  • Expandable, actionable notifications allowing you to take action directly from the notifications shade
  • Android Beam™ now lets you send photos and more
  • Widgets work like magic: as you place widgets on the screen, everything elseautomatically moves to make room; when they’re too big, widgets resize on their own
