Android 4.1 Jelly Bean proven carrying rough but working code for multi-user support (video)

| August 14, 2012

If in that place’s ever been a persistent gripe among families sharing mobile devices, it’s been the default of multiple user profiles — hand that iPad or Nexus 7 to Junior and you may hold to play a spot-the-differences prey when it comes back. Some dilatory overdue testing of previously found code references in Jelly Bean shows that Google, at smallest, has explored ending that anxiety through the whole extent of who uses the family gadgets. Command-ancestry code in AOSP-based versions of Android 4.1 be disposed let you create a separate visitant profile, complete with its own fastening screen security, home screen layout and limited settings. To take for granted that the code is unpolished would subsist an understatement, however. Apps and verily some notifications cross over from the vital account, which could prove more than a small embarrassing if the hardware is left in the inaccurately hands. At least it’s without pain to revert back, as the instructions (and video in relation to the break) show. The real invite to contest will be waiting to see when — or really, if — Google gets to finishing multi-user digest and turns that Nexus 7 into the communal slab we want it to be.
