2, but most will still linger in 4.0 or 4.1 land.

Sad, if you care about such things. Not sad if you care about such things and you own a Nexus (well, one that isn’t the Nexus One or Nexus S).

The update has been pretty elusive for the first hours of its rollout, so it wasn’t certain that you’d get it by manually checking. But things have progressed, so if you haven’t received the notification yet, perhaps it’s time to go to Settings > About and do your thing.

The build number is JDQ39, and the update comes in at around 50 MB on the Nexus 10 (the size may vary depending on device).
