Android 4.2.2 update now rolling out to select Nexus devices
Users across the inter webs have been reporting that Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is rolling out to GSM Galaxy Nexus phone, and Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets. The development was first noted by Android Police, which pointed to a Reddit thread where a user reported about his Galaxy Nexus receiving the 4.2.2 update and a Google+ post from another user reporting about receiving it on his Nexus 10 tablet. The update is also expected to hit Nexus 4 users. The report mentions that the update is being rolled out to select devices, carrying the JDQ39 build number.

We had earlier reported that the update is expected to roll out by the mid of February, so it doesn't really come as a surprise that Google has started seeding it out.

Google had confirmed that the issue would be resolved with the next release of the OS (4.2.2). The user, who claimed to have received the update on Reddit, said that Bluetooth streaming was smoother but not flawless. He also reported some minor minor cosmetic changes to the user interface. The user is based in the US state of Louisiana, on AT&T's network. The update might take more time to trickle out to all users.

The update, which as per some reports, is the last one for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, comes at a time when the rumour mill is abuzz about Google launching the next major Android update, Key Lime Pie, at its I/O developer conference, slated for May.
