Jelly-Bean-Logo
Last Updated: August 10th, 2012

The new version of Android is out, it's real, and yours truly has a (mostly) working copy. That can only mean one thing: Getting To Know Android is back!

The title may not rhyme anymore, but it's still home to the most in-depth look at the next version of Android on the internet. That's right, the world's most OCD changelog is here to point out every polished pixel of Android 4.1: Jelly Bean.

The usual GTKA caveats apply: This is beta code (the Jelly Bean preview from I/O, in fact) and subject to change. Plus I've got it running on a phone it isn't even meant to run on, so we won't be too hard on it. The good news is we aren't messing around with emulators this time. These are real screenshots from a real phone.

Slide Unlock

First things first: We'll start with the lock screen. All the pictures will be in a "before and after" style, so for now it's Ice Cream Sandwich on top, Jelly Bean on the bottom:

wm_2012-06-29 10.59.292012-06-28 17.32.43wm_2012-06-28 19.41.06wm_2012-06-28 17.33.13wm_2012-06-28 17.09.52wm_2012-06-28 17.09.41wm_2012-06-28 17.43.44wm_2012-06-28 17.09.59

The "ripple" effect is gone from the lock screen. Jelly Bean replaces it with a dotted concentric circle effect that looks quite nice. When you first turn the screen on, the dots "light up" in an outward ripple from the lock circle, like a raindrop hitting a puddle. Tapping anywhere on the screen will cause the dots to ripple outward again. It's a cool little "Hey, put your finger here," effect.

Once you do put your finger there, you'll see the new touch effect. Instead of ICS's hollow ring, your finger "lights up" the static dot pattern as you move around.

They also tweaked the "lock on" effect. When you drag over to an icon you now get an inverted icon with a white circle, and an awesome glow effect (check out the bigger picture).

You also get a new item on the lock ring, a Google logo! You can drag the your finger over it to launch it just like the other icons, it will jump you straight into Google Now, Google's new search/voice assistant/Miss Cleo interface. (More on that in a later episode).

Software Buttons (and whatever else we run into)

wm_2012-06-28-17.29.572wm_2012-06-28 16.41.31

The software buttons got lots of little tweaks. First, we see evidence of our first Jelly Bean design motif (right): Less blue, more gray. Actually "gray" isn't really the right word for it, it's kind of a frosty, transparent white. The search bar gets the frosty white treatment and the button touch effect switches from blue to gray to match. Blue isn't gone totally, but, as we jump around in this series, you'll notice there is significantly less blue in JB than there used to be.

The microphone symbol got a refresh. I'm not too sure about this one, the old icon was unmistakably "a microphone." Now though, things are a little more ambiguous. I don't really have "microphone" jump out at me when I look at that.

wm_2012-06-28 16.41.40wm_2012-06-28 16.41.45wm_2012-06-29 13.28.30

The software buttons have learned a new trick! Swiping up from anywhere on the button bar will open Google Now. A long press will bring up a ring that works exactly like the lock screen ring, with the same dotted circle effect. Dragging up to the "Google" logo will open Google Now, and the best part is that this is accessible from anywhere you can use the buttons.

I'll take this as Google's apology to people (namely me) that complained about the removable of easily accessible voice actions when they killed the hardware search button. Apology accepted, but this still doesn't immediately start listening for voice commands, so voice actions are still harder than they used to be.

Oh, and a quick note to any ROM developers out there: I would like the option to stick more apps on this ring. Google's got the center, but how cool would left and right ring shortcuts be? Shortcuts that are accessible from anywhere...

Also - fun fact: The buttons are now multi touch aware (right picture). I have no idea why you'd want that, but it's there now.

_0001_Layer-0wm_2012-06-29-19.50

We are also now finally taking advantage of a benefit of software buttons and better communicating what the back button will do. It's a shame this is the only instance, but hey, progress is always good. Here the JB back button (right) is telling us that hitting it won't move us anywhere, it will just close the keyboard. ICS (left) would just show a normal back button.

Next, I would like the back button to have a visual distinction when it will close an app (vs. just going Back within that app), because currently, it's impossible to tell what the heck Back will do at any given moment. Will it go back in this app? Will it go back to the app I just jumped here from? Will it close this app entirely? I never know. No one does. You've got the ability to communicate with software buttons, use it.

We might as well talk about the keyboard design too, since it's here. The microphone key is sporting the fresh, new symbol we saw on the search widget, and the spacebar has betrayed the function keys and joined its alphabetical brethren on the light-gray side (the spacebar is grey now). That just makes more sense.

Update - They Broke The Menu Button Glow!

Turns out I'm not the only one at AP with a preference for pretty pixels: Our fearless leader, Artem, pointed out to me that the Jelly Bean Menu glow really gets his OCD senses tingling. Check it out:

2012-07-01 17.25.23

Hmm, yeah, ok, that doesn't seem right. The Menu glow shouldn't be all up in the Recent button's personal space like that. What did it look like in Ice Cream Sandwich?

Screenshot_2012-07-01-17-12-00

Well, would you look at that? They broke the menu button glow. In Jelly Bean they just apply the same glow to Menu that the full-sized buttons use, despite it being about half the size of the other buttons.  This looks so wrong. ICS handled this elegantly by using a smaller glow for the smaller button.

Fix it Google... Please?

Icons

icons

Some icons have grown a little since we last saw them. People got its rolodex cards fanned out a little more and as a result is noticeably taller; Gmail is whiter and a pixel or two taller; and Search got a rename to "Google" and has a whole new icon with a bit of a 3D look to it.

The Calendar icon is incredibly ugly now, mostly because it is no longer really calendar-shaped (most calendars are rectangles, not squares, right?) and because the green header is now huge and no longer symmetrical with the calendar days. I get that they wanted to make it taller, but there must have been a better way. The bottom 3d block on February 27th (that's right, February) used hang over the edge of the icon by a pixel, it got chopped off.

News & Weather got a size and resolution bump, you can even read the paper now if you really squint: "New study: News headlines always getting better!" This, the "Lorem Lauren Ipsum" on the People card, and the calendar displaying February will be good if anyone wants to start up an Android trivia game.

At first glance it looks like they were trying to get a little more uniformity going for the icon heights. Consistency! That's good to see.

consistancy

Don't get your consistency hopes up too much though, the Android Team still doesn't have a detailed oriented guy running around fixing things like this (résumé available upon request). All these icons were redesigned by the Android Team, but not to a standard height (or width, but one thing at a time). I think they just eyeballed them, and the person eyeballing them sucks at eyeballing things. If only there were guidelines for things like this.

2012-06-29-21.172012-06-29-16.22

While I'm complaining about icons, I should mention that they still didn't get rid of the top-heavy "speech bubble" icons for Talk and Messaging (and Voice). While this is technically correct (Talk and Play Store are the same size), it doesn't pass the eyeball test. The speech bubbles look way out of scale and too tall when compared to a bottom heavy icon like the Play Store. This looks like someone screwed up, and that's what's important.

And no, it's not your imagination, Talk and Messaging still aren't the same height, (Again, I'm for hire) even though they are the exact same shape. Bonus fail points for that one, guys.

Of course, the best way to fix this is to not have Talk and Messaging exist anymore, and merge Talk, Voice, Messaging, G+ Messenger, and G+ Hangouts. Do that. No one wants 5 chat programs.

That's it for now. Be sure to tune in next time! We'll be taking at look at the fancy new notifications.

Ron loves everything related to technology, design, and Google. He always wants to talk about "the big picture" and what's next for Android, and he's not afraid to get knee-deep in an APK for some details. Expect a good eye for detail, lots of research, and some lamenting about how something isn't designed well enough.
  • Jrbourque898

    Google now does start listening, you just have to say Google first

    • Ron Amadeo

      Right, but you used to be able to just hold down the search button and start talking. There is an extra step now.

      Now you have to say "Google," wait for initialization, and then you can say a command. The GSIII is much better at this, you can say "Hi galaxy call home" and it will start up AND handle your attached command. You can't attach commands to the "Google" start up phrase.

      • PhilNelwyn

        Yes, indeed.
        And that's even worse, I tried it further and you can't confirm actions by voice.

    • nsauce7

      I like JBs new voice search now. Most times I don't want voice search when I use it so to have it activated automatically and having to stop it was more of a hassle. Now, if I wish to voice search I just say Google first then it starts listening for what I want to search for. Not that hard to say "Google" first when voice searching, I was already in a situation that allowed me to voice search (not in a meeting) and in a talking mood right?

  • EC

    I'd rather they not have all 5 chat programs in 1. I don't use G+ (and love the option of getting rid of it), and I'm in Canada, so can't use GTalk. Adding them all into one would just make things more cluttered, for me personally at least.

    • Jonathan Cammisuli

      We can use GTalk, we just can't use Voice.

      • EC

         You're right, forgot to differentiate it. But nonetheless, I still don't use it haha.

    • http://pctonic.net/ Ashutosh Mishra

      If they do it, Google will obviously create a smart super-messaging-app that will turn on only those services that you use (SMS in your case) and hide the ones you don't (Talk, Google+ Messenger). 

    • http://twitter.com/TheRealBeesley Beesley

      couldn't agree more! 

    • http://jeremyperez.com Jeremy

      I would. Maybe they can make it modular with other apps being able to plug into it in a similar fashion to how accounts and sync work, sign in choose options. It would be one app other apps can use as a unified front end for displaying messages. The one place to go for sending/receiving SMS, MMS, GTalk, GVoice, Messenger, Facebook, Yahoo!, AIM, KIK, ICQ, Skype etc...

      Many people HAVE to use multiple services for one reason or another, it would be nice if they could all be unified in one place.

    • warcaster

      Gtalk is universal, like any IM client.

  • whargharbl

    The People card actually says 'Lauren Ipsum', not 'Lorem Ipsum'.

    • Ron Amadeo

      Oh, ha, it does. Good spot.

  • supercynical

    Is it just me or does anyone else hate it when Google makes a prominent feature out of some new product that they've just decided everyone should use?
    I mean seriously - GoogleNow? Do I need this, do I want this? I have no problems navigating my phone as it stands, with ICS. Why would I suddenly want to use a new, questionably useful, feature, let alone have it on my lockscreen AND my menubar?

    • Ron Amadeo

      It's a shortcut to Search. It doesn't look bad, and there was nothing useful there before. Search is one of the main parts of Android and should be easily accessible from everywhere.

      If you don't like Now, you can turn it off.

      • supercynical

        that's good to know.
        search, for me, is my least-used android feature (after google wave and g+, lol). I know where things are on my phone, and if I want to search the web, my browser handles that.

        I will miss hardware buttons the most. I've never felt mystified by the back button, rather, I love it and have since windows-mobile days. Giving it up and letting developers decide when I can use it just seems wrong.

        • patapongirl

          Just because you don't use it doesn't mean all Android users don't. 

          I find Google Now extremely useful and intuitive.

        • smithers85

          developers don't get to decide what the back button does.
          in the aforementioned examples of the possible expanded use of it, the OS would be determining its function based on the app's reaction to the "back" action, not the actual app itself. 

          • Dianne Hackborn

            Developers *do* get to decide what the back button does.  In fact its behavior is very subtle -- if a dialog is open, when it receives the back button it closes; if a pop-up is open, it will handle the back button by dismissing itself; increasingly applications will handle it internally to modify their state (switch fragments, etc); the IME actually intercepts the back button before the application so it can decide to dismiss itself when the key is pressed and override the application's normal behavior.

            The big challenge with changing the back button to show what will happen in the application is that the OS doesn't know what will happen.  So it would need to depend on the application telling it what to show...  so no existing applications would have the back button change, resulting in a very inconsistent experience in what you see for the back button, potentially making things worse rather than better.

      • PhilNelwyn

        Ummm... please could you tell me how you turn it off?
        Until it supports French I won't use it, but I use Chrome, and in landscape mode I can't swipe to the next tab because of it, that's infuriating.

        • http://www.facebook.com/KenPietro Ken Pietro

          You can't shut that shortcut off. You can only shut the Google Now service off. That shortcut is shortcut to the regular search and Now is simply the splash page for it.

          • PhilNelwyn

            Ok, thank you.

  • Taz

    The icons should not have identical pixel counts. White takes up more visual space than the darker green.

    • Larizard

      Exactly. I'm sure designers will agree, that when it comes to design, "eyeballing" is the way to go. Mathematical calculations can only get you so far when aligning totally different shapes in space, especially letter forms. You need to do alignment visually.

      Although I totally agree with most of the things Ron said, especially regarding the Talk and Messaging icons. I wished they could be differentiated a little bit more.

    • Ron Amadeo

      Meh, I mean, the whole reason I posted it was because I eyeballed them and they looked differently sized. I don't go around meticulously measuring everything, it just stuck out as "uneven."

      • PhilNelwyn

        About details, did you notice that they removed a vibration when unlocking?
        There was one when touching the screen, one for the "lock on" effect as you rightly call it (the one they removed) and one when pulling your finger off the screen.
        It feels better now, don't you think?

        • Ron Amadeo

          Oh man, you've got me there. I don't use the lock screen and stood no chance of picking that out myself. Good spot.

  • Kidheated

    "Of course, the best way to fix this is to not have Talk and Messaging exist anymore, and merge Talk, Voice, Messaging, G+ Messenger, and G+ Hangouts. Do that. No one wants 5 chat programs."
    I completely agree. It is highly irritating to have to open up multiple apps to check all one's messages. A general message box type thing with tabbed browsing (or something to that effect) that can be set to default (like gmail app does) to a certain message type upon opening (say, texts) would be awesome. Even better would be if it could somehow be worked into the phone dialer and included voice mails too.

  • Morp

    Messaging is not a chat program.. it is for SMS...

    • jordanjay29

      Except for the fact that my SMS contacts are also my Google contacts...who are also slowly becoming circled on G+ as they join. So why shouldn't I be able to talk to them from one location and let the app decide which communication method is best?

      • andreas

        Fully agree thats would be really handy.

      • chlo1ber

        Well, many people outside the US especially neither use GTalk nor G+. If they do a "master" messaging app then I hope I can deactivate things maniually. I use G+ from time to time but not for messaging, I don't want to see my G+ contacts anywhere.
        It's the same s*it with the whole Facebook integration. I don't want it seen anywhere and I'm sure many of you agree. For most people, G+ is "the same" as Facebook.

        If they can merge it intelligently, then yes, why not - but I doubt Google can do it, certainly not on the first few iterations.

    • Ron Amadeo

      The difference being? Text over a cell phone network vs text over the internet is not something you should have to think about. 

      • confuzzledfish

        I disagree. Android or any phone OS and our telecoms for that matter aren't smart enough to determine whether the other phone they're sending a message to has a data connection. Not everyone has access to data all the time and SMS is one of the more universal aspect of mobile communication that you can even do it on a dumbphone. If you send a message to someone through Google Talk (assuming its linked to a number) and it sends an SMS instead, you'd be surprised that your prepaid balance or your SMS allocation got deducted. You'd be surprised how expensive $10 to top up your mobile would be for some people. Especially when the minimum wage on some countries is less than $300.

        • http://jeremyperez.com Jeremy

          re: ...aren't smart enough to determine whether the other phone has a data connection

          Um... Android knows, I can clearly see from GTalk who is connected (has data connection) and who isn't (no data connection). When data is down, ask user if he would like to send SMS. Or am I missing the point you are making?

          GTalk could possibly send the SMS via their own servers like they do with GVoice but showing as being sent from your number, cutting your SMS consumption in half as you'd only be charged for the reply back via SMS and not the one sent.

      • Thommcg

        Considering the cost implications, you should.

        • Ron Amadeo

          The phone should handle that, too.

          I want to text bob. If bob is on Google Talk, use that first, if not, fall back to text messaging. The one unified program should be set up to know which Text/IM/Chat/Whatever service I prefer, and which are the last resort.

          Having a million different programs, which, at the end of the day, all have me sending bits of text back and forth to a contact, is stupid.

      • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

        I agree that Google should merge up all of the internet-based messaging options, that's kind of a given since most of them rely on the same contact list anyway.  SMS is a bit of a different beast, mostly for the reasons given by confuzzledfish.  Windows Phone merges MSN Messenger, Facebook Chat, and SMS into a single interface very effectively, and it's something Google should ideally model their messaging experience on.  Still, there are some glaring flaws in the Windows Phone interface, but most could be solved with minor interface tweaks.

  • PhilNelwyn

    Oh, smart move from Google, the dots remain fixed so the unlocking gesture doesn't include "moving the unlock image to a predefined location" patented shit anymore.

  • Mitchell Feigley

    The microphone matches the one from the google search box on the web (when browsed to from a computer)

  • P1s70s

    Regarding your comment about the back button changing to "down" when the keyboard is on-screen, that feature/functionality is already present in ICS for tablets. So this must be a new feature for the phone version of JB.

    • Splash

      I thought that too - it was even in Honeycomb. Didn't know it wasn't in the phone version of ICS though - my One X doesn't have on-screen buttons...

  • carnegie0107

    They should model Messaging after the g+ app or Gmail. It should have a dropdown top-left to switch between sources (g+, gtalk, SMS, voice, or all) like folders or circles. This should persist in the conversation view, as a way to switch how I send my communication to this person. All messages (including missed calls and voicemail from Voice) from the contact should be visible on one thread if I select show all. Heck, make this app one with People, and differentiate between al messages and all people in this dropdown. But leave the messaging icon as a shortcut to "all messages" similar to how Maps includes icons for nav, latitude, and local. Anyone else love this idea/willing to help make a mockup?

    • carnegie0107

      Actually, gtalk and g+ messenger need to be merged entirely, with no distinction between the two on the web or anywhere. But that's another rant.

  • fixxmyhead

    Lol bonus fail points

  • Brian

    Wow, Ron... impressive level of AR. :)

    Maybe you can help me- does Jellybean have Bluetooth MAP support? I haven't flashed yet and would like to know before doing so, but there is no mention of it anywhere that I've found.

    Thanks!

    • Elliott Hansen

      I have Jellybean on my Nexus and will check for you. I don't know how to though

      • Brian

         If you have a vehicle that's capable of reading text messages over BT, trying to make that happen is probably the simplest way to find out.

  • makapav

    Clearly you guys missed it. Google did anyone in one of their I/O second that merging their various messaging services was a priority going forward and that having hangout and messenger together with talks was a big mistake.

    Personally the fact they can't fathom some of these basic things, including the much hyped 'hang up on a call from notification menu' tells me they have been dumb to what Samsung and HTC have been doing for over a year now.

    Google clearly has their fair share of not very smart people.

    • smithers85

      can't tell if trolling....
      anyways, being able to hang up from a notification isn't really "much hyped", and was only a small fragment of the overhaul that was done to the notification system in 4.1.
       it's beautiful.

    • Ravrahn

      Well, I certainly use Talk, and if I were in the US I'd use Voice, and if I had a front-facing camera I'd use Hangouts. Heaps of people use these services. You are not the only person.

  • TinmanTinman

    great article .But i think icons with different sizes may be a design choice . Why don't u guys ask Google. 

    Also can some one just install Cuastic 2 on Jelly bean GNEX and tell us what is the audio latency now?

    • ChavaM

      48ms

      • TinmanTinman

        thanks . Since 4.1 released so far is a developer preview ,I hope when they release the final version the latency is around 12 ms as they claim.

    • PhilNelwyn

      If the dev of this rom did it on Ice Cream Sandwich, I don't see why he wouldn't do it on Jelly Bean. Just wait for custom roms with this feature, or use a lockscreen app that has it.

  • warcaster

    Why is it so hard for Google to make the damn icons the same size. Even if they make them the same size, that doesn't mean they will be uniform though, because they don't have same size backgrounds like Apple does for their icons, so even if the icons are the same size, they don't necessarily appear to be inline, like if you compare the Messanging icon with the Play Store, one.

  • József Király

    I think the merge of the messaging apps will be done pretty soon (looking at Google Cloud Messaging), and the best way would be to make the Messaging app expandable via other APKs, thus enhancing it to the needed level (so that the non-CTS certified devices can still handle messaging).

    I love the idea of a unified Messaging/ Talk/ Voice app. Its the one thing I wish Android would do like iOS. The iMessaging app is actually a really good concept, and its the only app on my iFadpad that I use every day.

    Off the subject, will it be CM10 or CM9.1? :)

    • N2Fracture

      I'm willing to bet the good people at CM well do a 9.1 to add some of the functionality of JB to the ICS base of CM9. They did the same thing with 7.2 bringing some ICS goodness to Gingerbread. Just don't try and ask them for any kind of timeline. They all have day jobs to deal with.

    I want 5 chat programs. I DON'T want 1 program to rule them all. When I'm at a PC, I turn off Talk on my phone so the messages don't go to both.. Be more hassle if I had to go though alot of settings menus just to press the "sign out" button.

    • WestIndiesKING

      You really think its more effective to have 5 different chat programs? Also why wouldnt you be able to turn of google talk still on your phone and still have it running on your PC? Even if thet combined all of their chat clients you would still be able to turn off chat on the phone while its on your PC. I am not getting the problem that you feel you would be having if they united all of the chat platforms.

    Something in ICS 4.0.1 that bugs (pun intended) me is the fact that within a folder you can drag app icons wherever you like and the ones after it will bump down a space. However, for some strange reason, this same functionality is NOT available on the actual home screen.

    Would anyone happen to know if this is possible in Jelly Bean? Seems like it would be an easy fix, though I could very well be wrong.

      For anyone curious reading this, I've got JB now and this functionality IS included.

    I'm sorry, I'm not a software button guy, it just waste screen real-estate and throws games off. For instance on my wife's flyer...the software buttons are so defined that for instance, you can't play batman dark knight rises, the buttons for the game over lap the software buttons.

    I guess my 4.1 has been completely changed by Virgin. Looks and acts nothing like what you are describing. Oh well, off to find something that applies to me.
