Alright, now it’s getting good. After a few days of Google uploading Nexus 7 tutorials on their YouTube channel detailing even the most mundane tasks, we’re now getting to Jelly Bean features. More like a commercial than an actual tutorial, the creepy dead-hand is back and in their latest video, Google highlights a few features found on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that separate it from some of Google’s previous desserts. There was 3 main features shown off this time around: face unlock with blink security, Google now, Google Play widgets and enhanced notifications. Nothing new for us veterans, but once again, you can forward this video to some of your less tech savvy friends and family to help them in their Jelly Bean journey.
