The newest Android 4.2 update JOP40C went live last night on my Nexus 4, but since I was out and about at a Blazers game, my quick lock screen widgets video wasn’t of the highest quality. So after returning home, I was able to snap this new video, which shows not only the lock screen widgets and how they work, but multi-user support on tablets, as well.

I’ve got to admit that I’m a bit confused by lock screen widgets. Not only do they bring security into question, but all it takes is a simple swipe to unlock and then you are sitting at your home screens which already have all of your widgets. It’s like Google is turning your lock screen into your new home screen, which sort of defeats the purpose of it being a “lock” screen, right?

But not only that, they are slightly confusing and will certainly take some getting used to.
