Android 4.2 Nexus Update Enables Lockscreen Widgets
Google has made a small update available to Android 4.2 Nexus devices that enables several features. The primary new tool is the ability to add widgets to the lockscreen. The lockscreen itself has been altered to accomodate the new widgets and lets users choose between using the widgets, unlocking the device, or going to the camera. The widgets available for the lock screen include Gmail, calendar, messaging, and other communications tools. The update is available to the Nexus 7 and Nexus 4, which goes on sale via the Google Play Store today.
