Details on Android 13 have already leaked and these new features are expected

Another big feature that is expected to arrive with Android 13 is the users’ control over language usage in the phone. Up to Android 12, users could choose a language under the ‘language and input section’ in the Settings app. Some apps also offer to change language inside their apps, but that is completely developer-dependent, and not every app implements the feature. Beginning Android 13, the feature may come under the user’s control and one may be able to change a particular app’s language in the app information screen. It means you could be able to choose an app to work in a language different from the language implemented throughout your Android device.

Even though many handsets have yet to receive the stable Android 12 update, information about Android 13 has begun to surface online. Major new features that may be coming to the future Android version are shown in leaked screenshots posted by XDA Developers. Under app permissions, Android 13 may add a new “Notifications” permission. When new apps are installed in Android 13 and activated for the first time, they may ask the user for permission to send notifications, just as they do when they ask for permission to access the camera, microphone, location, storage, contacts, phone, and calendar. Apps can send notifications without the user’s permission up to Android 12. The user has the option to block notifications, but the programme does not require their consent to send them.

Highlights

  • Another report by Android Authority suggests the Android 13 may come with Bluetooth LE Audio support. Bluetooth LE Audio is the next generation of Bluetooth audio, which not only reduces power consumption over Bluetooth audio streaming but also makes place for new use cases for Bluetooth devices such as hearing aids and more. Google is expected to announce Android 13, whose internal code name is the dessert Tiramisu, by May 2022 and release stable builds by September 2022. The leaked features may or may not be in the final release depending on whether the developers choose to retain these features or not.
