Android 12 allows you to put the applications you are not using to sleep to free up space on your terminal.
Although only a small percentage of devices received the update to Android 11, we are already receiving initial information about its successor. Android 12.
The first beta version for Android 11 developers was released on February 2020 and the first beta version for Android 12 developers is expected to be released within a month with a very interesting new function: to be able to hibernate the applications we are not using to free up space in our terminal.
A very useful new feature will be available with Android 12: application hibernation
Thanks to some entries by a user in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), about which he informed the developers of XDA developers, we found out Android 12 will have a new feature that will allow us to put the applications we don’t use to sleep.
What has not yet been clarified about this novelty of the new version of Android is whether the applications are automatically put to sleep or, on the contrary, we can manually choose which apps we want to put to sleep and which not.
In the event that applications automatically go to sleep, they would do so after a period of time in which we have not used these applications while if it is managed manually we have to Choose which applications to put to sleep so that they can be reactivated when we want to use them again.
There are currently applications in the Play Store like Greenify that allow us to put the applications that we don’t use regularly but always to sleep It is more reliable that this function is performed by the operating system itself without the intervention of third-party applications.
