Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean came out early this year's summer, and while most Android devices still haven't seen their Jelly Bean update, Google is still plowing ahead with newer versions of Android. Google released a minor update, Android 4.1.2, last week, and it looks like Google is hard at work at an even bigger upgrade - Android 4.2.

The latest detail to surface about Android 4.2 comes from website Android Police which has somehow gotten their hands on an early alpha build. It seems that Android 4.2 will feature a second pull-down menu that will give the user quick access to basic settings such as Wi-Fi, BlueTooth, and GPS.
So it looks like on top of the standard notifications pull-down page which alerts users to texts, emails, and more, Google will be adding a second page that can be activated with a downward swipe so that users won't have to go into the 'Settings' page every time.
Seems like it will be a welcome addition, but that's not all that Android Police has discovered about Android 4.2.
Only a few days ago, Android Police posted a video detailing the new Gmail app for Android 4.2. The two biggest features will now be the ability to pinch zoom and to delete or archive certain messages simply by swiping them off the screen - m ch like the notifications page allows one to do.
These aren't huge upgrades, and they won't be introducing a completely new interface or look, but these little features are sure to make users happy by streamlining and making the Android experience more intuitive.
Be sure to stay tuned as more details are revealed about Android 4.2.
