Android 13 Launched with Refined Look, Privacy Features & More

In recent years, Google has released new Android versions at all different times. Android 11 was released in September, Android 12 wasn’t made public until October, and now Android 13 will be available as early as August.

As usual, Google’s Pixel devices will receive the update first, followed by other OEMs including Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Motorola, and more “later this year.” Naturally, it also relies on how quickly these businesses release changes globally.

Android 13 only offers a slight improvement over Android 12. The media playback widget’s colors will dynamically vary depending on the music you’re listening to, and Android’s famous Material You theme will now support more icons from third-party apps. Additionally, you may designate various languages to various apps, and bedtime mode now includes a dark mode and wallpaper lowering.

Apps won’t be able to access your whole media gallery when they only need to share one file from it, protecting your privacy. Your private clipboard history, such as contact information, email addresses, or login credentials, will be automatically deleted “after a while.” Apps will now have to get your permission before giving you notifications.

Now formally supported, spatial audio and Bluetooth LE audio will only function with compatible gadgets. This ought to provide improved audio, lower latency Bluetooth connections, and simultaneous audio streaming to numerous devices.

Similar to the new taskbar on the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the new taskbar lets you see all of your programs at a glance and makes it simple to drag and drop apps into split-screen mode. In order to prevent inadvertent touches when using a stylus on an Android tablet, palm rejection functionality will be available.

Text copy and paste functionality between various Android devices on the same account will “soon” be available in Android 13. Your messaging apps will also soon be able to be connected to other devices, allowing you to respond to messages from a laptop or PC.

Android 13 should be made accessible on other devices later this year, as was previously promised, although it is currently only available for Google Pixel phones.

 

Features of Android 13

Here are some of the noteworthy features of Android 13:

Enhanced Material You Interface Design

The previous version let users adjust the wallpaper colors to the Google app icons, but it didn’t function with other software. Now that Android 13 is available, the majority of apps will be able to support the home screen’s wallpaper color and themes.

The renowned Material You theme for Android will now allow more third-party app icons in terms of look. It will contain a media playback widget whose color changes will be dynamic and determined by the music you are playing. Additionally, you can give various apps access to various languages. In addition to wallpaper dimming, bedtime mode now has a dark mode.

Multi-language support

According to Google, consumers of Android smartphones asked for this feature the most. Users may now set certain languages to individual apps in Android 13 so they can retain the phone’s operating system in one language while using other apps in different languages.

Customized bedtime mode

With the new Android 13, the Bedtime mode may be further customized with features like dark themes and dimmed background. When the user is about to go to bed, the screen settings will help the eyes adjust to the darkness; if the user wakes up in the middle of the night to check their phone, they will also help them go back asleep.

Privacy

For messenger and other related apps like multimedia, editing, and others, users currently have to grant access to the whole collection of Photos apps. However, with Android 13, users will be able to pick and choose which photos or videos they want to have access to in the apps.

A phone running Android 13 will also automatically remove clipboard history after a certain amount of time if the user copies sensitive data like an email address, phone number, or login credentials onto the device.

Notifications

Users will be able to manage the number of notification alerts on their phones once they update to Android 13. Instead of being able to send alerts by default after a user downloads an app, the latter will now require the owner’s express permission in order to do so.

Enhanced sound experience

In order to provide a more immersive listening experience on your Android phone or tablet, phones running Android 13 will enable head tracking. Spatial Audio will change the source of the sound to react to how you turn your head. As a result of Android 13’s support for the Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Audio standard, phones will provide a better music-listening experience with less delay. Users will experience less latency and audio that is better synced with the sound source.

Additionally, the phone running Android 13 will come with a redesigned media player that can adjust its appearance and feel according to the music or podcast the user is currently listening to. As you advance through a song while listening to music, for instance, the media player highlights album art and displays a dancing playback bar. Even media viewed in Chrome is compatible.

Improved multitasking features

With Android 13, users can easily copy content from the phone and paste it onto the attached tablet or vice versa. This includes URLs, text, and pictures. Additionally, Android 13 provides a freshly revamped taskbar for tablets, allowing users to quickly drag and drop any app from the library into split-screen mode and see all installed apps at a glance.

Additionally, Android 13 will let users log independent touches from their palm and stylus pen. As a result, there will be fewer unintentional stray markings made by just laying the hand on the tablet screen while writing or drawing.
