This year, Android 13 launches today. And here are our top 10 features. Supported Pixel smartphones can now be updated from Android 12 to Android 13 from today August 16. while devices from Samsung, OPPO, Tecno, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Realme, Asus, vivo, Motorola, and more will be joining later.
Android 13 Features
If you are an Android user who speaks more than one language, Google has added the multi-language feature to Android 13. This means you can assign specific languages to individual apps so you can keep your phone’s system in one language, and each of your apps in a different language.
For example, your phone system could be in the English language, while your WhatsApp could be in French or your Facebook could be in Spanish or even your chrome could be in another language.
Advance “Material You” Look
Last year’s Android 12 introduced the material you design, style, and look. However, Android 13 has built further on it. So unlike Android 12 which limited some of those styles to only Google apps, Android 13 will now allow you to customize non-Google apps to match your phone’s wallpaper theme and colors.
Android 13 will keep you protected and secure. First, apps will no longer have access to your entire media library. Rather you can now select only the specific photos and videos they’ll need to access.
Additionally, in a bit to keep your sensitive information more secure, your clipboard history will be automatically cleared after some time. This means sensitive information like your phone number, passwords, email address, etc, can’t be accessed by others.
And finally, under the security and privacy feature, Android 13 will help you to keep notifications under control and makes sure you only get the alerts you allow. No apps will be allowed to send notifications by default. Except with your permission.
Android now supports Spatial Audio. Soundtracking even when you are turning your head will give you a more immersive listening experience on your Android phone or tablet. Provided you have supported headphones for the feature which allows head tracking.
Bluetooth LE Audio
Bluetooth LE Audio is now supported in Android. Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Audio is a modern Bluetooth standard that allows you to hear audio that’s in better sync with the sound’s source by reducing delay. More so, with Bluetooth LE Audio you can broadcast audio to many devices at the same time. Provided you have the necessary accessories.
Multitasking Got Even Better
Android 13 makes multitasking fun and easy on a tablet. With the newly upgraded taskbar on tablets, you can see all your apps at once which allows you to easily drag and drop any app in your library into split-screen mode.
Copy Content Across Devices
If you have an Android tablet and phone, you can now copy content across both devices. For example, you can copy a URL, picture, text, or video from your Android phone and paste it onto your tablet or vice versa.
Android 13 is now rolling out to support Pixel smartphones. While later this year, Samsung, OPPO, Tecno, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Realme, Asus, vivo, Motorola, and more will be joining. But let us know in the comments section which of the Android 13 features excites you the most.
