Is This One of the Android 4.2.2 Changes?


Last week, we began seeing signs that new Nexus 4 handsets appeared to be arriving from the factory with Android 4.2.2 installed. That created a bit of a mystery, as we hadn’t seen Google release any such update for existing handsets, and it left us wondering just what might be changing. Today we might have at least a portion of the answer, upon learning of the resolution to a Jelly Bean glitch.

Since the release of Android 4.2, users have been complaining about problematic Bluetooth audio streaming. Yesterday, a Google employee finally posted a note to the bug’s comment page reporting that the A2DP bug had been fixed, and the change would be present in the “next release” of Android.

That’s great to hear, but is he talking about Android 4.2.2? That may hinge on whether or not the phones we’ve already seen it on constitute the makings of an official release or not. We’ve also got to consider the timing here; certainly if this bug was just fixed a day or two ago, it couldn’t already be out on phones, but there’s the chance that the issue was fixed even earlier and we’re just hearing about it now.

So, as far as Bluetooth being fixed in Android 4.2.2, we’d say there’s a distinct possibility, but even if it misses that release, it’s absolutely going to be in the next one.
