Jelly Bean pushing out to Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi owners in US

After a brief soak test, which seems to have gone well, Motorola has starting pushing out the Jelly Bean update to Xoom Wi-Fi version in the United States. There is no word on the roll-out in other countries or even the Verizon version in the country.

The update brings all the Jelly Bean goodness. You can find out the full change-log below:

Improved User Interface and Response – Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning pages in a book. Jelly Bean makes your Android device even more responsive by boosting your device’s CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don’t need it to improve battery life.

Expandable, Actionable Notifications – Now you can take action directly from the notifications shade. And because the notifications are expandable, you can get an even deeper look into the things that matter most, like multiple emails or photos on Google+.

Widgets work like magic – With Jelly Bean it’s now even easier to personalize your home screen. As you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room. When they’re too big, widgets resize on their own. Interacting with your favorite apps and customizing your home screen has never been easier. Seamlessly view and share photos – Just swipe over from camera to filmstrip view to instantly view the photos you just took, and quickly swipe away the ones you don’t like. Now sharing–and bragging–are a breeze.

A Smarter Keyboard – Android’s dictionaries are now more accurate, more relevant. The language model in Jelly Bean adapts over time, and the keyboard even guesses what the next word will be before you’ve started typing it.

Improved Text-to-Speech Capability – With improved text-to-speech capabilities, voice typing on Android is even better; it works even when you don’t have a data connection.

The update is available OTA.
