Android 4.2.2 rolling out to GSM Galaxy Nexus and both Nexus tablets

Reports are rolling in from around the web that the Android 4.2.2 update is rolling out to the GSM Galaxy Nexus handset and both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets. The first reports sprang up on Reddit, and were followed closely by posts on Google+ and Twitter. Nothing official has been said about the update, but all signs point to the update popping up on your device soon.

According to users on Reddit who say they’ve received the update, the problem with Bluetooth audio streaming has been corrected somewhat, although it is being reported as still having occasional issues. One user reported that after updating, the Bluetooth still disconnects when the network changes from wifi to the mobile data network.

Per the screenshots Android Police has up, the update is build number JDQ39, and is 47.6MB. Users are receiving the update over the air, although many still haven’t had it arrive yet. Still, screenshots have cropped up showing the update on the GSM Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 7 tablet, and the Nexus 10 tablet, so users with one or more of those devices will likely see the update within the next day or so.

Not much else is known at the moment, since nothing official has been posted. According to the system update screen that users have seen, the 4.2.2 update is said to improve “performance and stability.” Users can set up their own accounts on the devices for customizability, and there’s Gesture Typing for typing words by sliding one’s finger across the keys.
