    OTA downloads being rolled out now

    According to a post on the Sprint community site, the Nexus S 4G and Galaxy Nexus will soon receive the Android 4.1, Jelly Bean with the over-the-air update being rolled out to customers now.

    When your Nexus S 4G or Galaxy Nexus is eligible for the update, it will automatically download. Once the download is complete, you will be prompted to install the update. Installation will take a few minutes, and your device will be disabled during the installation process. It will be ready to use when the process is complete.


    There’s a new Google Search experience on Nexus S 4G and Galaxy Nexus with a new user interface and faster, 'more natural' Voice Search. You can type your query or simply ask Google a question. Google can speak back to you, delivering an answer powered by the Knowledge Graph, if it knows one, in addition to a list of search results.

    Additionally, Jelly Bean provides the following enhancements to Nexus S 4G and Galaxy Nexus:

    • Google Now, which gets you just the right information at just the right time, like how much traffic to expect before you leave for work or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform
    • Expandable, actionable notifications allowing you to take action directly from the notifications shade
    • Android Beam™ now lets you send photos and more
    • Widgets work like magic: as you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room; when they're too big, widgets resize on their own

    With Jelly Bean, Nexus S 4G and Galaxy Nexus join the growing list of phones with added accessibility features for those with disabilities. It allows the blind to use “Gesture Mode” to reliably navigate the UI using touch and swipe gestures in combination with speech output. It also adds accessibility plugin support for external Braille input and output devices using Bluetooth and USB.
