Cant take a call? Now you can fire off a quick response rather than just ignoring the call: a canned text message reply is just a touch away. You can even create your own quick responses.
With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web and the phone.

Your edits are saved as a copy, so you can always get to the original. And one-touch sharing lets you share your masterpiece.
When you shoot videos, you can choose from a number of silly faces and other fun effects. Galaxy Nexus is smart enough to recognize individual facial features, give your friends big eyes, squeeze heads, make noses bigger. Or change the scenery with background replacement.
