These are the messages that will arrive on phones and tablets with Android 12.
It becomes a little clearer every day Android 12 It will be one of the biggest updates in the operating system’s recent history. If the waiting time until the arrival of the Android 12 preview version has been counted for days, we were able to collect a good amount of information about the next major update of the operating system.
But now a big leak shows us firsthand what that would be Main news from Android 12From a fresh look and an update of the Material Design lines to useful tools and functions that will finally land on Google’s mobile platform.
“Material NEXT”, the development in the design of the operating system
A few days ago we saw a number of screenshots from Android 12 depicting the changes related to the design of the platform that would come with the new version of the system.
Now we know that these surveys match what Google called internally “The way to the next material”This leads us to believe the company is planning a step forward in terms of physical aspect of the platform by updating its aesthetic lines.
We do not know concrete changes that will come with me NEXT materialalthough the latest leaked data indicates that Google intends to do so Renew aspects like notifications, the lock screen or the always active screen mode.
“Some of the changes in development include changing the notification icons always on display so they don’t focus on the new layout, changing the watch view and smart area to align on top, and moving the close button off the Below session and owner information at the bottom of the lock screen instead of in the key lock view and add the text from Pixel’s Now Playing to the rotating text on the lock screen. “
They are also mentioned Changes in the design of the device unlock mode via dot patternor include device controls in a portion of the lock screen.
Additionally, the theme engine we heard about weeks ago is mentioned again, which could take the operating system’s customization capacity to another level.
Bubble chat improvements
Android 11 introduced that Notifications and conversations in floating bubbles after several years in development. Unfortunately, the implementation wasn’t as sophisticated as you might expect.
And while it’s not clear how Google wants to improve this element with Android 12, it seems that at least it has been confirmed Animations have been redesigned to provide a smoother and more intuitive experience.
Rotation mode “Smart” and one-handed mode
Android has offered the option for this for a number of years Rotate the screen content manually when the system detects that we have rotated the mobile phone, even if the automatic screen rotation is disabled.
But everything indicates that Google wants to go further, and as suggested in 9to5Google, in Android 12 the device would be able to Identify the user’s camera position and rotate the screen content depending on the angle of view.
Nor would it be the only change aimed at improving the usability with devices. And it was discovered that after years of waiting Android 12 would finally introduce a “one-handed mode”. to make the equipment easier to use.
Improvements in game mode and “picture in picture”
Eventually it was found that Android 12 would enhance the system’s native image in picture modeThis allows you to play content in small floating windows while still using the applications.
In this sense we speak of the possibility Resize windows in floating mode pip in a much simpler wayas well as the option of hide floating windows can access it again quickly and with one gesture.
Then there are the clues that suggest it Android 12 would include a “game mode” Similar to what we’ve already seen in the customization levels of some device manufacturers. This mode would manage aspects like No brightness level, automatic rotation or fault mode while a game is in progress.
Android 12’s cute name would be Snow Cone
All that has been seen above is that What’s new in Android 12 somehow that seems to have already been confirmed. However, it is not the only thing we know about the new version of the system.
And so it is that they found in XDA that although Google no longer uses names of candy or desserts to name the new versions of its operating system, it continues to use that nomenclature internally to refer to each delivery.
So we know that Android 12 would be “Snow Cone”, just like Android 11 was “Red Velvet Cake”. We’ll have to wait to see if Google surprises us with some sort this time Easter egg relative to the cute name of the new version of Android.
