Restricted multi- user profiles:

Those who are tired of their children who use app and screw everything it’s a relief for them. This new feature provides you control the usage of apps and other content on a user level. Google provided a demo in which we saw that being logged into a restricted user profile caused an app to behave differently.

Restricted user profile is obviously going to attract the users.

As well, retail kiosks that use tablets for customer service or as POS systems will be able to make use of the feature. By enabling multiple user profiles, businesses will be able to take advantage of the versatility of tablets by using them in different contexts as per cnet.


Other add-on and updated features:

  • Bluetooth Smart.
  • OpenGL ES 3.0 for better 3D graphics
  • DRM APIs
  • Restricted profiles
  • Easier text input
  • Faster user-switching
  • Support for Hebrew and Arabic right-to-left languages
  • Bluetooth AVRCP
  • Background Wi-Fi location

While many user were waiting for version 5.0, Key-lime pie, but I guess Google is playing smart and slow. For now the this version is available to only Nexus7 but  the update will be provided to other android user in a shortwhile.
