Google Android 13 Tracker: Get Live Updates on Android 13 Tiramisu

A lot of guesswork has happened since Android 12 was launched last year. Android enthusiasts are speculating on what the next Android version will bring to the table. On top of that, in the first quarter of 2022, Google shared some info where we can see it might release a separate Android 12 (L) version for foldable phones and devices with larger displays.

But as time passes, users are becoming more eager to know the new features and functions that will come with the next big version of the OS, Android 13. Already a lot of leaks and rumors are being circulated on the web. While most of the talks are just hoaxes, few of them must come out true. Android 13 is said to be launched by Google in 2023.

Flashlight brightness adjustment toggle

According to a blog post by Esper, Google might come up with this cool feature in Android 13 that will let users control the flashlight’s brightness on their phone. However, this will not be much used for phones with dimmer flashlights. But if you have a phone with a potent flashlight, you can reduce the brightness or adjust it according to your use case using the adjustment feature. However, a similar function is already available on Samsung Galaxy phones.

XDA-Developers revealed four new features.

Through a report by XDA-Developers, we learned that Android 13 Tiramisu would come with four new features. These features were found on an early build:

1. App Languages

This feature will allow users to set different languages for different apps rather than changing the language throughout the Android system.

2. Runtime Permission for Notifications

This feature will be handy for a lot of non-tech users. Now, I see many people face this issue of getting bombarded with notifications from different apps installed on their devices. Even though there is an option to turn off notifications from specific apps, as most users are unaware, the unwanted messages disturb them daily.

But this new feature in Android 13 will ask users whether they want to give an app permission to show notifications. It will be similar to what we see now for the camera, location, storage, etc. There might also be a feature to allow only certain notifications from an app rather than being bombarded with countless notifications from a single app. Users will be able to choose which types of notifications they want to get from a specific app.

3. TARE: The Android Resource Economy

This is a very intricate feature that will “award” apps based on battery level. The apps can then use these “awards” as a currency to perform tasks. This is introduced to let the apps perform specific tasks based on how important they are for the users keeping the battery level in mind. So, when the battery level is deficient, only essential tasks can be performed by the apps that users need the most.

4. Lock Screen Clock Layout

This new feature will let users keep the lock screen clock in the same place even when the notifications arrive. Because now, when you receive a message, the lock screen clock changes its appearance and moves to the top, and its size decreases. This might cause difficulty in seeing the time when you aren’t bothered about the notifications or outdoors in bright daylight. With this new feature, you can set the lock screen clock in the same state even when a notification arrives so the watch will remain visible and prominent to make it easier for the user to see it outdoors.

Disable Phantom Processes

An XDA-Developers report said that Google might introduce a toggle to disable the Background app limitations (Phantom Processes) on the new Android 13 Tiramisu. But later, on December 15, 2021, the report was updated, and the feature is said to make its way into Android 12L rather than Android 13.
