Visual Voicemail

  • Premium Visual Voice Mail, which converts voice mails to text so you can read them discreetly.
  • Basic Visual Voice Mail, with a 20-message mailbox, is included at no charge.

Accessibility

  • Color Adjustment has been added
  • ‘Magnification Gestures’ label is now ‘Touch Zoom’ label
  • ‘Shades’ label is now ‘Screen Shades’ label
  • ‘Captions’ have been added
  • ‘Touch and Hold Delay’ is now ‘Touch Feedback Time
  • ‘Speak Passwords’ label is now ‘Read Passwords’ label
  • ‘Power Button Ends Call’ label is now ‘Power Key Ends Call’ label
  • ‘Easy Access’ label is now ‘Accessibility Settings Shortcut’ label

As always, an incoming software update means you have two options to consider. You can sit back and wait for the notification to arrive or go looking. Those choosing the former will have the easiest path as that involves nothing more than following the prompts. Of course, the latter isn't difficult -- it just involves a few extra taps.

Those looking for the update should grab their handset and navigate to Settings -> About phone -> Software updates -> Check for Updates. Assuming the update is ready for your particular device it will be a matter of following the prompts from that point forward.

    Got it yesterday and want so say its about damn time!

    But good timing too.. now able to get the Google camera app with Lens Blur so that makes me happy as photographer who bought this phone for the 13mp OIS camera that has been mostly hit or miss. At least I can take advantage of something exciting to spruce up the camera that is horribly slow yet capable of amazing images.
