New Android 13 Features You Need To Use

The major Android update 2022 is the thirteenth iteration of the mobile operating system and it’s now in the wild. It first made its way to Google’s own Pixel phones, before making its way to mobile phones from the likes of Samsung, OnePlus, Motorola, Nokia, and others.

Just like iOS, Android is now mature and refined enough that it doesn’t need a full refresh every 12 months, so we’re used to not having a lot of huge changes every year.

However, there are improvements and upgrades in Android 13 that are worth talking about. Here are the things you should check once it reaches your phone.

1. Auto personalization icons

Android 12 has made great strides in how to design the appearance of the interface with backgrounds and colors. Now, Android 13 is based on this with auto-customization icons, which means that app icons on the home screen will automatically change their color to match the background.

But there are some caveats. For now at least, icons with auto themes are only available on Pixel devices, and app developers need to provide compatible icons for these to work. Most Google apps, for example, have been updated, but it may take a while for your favorite app makers to catch up.

2. New notification permissions

This is a relatively small change, but it could potentially make a big difference. Android 12 introduced a system that forces apps to request permission to access your phone’s camera and location, for example, the first time they ask for it.

In Android 13, this protocol has been extended to include notifications. Instead of the app simply sending you alerts — forcing you to either accept them or search the settings page to turn them off — you’ll see a notification permission request. It’s up to the developer the moment this request appears, but it’s usually too soon.

As before, you can change the application settings (including notifications and other permissions), by going to Settings. tap on apps And the View all appsthen choose an app and select Permissions.

3. Custom vibrations

If you prefer atmospheric alerts rather than sparking a ruckus, you’ll be glad to hear that Android 13 has added some fine-grained control over how these vibrations work.

Essentially, you can now choose different vibration levels for calls, alarms, and other notifications, as well as touch feedback. You can also make incoming calls vibrate your phone first, before gradually adding an audible sound.

To find all these new options from Settings in Android, tap sound and vibrationand then Vibrations and touches. Each option has a slider, so you can carefully control the vibrations in a completely accurate way.

4. Faster access to the QR code scanner

With this pandemic, QR codes have grown in popularity as a way to access and present information without having to touch anything.

Android has been reading QR codes for a long time, but Android 13 makes accessing a QR code reader a bit easier. Open the quick settings by swiping two fingers from the top of the screen, then tap the pen icon (bottom right) to make changes, and you’ll see that there Scan QR Code The option you can drag to the quick settings panel.

Bonus tip: Another Android 13 tile you can add to the Quick Settings panel, in the same way, is One-handed mode. It slides down certain elements of the user interface so that they are easy to access with your thumb.

5. Safer Image Access

Android and iOS borrow from each other all the time. In this case, Google tweaked an idea from Apple and now allows users to restrict apps’ access to their phone’s photos. It’s not all or nothing anymore – now, apps will only be able to access the photos and videos you select, not your entire gallery

You will only see the change when the app needs access to your photos and videos. You will notice a new appearance picker that will enable you to select one or more images or clips, starting with the most recent.

The redesigned interface also allows you to select specific albums from your phone gallery and any connected cloud storage.

One of the most obvious upgrades you’ll see on Android 13, is the redesigned media player widget. It appears under Quick Settings and on the lock screen when playing media.

Two of the visual changes you’ll notice are that the play button is larger and moved to the right, and the progress bar now has a zigzag effect on it when playing a podcast, video, audiobook, or song.

As before, the background of the media player widget is covered with any available artwork from the application in question (album art, for example). In the upper-right corner of the widget, you can see where your media is playing, whether that’s your phone’s speaker or a connected device, like a Chromecast.

7. Best audio output selection

Another important small change comes in the way Android 13 has revamped the audio output selection screen. This is useful if you’re playing audio from your phone on Bluetooth speakers or other streaming devices, for example.

With the media playing, head over to Settings and choose sound and vibrationthen press game… Link below media size. The link must include the name of the application that is running.

Not only does the redesigned pop-up dialog make it easy to switch between outputs – from wireless headphones to car stereos – it also lets you adjust relative volume levels.
