At it’s annual developer conference, Google released the second beta of Android 13 and gives us a glimpse at the upcoming features of the next major Android OS update. Android as an operating system keeps getting better. Last year Android 12 was a major overhaul of the Android since Android 6.0. This year Android 13 is not a major update as compared to last year but still, it brings some exciting features and under the hood improvements.
Like every Android update, the main focus here is also on the security and privacy of users’ data and information. Google did upgrade it’s security with the launch of Android 12 last year, but with Android 13 it is bringing more security-related features for users. Like now the users have more control over the data and information they share with other third-party apps. Now, users have to grant separate permission for each data type to use the storage. Also, users can choose which app can use specific photos, meaning you can restrict certain apps from accessing your private photos.
The update also brings more transparency to app permission as apps now can not access anything without users’ permission. The operating system will also automatically delete contents stored on the clipboard after some time so that other apps can’t access data on the clipboard.
The overall user interface is very similar to its predecessor as the Material You theme is present here as well. Google introduced more color options and this time third-party apps can also be themed like the system apps. On the notification shade, the music player notification can now adapt visuals according to the music that is currently playing.
Currently, Google released Beta 2 of Android 13 for all supported pixels devices. The stable version will be released later this year along with Google Pixel 7 series.
