Android 4.2 changelog updated by Google
Google has updated the Android 4.2 changelog with all of the new features of Android 4.2 noted. Let's get right into it! As long as you've enabled the magnifier, you can now triple tap on the screen for full screen magnification. From the power menu, you can enable "TalkBack," an Android screenreader. Android 4.2 brings a new camera app and High Dynamic Range Mode (HDR) widens the exposure range allowing you to snap pictures with more detail. And new editing options on Android 4.2 allow for more customization using filters and borders. Photo Sphere lets you take 360 degree shots and you can access your camera from the lock screen.

The clock has been redesigned with both an analog and digital face, and believe it or not, but there actually is a share option for the new stopwatch. While it measures times, counts laps and can do split times, you can even share the results with non-believers. You can even have a countdown timer, run multiple timers and label them. The world clock lets you keep track of the time in different cities from the app itself or from the lock screen. And the new clock widget lets you choose from analog or digital style and allows you to resize it to include the time from other cities. Finally, there is full HDMI mirroring with support for  notifications and multi-display.

Coming next should be Key Lime Pie which we should see in May at Google I/O, quite possibly powering the Motorola X. If you want to see the complete changelog for Android 4.2, check on the sourcelink.
