The leaked build of Android 13 reveals many features that Google plans to offer to more smartphone users, despite the fact that Android 12L for folding is yet to come.
Although Android 12L for foldable devices is currently in beta, there is already new in Android 13. And it seems that the Android 13 Developer Preview could be available in a few months, given the status of the leaked build.
According to GSMArena, Android 13 Tiramisu is getting its first look, as screenshots of an initial version of Android 13 have been revealed. There are a couple of new features that aim to give users more control over apps and other services. .
The first feature has been codenamed ‘Panlingual’ and means that instead of setting one language to apply universally to all applications and menus, users could set one universal language for the user interface and menus, but then set languages for applications in one per application.
This would offer multilingual users more options within the ‘Languages and input’ menu which can also be accessed through the ‘App Information’ screen.
Below is evidence within Android 13 that suggests that notifications could become a subscription feature in the future. This means that applications will no longer be able to spam users with notifications without their consent.
As you can see from the screenshots, the ‘Notifications’ are listed as permissions that can be denied or allowed, and that permission might even be revoked after a period of time.
By default, any application installed on Android will send notifications at will. Although there are notification settings to prevent this from happening, not all users are aware of them. If a user installs the Taco Bell app, Android 13 may ask the user if they want to receive alerts about nighttime cravings.
Lock screen widget layouts
There is also a new design for the lock screen clock. With Android 12, the clock changed to a “two-line” design that changes to a single line when a notification appears. With Android 13, you’ll be able to turn off the two-line clock design entirely.
The thing to note is that these are very early versions of Android 13 and the final list of features may change even before the developer previews start rolling in, which usually happens shortly after Google I / O. , according to GSMArena.
