Android 4.3 Features

Well, remember those days where you would forget to switch of your Bluetooth and you would find that your phones charge had been drained? Well, one of the new features in Android 4.3 are Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth Smart) which allows easy access to Android devices without draining the battery. This works well with the new smart fitness and health monitors coming out for Android but also works well with the Android Smart Watch’s which connects to your mobile phone.

It looks like many mobile game developers will be happy with the latest implementation of  OpenGL as now we will have better rendering of graphics, which as Google showed on stage looks awesome.
 Here is the full list of features

·         Bluetooth Smart
·         OpenGL ES 3.0 support (for much improved graphics)
·          Restricted Profiles (an extension of multi-user support on tablets)
·         Background Wi-Fi location (uses Wi-Fi for providing location even when Wi-Fi is switched off)
·         Dial pad autocomplete
·         Google Play Games
·         Faster user-switching
·         Afrikaans, Amharic, Hindi, Swalihi, Zulu support (also Hebrew, Arabic RTL)
·         Easier text input
·         DRM APIs
Android 4.3 is now available for download on the Android website
