The Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) update for the DROID Bionic has been approved by Verizon as build number 98.72.22. The update will include a number of important goodies like an immensely improved voice search, smarter notifications with actionable items, a better keyboard, and of course, Google Now. Your device should also run smoother, feature more intuitive graphics, and react quicker to touch responses thanks to Project Butter. 

Outside of new Android features, Motorola has improved voice and data connectivity (hotspot too) and calendar settings. They also removed bloatware.

A soak test of the update to members of Motorola’s Feedback Network will likely start before the mass rollout happens, so stay patient for now. Once that is complete, we’ll be sure to report back.

Update:  Verizon confirms that the update will start to roll out in phases from April 15.

The update is 98.72MB in size.
