As part of the Google I / O 2022 conference, Android 13 was announced and its second beta version was launched for many smartphones and tablets. This time around, the company is focusing on improving security and refining the Material You design language introduced last year. In Android 13, the user will be able to fine-tune the access of applications to certain personal data.
For example, instead of full access to all files, there are now two categories: “Photos and Videos” and “Music and Audio”. In addition, Android 13 will not only notify the user when apps try to access the clipboard, but will also clean it up regularly to avoid data leaks.
In terms of appearance, Android 13 is moving towards unification: now, in addition to adaptive themes, ready-made color options are also provided. Moreover, from now on, the icons of third-party applications can be adapted to the uniform color and visual style of the system by turning on the “Themed icons” switch.
Well, in terms of convenience, Google has provided the ability to set languages for each application used. Finally, Android 13 will incorporate all the developments of Android 12L, optimized for large tablet displays.
You can try out these and many other lesser innovations from today: beta firmware is already available to ASUS, Lenovo, Nokia, OnePlus, Realme, Tecno, Vivo and other brands.
