What Is The Design Of Android 12?

Being the most superficial layer, it is the first thing we usually look at, which is why it becomes the main novelties, and much more special for those who are not used to customization layers. In this case we go from Material Design to Material You, the appearance of this has larger and smoother elements.

For the physical aspect we will also see new notification bubbles and also with new animations. Windows, widgets and also menu bars have cosmetic changes around color and shading. For example, if we talk about the dark mode, we will realize that this mode is a little lighter and also comes the possibility of extracting the color that predominates in the wallpaper and being able to adapt it to the menus.

We will also notice changes in the transitions and styles of very modern Widgets.

Material You, the new customization layer brought us a lot of customization in the icons, larger environment elements and with more space between them, but what stands out the most is the rounding and you will see modified transitions. You'll see shortcuts in the menu that go to Google Pay.

For Android 12, this year's Easter Egg is all about a new design language.

Another of the changes that we will see that affects the design layer is that in the settings menu, you will see a rather tiny change in the search bar, but it is still interesting: it turns out that it is a bubble that does not occupy the entire width of the screen and it is not rectangular either. And if we go to the Apps grid option, we will see that there is a new option to change our apps grid to 4 × 5.

And if we look at the Media Playback Widget, we'll see that it's wider on both the lock screen and the home screen. We will also find a pop-up menu of shortcuts or quick access when clicking on an application.

What are the main novelties of Android 12?

Now that we have a small introduction to some of the updates that Android 12 brings us, we go a little deeper to see more news of this new update of this operating system.

New Interactions

Now we will see new floating clouds where we can find new interactions such as a floating menu for video games, or for social networks like TikTok. Natively you will find in Android 12 the new cloud of interactions for Video Games, a cloud that you can deploy to find different configuration options within the game.

App Pairs is another of the new updates that is here to stay. This application allows us to pin 2 applications so that they open at the same time and also share space, in this way you will not have to activate the shared screen every time you do this.

One of the new additions that is a bit late for these days, but that has finally arrived is navigation through gestures, in this way you will be able to move between applications with fewer slides and you will also be able to handle your Smartphone with one hand because it adds the new mode to one hand.

You no longer have to say "Ok Google" to activate the Google assistant, you can also do it by pressing and holding the power button.

Another cool feature that tech lovers are sure to love is that you can now have a digital key to unlock your car. To be able to use it, you need a device that has Ultra Wideband technology, so we can open our car with the cell phone as if it were with NFC.

If you have the Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy with Android 12 you will see that this function comes to you first than the rest. For cars, the first manufacturer that will have this function will be BMW, then we continue with brands such as GM, Ford and Honda.

Privacy Panel Update and Performance Improvement

Another of the great updates because it helps us to protect our privacy much more, since, through a new menu, you will be able to see the applications that have accessed your camera, the microphone or the rest of your cell phone in general, so you can have much easier access to all this information that is not normally indicated with complete clarity.

In this way you can protect yourself from applications that you do not want to use these permissions constantly, you can have switches that block those accesses, and if we are sharing our location with applications we can request that this be an approximate location and not precise.

A little more internally we see the new "Private Compute Core" that is incorporated for this update. This is a space that is used for Android partitions but is mainly used to store sensitive data such as passwords or biometric data such as your fingerprint. This is a special space for artificial intelligence.

It is ensured that this new update of the operating system is more efficient since it has a lower CPU consumption, with 22% less; it also reduces the use of the most important nuclei of the system by 15%. But of course, this performance will vary depending on the customization layers of each of the manufacturers.

New Image Formats And Audio Improvements

For this new version we will find support for the HEVC video format. But not only that, we will also be able to see new formats such as AV1 or AVIF, in this way we will be able to have a better compression of images and have less losses in reference to JPG.

For audio we find support for spatial audio, for more than 24 audio channels and also for the MPEG-H codec

More News We Are Waiting To See

In fact, I have already told you enough news that this operating system brings us, pBut this does not mean that more updates and novelties can be added within this update and in this way this update matures, as for example Google is already anticipating another application that is another application store.

On a more internal level, we would like to see other functions such as saving space and also being able to hibernate applications automatically.

And to finish this part of news, we see that Android has a new way to restrict the network, basically a firewall that restricts applications that need to access the network from doing so without user authorization.

Android 12 Privacy

Of course, the idea is not to force you to shield your cell phone as much as possible, since it will not be beneficial for you either because many functions of your cell phone that are important for its proper functioning can be lost.

Android 12, like each of the new updates, comes with greater security to protect you from cyber theft.

Master Android 12 Notifications Perfectly

That's right, you can customize your notifications to the maximum, so that it is shown as you want and that notifications that you do not want are not issued, on the contrary, only those notifications that are important to you are shown and you will see the different options that you da by interacting with these notifications.

You will find a great list of possibilities when configuring your notifications.

Use Your Android As A Portable Battery

Through reverse charging you can charge other devices using your cell phone's battery, but of course, this is a function of certain specific devices. This function is activated directly by connecting your cell phone to another cell phone, an option will immediately appear on the screen that allows you to do the reverse charge and thus share the battery between devices.

But it will not only work for you to charge other cell phones, you can use it to charge your own accessories, such as your headphones, your watch, etc. What has not yet been improved is reverse charging via wireless, there is still time to improve our technology so that this can work properly.

It is also important that you keep in mind that both devices must be compatible with this type of charging, normally it only happens with top-of-the-range cell phones since it is a new technology and a bit expensive to manufacture, but surely in a few years or less. this will be a feature that is normalized across all devices.

Learn How To Measure Your Battery Cycles

Cycles is the number of times your cell phone has reached its limit and goes back down, each battery has a limited number of cycles and this will gradually wear out your battery so you will see that over time it has less and less capacity, it really is something inevitable but we can delay.

If you want to know how many cycles your battery has, I recommend you download an application that measures these cycles, this data can be obtained with AccuBatterý, Battery Life, Ampere or Kaspersky.

These applications will tell you how many cycles your battery has and you will see that when you reach an average between 300 to 500 cycles, your battery will begin to wear out, which is why it is recommended to change the battery every 2 years or so, change your cell phone on an average of every 2 years.

How Can You Measure Your Heart Rate With Android?

There are already many Smartphones today that will allow you to measure your heart rate with the Google Fit application. What Google does to measure your heart rate is to tell you to put your finger on the camera and with the variations of movement, it will tell you your heart rate.

Not only that, it also gives you a result that is quite close to your respiratory rate, it also does it with the camera, but this time the front camera, analyzing the movement of your chest, also the movements that you can make with your face and with your nose. It is not an application available for all devices, but the vast majority can already do it.
