Google finally released the latest version of Android 13 on Monday (15). The big update arrives in its purest version on Pixel smartphones, packed with important news and additions that freshen up the routine with a cell phone, along with valuable tweaks to important functions of the operating system.
The long testing period ended a little earlier than expected, and from there, many more features can be expected, however, without being sure that they will actually be released with Android 13. Now, with the final version available, you can decide exactly which ideas you decided Google moved ahead with it and what ended up lagging behind during development.
Main news for Android 13
13. New media player
One of the most interesting new features in Android 13 is the new native media player. The functionality is located in the usual place, the Quick Settings section, but it is larger and more elegant, contains more information on the spot and changes its appearance depending on the application and the content being played (album or video, for example).
12. Lots of dynamic colors
The material you introduced in Android 12 also brings the look of Android 13 to life. The color extraction system in the new OS is more powerful and is capable of producing up to 16 different theme options from the background panel. Additionally, there are more solid color options to choose from.
Application icons can also be redesigned according to the chosen theme. Of course, this depends on the implementation of the developer responsible for the program, so not all icons will be customizable at will.
11. Active applications indicator
Android 13 will make it more obvious when there are apps running in the background. In the quick settings section, the system will tell you how many applications are currently active and how long they remain in this state. Next to it, there are “Stop” buttons that cut the app to save memory, processing, and battery.
10. Specific languages for each app
Are you fluent in more than one language, or would you like to practice a foreign language on a mobile app? In Android 13, each program can have a different language. Thus, the user can adjust the preferences as he wants, whether to keep practice updated or to avoid problematic translations.
In the new Android 13, the user will be able to set the “Bedtime” mode. The solution dims the wallpaper, lowers screen brightness and activates Android’s dark mode to return the color palette to a default that is less intense for the eyes.
8. Choose only one photo
It is now no longer necessary to grant access to all your files when using an app. When you need a file, whether to create a personal profile or share media, choose exactly which photo or video you want to make available to the app.
7. Special clipboard
Sometimes a cell phone case is a forgotten area that transfers a lot of sensitive data like photos, videos, and even passwords. In Android 13, the system will be able to automatically clear the partition history after one hour.
6. Only required notifications
When installing a new app, it must ask the user for permission to issue notifications and will not have this right by default. This change in preference, while simple, can help you get rid of unnecessary warnings.
5. Taskbar for foldable tablets and tablets
What was good in Android 12L is still there in Android 13 (now there are no additional versions). Devices with large screens (tablets and foldables) have increased their usability with the system’s well-known “taskbar”, which is now improved in gestures that facilitate multitasking.
4. Bluetooth Low Energy (LE)
Support for Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) will give Android 13 phones lower latency in streaming content and enable more accurate audio synchronization. In addition, the technology will also provide improved quality and the ability to stream to multiple devices simultaneously.
3. Support spatial audio
When accompanied by compatible headphones, your phone can now activate spatial audio to enhance immersion while listening to music. The tool tracks the movement of your head to redirect the audio source and simulate as if you were in the middle of a studio.
2. Approximate share
Android 13 supports sending apps to Chromebooks. The function allows you to “reverse” the programs of the cell phone on the computer, allowing you to read and respond to messages from your notebook. Native support includes apps like Google Messages, WhatsApp, and Signal.
1. Remote clipboard
In a future update, Android 13 will also support synced clipboard between devices. The content saved on the cell phone (URL, image, text or video) can be pasted on the tablet and vice versa.
