Google spotted Android 13 a year before its release. What changed

Probably everyone knows that Android 12 is out now . Google released it back in early October, but until now there are not twenty models of smartphones, the owners of which will be able to declare that they have already received the update. This is because the search giant is relinquishing any authority over everything related to the distribution of the update. It is her responsibility to develop it and provide the source code to the manufacturers. It’s no wonder that with such a load, she has already almost completed work on Android 13 .

Colleagues from the XDA edition managed to get hold of an early build of Android 13 , codenamed Tiramisu , and install it on their devices to test it. Despite the fact that most likely we have an early alpha version in which a lot can still change, already now we can get a completely objective impression of what the upcoming update will be like.

What’s new in Android 13

From a design point of view , there are almost no changes in Android 13 , and most likely there will not be. Not every year to change the interface design. Let users at least get used to Material You, and then they will see. However, there is still something. For example, in Android 13, notifications have become one of the system permissions. That is, until the user gives the application access to notifications, it cannot even access the notification shade.

Additionally, Android 13 will allow users to customize the lock screen by choosing the clock and date display format. If desired, you can place an information block in the middle, side, bottom or top, and also prevent it from moving, as it happens now, if, for example, the user receives notifications.

Of the functional innovations – even if they do not look too large-scale yet – the following can be noted:

  • The efficiency of the power saving mode has been improved . Now it reallocates resources more intelligently and suppresses the activity of the most heavyweight applications that spend the most energy.
  • Now you can select the language for each application separately. If before the software mimicked the system, setting the language of the smartphone, then in Android 13 it will be possible to customize it individually.
  • SplitView will become triple. In Android 13, users will be able to place windows of three applications at once on one screen at the same time, whereas before their number could not exceed two.

New version of Android 2022

Yes, there really are not as many changes as we would like, but you need to keep in mind that this is only an early alpha. Of course, Google does not call it that, but since beta testing has not yet started, any tests that precede it can be called alpha testing. Despite this, the significance of some innovations is indeed at a fairly high level. And for the release, which will take place no earlier than October 2022, there will obviously be more new chips.

Firstly, it’s really cool that Google is concerned about user safety and has finally included notifications in the permission system. The fact is that earlier, if you installed malware and did not give it any privileges, it could send you commands through notifications, urging, for example, to follow certain links or download certain components from the Internet. This will not happen anymore.

Secondly, the power saving mode, which changed in Android 13 , while not new, is actually intended to increase the battery life of compatible smartphones. He will be more careful about running processes, blocking only those that consume a lot of energy and can provoke a premature discharge of the device. Previously, the mode could unload all software from the background and not frown.

Well, and thirdly, the choice of language is a really useful thing that Google for some reason did not think about before. Oddly enough, but there are some applications in which I personally would like to change the language. Sometimes this is done in order to confuse strangers who will gain access to your smartphone, and sometimes for educational purposes if you are learning a foreign language and do not want to interact with your native one while studying.
