If you’re the kind of Android user who double-checks every app permission, keeps yourself informed of every new feature, and is actually interested in app-sharing screen, then read this detailed explanation of the changes you can expect in Android 13 later that year. It’s a thorough and organized changelog – with a table of contents – of developer preview 2 of the unreleased Android 13 and reads as if it’s an official internal guide to all the changes.
This thoroughly documented changelog of Android 13 is written by none other than before XDA developers editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman – who last year revealed the technical reason why Microsoft Teams and Android 12 caused an unsuccessful emergency call. You can even get a preview of future products that Google seems to be working on – like a rumored Nest Hub and other tablets suggested by a USB API change and code for common “hub mode” features to let multiple people use apps on the same device.
USB HAL is updated to 2.0 and adds a limitPowerTransfer system API and support for USB audio docks. Yet another change was aimed at improving the docked tablet experience amid rumors that 2022 Nest Hub is moving to that form factor.https: //t.co/IJvYMscAH8
