Update brings Google Now, Voice Search, Project Butter

As promised late last week, Motorola has begun rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD. Owners of the two Motorola handsets should begin receiving notifications of the availability of an over-the-air update either today or over the next few days, as Verizon is making the upgrade available in phases. Users can check for upgrade availability by visiting the System Updates tab under the About Phone settings option.

The update to Jelly Bean brings access to Google Now, Google's Siri-like digital assistant that provides real-time information on traffic, weather, and more. It also brings improved voice search that can give localized information and supports 34 languages. Users will also see improved notifications, which can they can interact with through gestures.

    I lost the ability to use voice for entering text to messages or email. The microphone icon dissapeared from the keyboard.
