Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie May Feature Google Now Widget

By - Source: Android Central | B 7 comments

Image of a Google Now widget briefly appeared on search giant's support page.

Google may have showcased a potential feature for Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie after an image of a Google Now widget appeared on its support page.

Currently, the search engine company hasn't integrated widget support for Google Now, but the firm's support forum depicted a post -- since removed -- that confirms the widget's existence.

Google Now monitors a user's daily activities and then showcases information it believes will be relevant to their day, as shown by the image on the right.

Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to be announced mid-May at Google's annual I/O event. Google has all but confirmed that Jelly Bean's successor will be Key Lime Pie, while subsidiary Motorola is working on its X smartphone, which is believed to run on Android 5.0 with a debut scheduled for said event.

    I'd like to use my Nexus 7 without a wire to the speakers across the room and spending money on apps to fix things like screen flicker.

    Sorry to spoil the fun, but this is actually just a picture of Google Now lock screen widget that rolled out with today's Google Search app update...

    In another thread Google just released 4.2.2 that is supposed to fix some audio issues. Maybe it'll help with yours. Good luck.

    ' During January, Google stated that some Nexus devices updated to Android 4.2 (except the Nexus 4) were affected by audio drop-outs when streaming audio through Bluetooth using the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) system. "We have fixed the A2DP streaming stutter problem," a representative said. "The next release should have the fix. Sorry about the problem." '

    Thanks! :)  Perfect timing, my Nexus just downloaded the update and is rebooting to install. I haven't been this excited since when I first got it. *fingers crossed*
