The previous years were not so fascinating for Google. I meant to say that though Pixel 4a is a very good phone, talking about Google’s flagship / only series, less than 1 million Pixel 5 units were sold so far as per 2020’s report and Android 11 also has very few updates visually, You have to look deeper to find out the changes. Hope this year Google creates an impact with their products. These are all rumored features of Android 12, and the first look of Google’s next OS version
So this is already a well-known feature in iOS but Google will add this feature natively to Android 12. It may be called Pixel Double-Tap actions. The feature is very useful as per users’ concerns. When you double-tap at the back of the phone it may take a screenshot or may launch Google Assistant, report says Google may allow users to adjust the sensitivity of the double-taps or one can disable them also as a feature.
Android 12 will get a fresh UI. A recent leak by XDA Developers shows that it will be more minimal in look, the theme in light mode is more beige-tone and transparent. Every corner gets a rounded design, even the notifications are also with rounded corners. This is just a leak, maybe something more interesting will be there. Google is working on its material theme for a long time and will see a significant improvement in Android 12.
Privacy Settings Changes
Like Apple Google is also in the thought to make privacy checked settings features. So far from the leaks of XDA developers and 9To5Google, there will be a privacy indicator in the top right corner. When an application is using the camera or the microphone it will appear there, like a popup, not only that the privacy page in the settings will get a new look also.
This feature is already been in some famous UIs like Oxygen OS, Color OS, and also can be used with the help of third-party applications. But according to XDA, Google will add this feature natively with the Android 12 release.
Android 12 will take split-screen features to the next level with the new “App Pairs” in-system mode. Reports say that one should be able to treat as one task in the split-screen view. Android 12 will offer this App Pairs feature and also
According to XDA, this will be a tile in the quick settings of Android 12, and “Reduce Brightness” seems to be an accessibility feature for the visually impaired.
There is no such native feature in any of the Android versions till now, which offers theming options ( not talking about dark mode ). I mean to say there are no presets of themes in the previous android versions. This time with Android 12 there will be different color themes options this will be an interesting feature of a UI.
From a report by XDA, Android 12’s internal dessert name is “Snow Cone.” The One-handed mode will be more of a comprised version, the picture-in-picture mode is also pinched added with resizing feature. To reduce battery usage Android 12 automatically hibernate applications, which are not actively used. Other than that one can share Wi-Fi Passwords via nearby share options and use Wi-Fi instantly. The Android updates in Android 12 will be more frequent and may natively support Wireguard VPN.
This is all about Android 12 leaked features. Android 12 official or beta release may come in around August 2021. The one thing that makes a real difference in the future is, some companies are taking user’s privacy seriously. Thanks for Reading.
I love to write.
