Android 4.2.2 adds new sounds and notification toggles

Android 4.2.2 adds new sounds and notification toggles
Why just the other day, we told you that Android 4.2.2 was being sent out to the Google Nexus 10, Google Nexus 7 and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. While there has not yet been any changelist, we do have some information from those who have installed it on their tablet or phone. First of all, there is a new notification bar that shows you the time remaining and the percentage left of an in-progress app download. A change to Quick Settings lets you long press on the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi square to turn them into toggle switches. Now here is where it gets confusing. The Airplane Mode box is a single press toggle while some boxes do not change any settings.

Android 4.2.2 also brings a couple of new sounds, The two short bursts that tell you that your battery is low has been replaced while there is now a sound for wireless charging. Previously, the latter had no sound at all.

It should be interesting to see how the Android 4.2.2 update affects the next distribution data from Google. Also, we could see Android 4.0 drop more as some devices get updated to Android 4.1. The large chunk of Android users sporting a device powered by Gingerbread is only going to dissipate slowly as those owners start to upgrade once their 2-year contract expires. Those Android 2.3 phones will be replaced by Android 4.1 by the time the updates are in full swing, providing another reason to expect Ice Cream Sandwich to continue to melt.

If you have installed the Android 4.2.2 update on any of your devices, drop us a comment with some of the other changes that you might have noticed.

Funny, that was the same reasoning I had for staying away from 4.2.1, whereas that was the version you stuck with. For me, the BT problems were too much to bear, so I rooted, unlocked, and flashed 4.1.2 and stuck with that until yesterday, when I leapfrogged over 4.2.1 and went to the new build.
