Google Announces Upgrade for Android OS

Google has announced Android 4.3, the newest version of the smartphone OS, although the modifications are minor. To address the ongoing problem of children making in-app purchases without parental permission, the new OS upgrade now includes profiles that allow different levels of access depending on who is using the tablet.


Android 4.3 also now supports Bluetooth Smart technology, opening the door to mobile apps that connect to new devices like fitness sensors.

Android 4.3 is rolling out to existing Nexus devices, although other manufacturers may take longer to roll out the upgrade as they tend to customize the OS a bit first.

It can also be presumed that the Moto X which Motorola is due to announce will also come with the new OS variant.
