Here's some good news for the ones owning a Nexus 4, Nexus 7, or a Nexus 10, launched last year, and waiting for the next level of Android refresh to arrive on the device.

Per reports, several users of the Nexus 7, Nexus 4, and Nexus 10 are stating that the devices have started getting the next Android 4.2.2 refresh. The information has also been posted on the popular social news Web site Reddit.

Although this new update, with the build JDQ39, is yet to receive any official changelog from Google, people are reporting that Bluetooth audio in the devices are working a lot better than it used to before the update, and apart from that, there are also some tweaks to several animations within the devices. However, that's about it.

"Tested out bluetooth streaming in my car. Much less hicups when streaming from Rdio or GMusic, but still not perfect. I got disconnected from my stereo when it switched from WiFi to 3G," the Reddit post states.

"The differences I'm noticing are that the notification shade drop down animation is slower and I think the icon in the top right is different after you change to the quick settings screen. I also think the regular settings screen might be a slightly lighter grey. Other than those things and the bluetooth being better, I don't see anything else."

Users will also be happy to know that this update weighs in at around just 50 MB, at least that's the case for the Nexus 10, and this means that it's a quick and easy download for those who are willing to upgrade their devices.

"This is why it's a good to own a Nexus. Many of the phones in people's pockets right now are still on Android 4.1, which means 4.2.2 feels that much farther away," Android Authority writes. "Speaking about far away, what about the next version of Android?"

There is actually a pretty high chance that these Nexus devices might also get the next generation Android refresh known as Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as soon as it is announced, or even pushed out by the company.

However, it is yet to be seen if Google actually decides to reveal the new refresh at the upcoming Google I/O event.
