Google posts Jelly Bean's changelog, details every feature

The full rundown of Jelly Bean is up, so now you can see everything it can do in detail.

So you thought you knew everything there was to know about Jelly Bean did you, big shot? Well Google's just posted the changelog for Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, breaking down every new feature into an easy to digest format, Engadget reports.

Google Now and the new and improved Voice Search are present and correct, but it also goes over other features, like the keyboard, in exacting detail. Read on for the full lowdown.

Everything should feel faster in Jelly Bean, and "switching between apps is effortless, like turning pages in a book." The camera has been improved: swipe the viewfinder and you'll see your photos without having to leave the camera app. You can pinch to zoom out to get to the filmstrip mode where you'll see all your snaps, too. And just swipe up to delete a picture. Want to undo your delete? A single tap will do it.

So far, so as expected. But what about the lesser known features?

The keyboard has been improved, with dictionaries being more accurate and more relevant. The language model adapts over time, and you can switch languages quickly by hitting the dedicated language selector key. It has custom keyboard input styles for more than 20 languages. You can also choose the input styles you want for each keyboard, and switch between them while typing by hitting a hotkey.

The People app now retrieves high-res photos for Google contacts with public Google Plus profiles. You can return a missed call or reply by SMS with a single touch. The visually impaired can use Gesture Mode to navigate the UI using touch and swipe gestures combined with speech recognition. And it has full support for braille accessibility services.

Anyway, it's a pretty exhaustive rundown. But if you have any questions about Jelly Bean (other than 'when will my device see it?'), you should find the answer there.
