Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus Get Android 4.2.2 Update; Fixes Bluetooth Streaming

Reddit is abuzz with the news that big and latest Nexus devices are getting the Android 4.2.2 update. The software build JDQ39 is here and it’s hitting some pure Google Android devices like the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, plus the GSM Galaxy Nexus. So, let’s see what the fuss is about.


The update is rumored to solve problems with Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming, but other than that we have no clue on what it does. What we know is that it will rollout in phases, so don’t worry if you didn’t get it just yet. It appears that by mid February it will all be done. This might as well be the very last Android update before the big arrival of Key Lime Pie.

Android 4.2.1 came in November, so it’s been a while since we’ve been graced with an update on Android. 4.2.2 allows you to solve that issue with the skip or hiccup of a song when streaming audio over Bluetooth. However, people are reporting that while the streaming works better, it’s still not perfect. We’ll have to wait for an official changelog before really letting you know what’s happened
