As phone makers prepare to offer Android 12 skins for compatible phones, Google is already making progress on its upcoming Android 13 operating system, dubbed Tiramisu. Thanks to several screenshots obtained by XDA Developers, we now have our first look at Google’s future version of Android. This would include Android’s economy of resources, notification runtime permissions, per-app language options, and the lock screen clock layout.
A first look at the features of Android 13 Tiramisu:
While everyone is waiting to experience Android 12 and some have started creating custom ROMs and themes, Google is busy creating the next edition of Android: Android 13. It is currently marketed as Tiramisu, with the first leaks arriving.
Notifications runtime permission
Because alerts can be quite annoying at times, Android 13 allows users to permanently disable them. While some chat apps have a snooze button, some may not, so the user must go through the program information to completely disable the alerts option. This is now coming to light.
Android’s Resource Economy (TARE)
According to the XDA report, Google plans to launch Android 13 with a new feature called Android Resource Saver (TARE). This feature “rewards” applications in the form of a currency known as Android Resource Credits based on the amount of battery power they consume. These credits can be used later as payment of different fees for applications. It is claimed to work fine through Alarm Manager and Job Scheduler policies. Google’s goal with this feature is to emphasize the power management of smartphones.
Designs for lock screen clocks
Lastly, the Android 13 images suggest that Google intends to provide a new option in Android 13 to disable the two-line lock screen clock arrangement. The company added a two-line design to the screen lock clock with the new Android 12 update, which switches to a single-line pattern when alerts are received.
That’s all we know for now about Google’s upcoming Android 13 operating system. Android 13 is likely to be unveiled during Google’s upcoming I / O conference, which is supposed to take place in May.
