Over the last few months many users of the Android platform have been left wondering when their hardware would receive the Android ICS update, but recently Google has added to this by announcing another update, and now it has been confirmed that the Nexus S Android Jelly Bean update is underway via an OTA update.
Recently we reported to you that owners of the handset in Australia would be receiving the update starting the 19th, and now as GottaBe Mobile are reporting Google has confirmed that the Nexus S Android Jelly Bean update has begun on specific carriers.
The company decided to post on Google+ and confirmed that the update was hitting the Nexus S on H3G, O2, T-Mobile, Rogers, and Vodafone. The company has stated that the update is hitting most countries but strangely doesn’t specify which ones, and for those that are still waiting for the update Google says that more users will start seeing it soon after the initial release.
This confirmation by Google comes shortly after users revealed that the update had reached at least two versions of the handset, with the Over-the-Air update arriving for some owners yesterday. This rollout of the Android Jelly Bean update will mean that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Xoom are next in line to be updated.
The Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+, Galaxy Nexus, and Motorola Xoom are among the first devices down to be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and other hardware such as the Galaxy S3, HTC One X, and HTC One S should be receiving the update in the next couple of months.
Owners of the devices in the US though may have to wait longer before seeing the update, which will bring a number of new features such as Google Now, customizable Notifications, and much more.
