Latest Features of Android-12- Google

The Pixel 6 line of smartphones has finally been introduced by Google. Along with it, Google unveiled its Android 12 mobile operating system, which has the new Material You design. Let us know more about the latest features of Android 12 by Google.

Latest Features of Android-12- Google

Google has announced that Android 12 will start rolling out to Pixel 3 and above devices. According to Google, the freshly launched Android 12 "On your smartphone, you'll get even more personalised, secure, and convenient interactions. It has a completely redesigned and customised user interface, as well as additional privacy safeguards for your safety and more frictionless methods to get directly into your gaming or transition to a different device."

Snow Cone- Android 12

In September 2020, Google stated in an Android Developers blog post that the Android release for 2021 will be called Android 12. The goal is to make things more official, so instead of pushing the sweet treat names it used earlier, Google is embracing a simple numerical approach. The S moniker shows momentarily in the status bar when it initially wakes up, thus we assume Android 12 is also code-named Snow Cone. There are a slew of new features, including a major revamp of the user interface, as well as new personalisation and privacy options. Here are a few of the modifications that have occurred.

Lock Screen Clock 

The new lock screen clock is likely to be the first thing you see when you turn on an Android 12 phone for the first time. A big digital clock takes pride of place in the center of the screen while your phone is free of alerts.

Keys to the PIN code

When you swipe to unlock the phone, you'll see that the PIN code keypad has a new look. The pastel-colored 'buttons' are circular, big, and simple. Material You is in charge of these hues.

Shade adjustments in a flash

You won't see those small circular toggles if you drop down fast settings and notifications from the top of the screen. Instead, considerably bigger rectangular controls, similar to those found in Android 11's Power menu for controlling smart home devices, have been installed. The colour palette is very fascinating in this case. Material You, a Google feature that automatically selects a color depending on the wallpaper you have, has been activated. As a result, if your background is primarily pink/purple, the quick settings shade will be pink/purple as well. Alternatively, if your wallpaper is green, use that colour. And so forth - everything is customisable.

Enhancements to the Screenshots

Take a screenshot, and if the page is longer than the one you've recorded, you may take more. Scroll capture is included in Android 12. You may now type text on your screenshots in a variety of font colours by going to the edit/markup option. As a side note, screenshot thumbnails may now be easily dismissed by swiping them off the screen.


Notifications have also received some changes in terms of design. Notification windows have altered in appearance, and they are now automatically grouped by app or split if they are not conversational. Also, instead of needing to swipe on the notice to snooze it, there's a new simple snooze option that you can just press. You may then snooze particular notifications for a specified period of time.

Edit a Sheet Picture 
When you go to share an image file, there's a new 'Edit' option that enables you to mark up photos before passing them on, similar to how you can mark up screenshots above. 
Dashboard- Personal Data Protection
The Privacy Dashboard is one of the key new official modifications. It'll make it simple to check which applications have accessed particular privileges. Whether it's your camera and microphone, or your location. Furthermore, you may choose to provide an app merely an estimated location rather than a specific position when you initially start it and it requests access to your location.
In the fast shade menu, Android 12 has also included quick on/off toggles that deactivate the microphone, location, and camera so that no one can use them. 
Material You- Theme and Customisation
Theming is one of the most important new features in Android 12. You may opt to have the accent and background colours of your phone determined by the colours of your wallpaper in the customisation window. It also lets you turn on a "themed icons" feature, which turns your program icons into color-coordinated versions - but this only appears to work with Google applications.T he method allows you to select a wallpaper and then use the wallpaper's theme colours, or you may select a "basic" complementary colour instead.
UI Media Player
The new media control widget, which displays in the drop-down menu while music is playing, is one of the most noticeable UI improvements. It has been expanded to almost the whole width of the screen, and the layout has been changed to bring the controls closer to the center of the screen. When activated, it also takes up more space on the Lock Screen.
App Shortcuts
The new pop-up shortcut menu that displays when you press and hold an app icon is another minor change to the UI.
Wifi- ''Nearby''
This is a potentially useful feature that allows you to rapidly share the details of your WiFi network with individuals in the same room as you. So, although you could previously share your Wi-Fi using a QR code scanner, Android 12 now has a 'Nearby' option below that.
Widgets have been entirely updated to provide a more customisable window that blends in with the rest of the rounded, pleasant interface.
Mode for One-Handed Use
There's a new one-handed mode you may use now. It initially appeared in the second developer preview, and it may make using larger-screen phones much easier in the future.
PiP Addition
PiP is an Android feature that allows you to have a tiny floating video playing on-screen even when you aren't in the video app. The new controls allow you to increase the size of the window without becoming full screen.
Google Pixel- Quick Tap Gesture.
For Pixel phones running Android 12, there's a double-tap gesture. When enabled, you can capture a screenshot by double-tapping the back of your phone, but you can also configure it to do other things. It can also be set up to start Google Assistant, pause/resume media playing, open the notification shade, and access the recent apps view, among other things.
