Android 12 has been released in beta, and there are a lot of new features to get excited about! In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most exciting new additions.
Android 12 brings enhancements to security, privacy, and performance. There are also some great new features for developers. Let’s take a closer look at what Android 12 has to offer!
With Android 12, you’ll be able to customize your phone with a custom color palette and redesigned widgets. Color extraction allows you to choose your wallpaper, and the system automatically determines which colors are dominant, which ones are complementary and which ones look great.
This work is being done in collaboration with our software, hardware, and product teams to make sure that your personalized experience is consistent across the entire device.
Android 12 also includes new widgets that make it easy to see your most important information at a glance. With these improvements, Android 12 makes it easy for you to personalize your phone and make it your own.
Fluid motion and animations
Android 12 is faster, more responsive, and more power-efficient, thanks to a host of under-the-hood improvements. One of the most noticeable changes in Android 12 is the addition of fluid motion and animations.
These make your experience more alive and responsive, while also helping to conserve battery life. Another great new feature is the simplified interactions, which makes it easier to use your device with one hand.
Android 12 also features recrafted system sounds that provide a more pleasant listening experience. All of these changes come together to make Android 12 the best version of Android yet.
Redesigned system spaces
With a sharp, at-a-glance view of your app notifications, whatever you’re presently listening to or watching, and Quick Settings that let you control nearly the whole operating system with a swipe and a tap, the notification shade is more intuitive and playful.
The Quick Settings space doesn’t just look and feel different. It’s been rebuilt to include Google Pay and Home Controls, while still allowing for customization so you can have everything you need most in one easy-to-access place.
You can now long-press the power button to invoke Assistant to make a phone call, open apps, ask questions or read aloud text-heavy articles. With the new design, your conversation with the Assistant will appear in a dedicated space, making it easy to keep track of your conversation and get the information you need without having to switch between apps.
Private and secure by design
Android 12 beta is here, and it comes with a number of new features that improve privacy and security. One of the most notable changes is the new Privacy Dashboard, which gives users a single view into permissions settings and data access.
The dashboard also makes it easy to revoke app permissions with just a few clicks. In addition, Android 12 includes a new indicator in the status bar that lets you know when apps are accessing your microphone.
This way, you can be sure that your conversations are only being recorded when you want them to be. With these new features, Android 12 is more private and secure than ever before.
