Along with a slew of new Nexus devices, Google has just announced Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jellybean. While it doesn’t get a new name of its one, it does get quite a few neat new features. Here’s a rundown. Gesture Typing: The new version of Android will include a new keyboard feature that allows for swipey-style typing, much like Swype, and the upcoming Flow for SwiftKey. Miracast Wireless Display Support: 4.2 will support Miracast, an AirPlay-like service. This means you’ll be able to stream Youtube videos, movies, TV, and anything that’s on your tablet screen to an HDTV if you have a wireless display adapter. Read the full story at Gizmodo.
