Also new is daydream in display options (like a screen saver for when ur charging or docked)

A two finger swipe will display the quick settings panel straight up instead of a regular swipe and a click in the icon.

Photo sphere and other enhancements in camera and gallery though I hate that horrible grey background when viewing pictures...enough of this already...gimme a simple black background please google! That goes for settings and anywhere else they have grey

Also as seen earlier new gmail allows pinch to zoom but has to be enabled in settings

Also supports triple tap to zoom like in ios. Has to be enabled in accessibility.

I believe it scans and warns before allowing downloads of potentially dangerous apps.

New clock with timer, stopwatch and world clock. Thanks Google. But have to scroll manually through cities list! No search function! REALLY!?

Edit: swipe gestures available on native keyboard.

Can have personalised msg on home lock screen

There's probably more but that's all I can remember.

thanks for the info, very helpful.

any idea if its possible to make the personalized home screen message have multiple lines, instead of just the one line scrolling across the screen?

btw to everybody wondering, got my update OTA yesterday afternoon on unlocked GSM version.
