Verizon Wireless just announced the Galaxy Nexus will receive a roll-out update to Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean starting today.

Google introduced the latest version of Android in October with plans for Nexus devices to update by November. While many Nexus devices have long sported Jelly Bean functionality, the Galaxy Nexus didn’t get its boost until March 19.

According to Verizon:

The software includes new camera features such as photosphere to take 360 degree panoramic pictures that can easily be shared with friends. The camera app also has new tools to add filters and borders, further customizing pictures. Additionally, an all new Gesture Keyboard is available, allowing users to slide their finger from letter to letter to type a word. Other enhancements include allowing users to place widgets on the lock screen for easier access to popular apps such as Calendar, Gmail and Clock.

‘Tis about time.
