See twelve of them interesting new possibilities available on Android 12:
1. Customize the screen to any wallpaper
When you change your wallpaper, the entire screen of Android 12 changes to match the colors of the new wallpaper, thanks to advanced color rendering algorithms. Easily customize the look and feel of your entire phone, including the screen when locked, notifications, settings, widgets, and even apps. This new dynamic color change is first available on Pixel, but will soon be available in more device and phone manufacturers.
2. New Widgets
New redesigned widgets that are more dynamic and customizable. By the end of this month, you will be able to try over a dozen brand new or updated widgets from your favorite Google Apps, right on your home screen.
3. New viewing capabilities
A new magnifying glass lets you zoom in on a portion of your screen while maintaining the rest of the screen environment. Ultra-low screen brightness is ideal for night navigation or other situations when even the lowest brightness setting is too bright. You can even adjust the text in bold or grayscale colors for easier reading.
4. Additional security on microphone and camera
You can now see when an app is using your microphone or camera, thanks to a new indicator in your phone status bar. And if you do not want any application to have access to the microphone or camera, you can turn off these sensors completely using two new switches in Quick Settings. Just turn the switch.
5. Keep your exact location private
Android 12 lets you access your apps to see your location, but lets you choose exactly what they will see, your exact location, or your approximate location.
6. Check your privacy rights at a glance
A new privacy control panel gives you a clear and complete picture of when applications have access to your site, camera or microphone in the last 24 hours. If you see anything strange, you can manage the permissions directly from the control panel.
7. New rights in Blutooth
Your cordless headphones, of course, need to be connected to your phone, but they probably do not need to know where you are. New Bluetooth permissions on Android 12 allow bundled apps to connect to devices such as watches or headphones without having to access your location information.
8. Restore permissions to rarely used applications
Do you have applications that you have not used for a long time or have forgotten? Unused application permissions are restored to default levels, and cached files are removed to free up space on your device.
9. Capture all content on the page in one screenshot.
Just because your screen does not fit the entire page does not mean that a screenshot should be half full. New scrolling screenshots will allow you to capture the entire contents of a page in a single image.
10. Play games while still receiving them
Spend more time playing and less time waiting for game downloads. On Android 12, selected games will allow you to play while downloading, so you can go directly to the game without having to wait for the full download to complete.
11. Sharing Wi-Fi credentials becomes much easier.
You do not need to remember the password of a Wi-Fi or have your friend type an intricate character combination to connect to your Wi-Fi. With Nearby Share, just open the Wi-Fi settings, select the network you want and click "Share".
12. Easy data transfer to a new phone
Android 12 makes it easy to transfer all your basic data, such as photos, videos, messages to a new Android phone. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection to transfer from your old phone or your phone cable if you are switching from iPhone.
