Google unveiled the latest version of its Android operating system this week,. Now available as a developer preview, Android 12 appears to be as beautiful as Android 11, with some new features and some performance fixes to help your phone run more smoothly.
If you’re eager to try out the new OS, you can. But be warned that as a first developer preview, it’s probably full of bugs, and is not for the average person to try at this point – especially not on your primary device. We expect Google to launch a public beta in May and the final version around August or September.
We have seen the biggest three new features in Android 12 so far compared to Android 11.
App Privacy Features
According to the Android Developers blog post, Google is adding several new privacy features to apps to give users more transparency and control. An update gives you more information about how cookies can be used on sites, while another change is how the app exports information to prevent information from activities, services, and receivers.
It is worth noting that these policies are less strict than those in Apple’s recent iOS software release, including the new app ““Which lets people know what personal data their applications are collecting, and an upcoming change that requires developers to ask people for permission to gather data and track them on applications and websites.
With Android 12, Google is changing the design of notifications to make them more modern and functional. When you tap on a notification, it will take you directly to the app or action you want to take, rather than going through an intermediary service to initiate that action. According to this blog post everything should run fast.
As noted by tech site XDA developers, Android 12 also gets a new button that lets you snooze unimportant notifications and choose how long to do so. You can also turn on the ranking of adaptive notifications to reorder your notifications based on how Android works with different apps and reset the ranking if you don’t like it.
One hand mode
Android 12 includes some design changes that make it easy to operate Android phones with one hand and your thumb. XDA developers noted that the updated settings UI moves the search bar to the bottom of the display for easy one-hand access. It also revealed a new feature called “Silky Home” that makes the entire interface more suitable for one-handed use.
