After a few months of waiting, Galaxy S III owners are now beginning to see an update available for download OTA in the form of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. SIII owners in Poland are amongst the first to get the latest Android update and it appears that the update will be spreading across Europe shortly.
The new update brings a number of new features to the phone which includes project butter which aims to make the user interface as sleek and smooth as possible when transitioning and responding to touch. Also, Google Now will be added to the device. Google Now is a service that aims to anticipate what the user wants to do and organises information accordingly.
To get the update you can go to the settings menu and select the check for updates option. Alternatively, you can use the KIES software and tether your device to a PC or Mac to install the update. To do an OTA update you need to have at least 50% battery and have a WiFi connection available to download it.
Although the update is rolling out to Poland at the moment it is expected that others in Europe will also get the update. Note that this is initially for unlocked/SIM free devices and those on a carrier might have a longer wait while the carriers drag their feed over it.
