On Friday, Nov. 9, Motorola had announced that its Droid RAZR M would be getting an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the update would be pushed out to users in phases. Now, per reports, users on Verizon have started receiving the Jelly Bean update on the Droid RAZR M.
"True to their word, Motorola has indeed updated the DROID RAZR M for Verizon Wireless to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean here in November of 2012. This update represents a large stride for Verizon as well as Motorola and also brings on another reason why them being acquired by Google was a great, great thing for all parties involved," reported Slash Gear.
The Jelly bean update will bring with several new and improved features, which include Google Voice, Google Now, improved notifications, enhanced camera software etc.
The Droid RAZR M was released just two months back and users of the smartphone will welcome the update, which has arrived so soon.
"This update is "rolling out" right now, this meaning you'll have your update soon if not immediately, and Over The Air, too!" noted Slash Gear.
Even though the over-the-air (OTA) is rolling out presently, it is yet to reach all Verizon users. Users who want to check if the software update has made it to their RAZR M yet can go to "Device Settings" and manually check for any update notification. After updating the device, users will be running the software version 98.12.4 (Android 4.1.1).
However, neither Motorola nor Verizon have divulged by when the roll out would be complete. Users who haven't received the software update need not worry as it is being pushed out in phases and will make it to all Droid RAZR M devices on Verizon over the next couple of days.
Additionally, Google released Android 4.2 Jelly bean today. However, it could be a while before the the RAZR M gets the latest Android 4.2 OS update, and for now users will have to make do with Android 4.1.
