The best feature of the new Android 12 update | Revadvert
The new home screen
The biggest change in the Android P update is on the home screen. With this feature, you will see a new wallpaper and the launcher theme itself. What are those? Well, in the old Android update, the home screen’s wallpaper would change based on what weather is going on, or what date is being shown on the weather app. And then you’ll have the Home button which was hidden behind a white menu bar, and most people didn’t know the button existed and thought the phone was locked. This is now gone from the new home screen, as it’s hidden on the home screen and it can be brought up at any time via a gesture.
More control over notifications
A whole new UI experience
Voice input and multiple-window mode

Google has launched the next-gen Android, called Android 12 Developer Preview and it is available for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL devices. It has taken almost two years to get Android updates up to date, but the dev preview comes with several new features that seem promising. If you are an avid Android user, it is always good to keep in touch with the latest updates, and you can do that with the help of a mobile app called ‘Android Police’.
This is one of the most popular Android apps and this time around, it has released a new changelog for the upcoming Android version, Android Oreo Developer Preview 3. This way, you can follow all the updates related to the new version.
After updating to the new Android 12, you’ll be taken to a personalized feed of notifications, which is accessible from the notifications shade.
By swiping from right to left, you’ll get your notification icons on your home screen, along with the text messages that are waiting to be read.
Subsection 2: App Permissions
In Android 12, you can revoke access to apps in your settings, rather than individually going through each app. Apps can be uninstalled from the Settings app, so you can get rid of any app you no longer use.
As a result of this change, you won’t have to decide which app is on and which app is off.
Apps can be uninstalled from the Settings app, so you can get rid of any app you no longer use.
Gesture-based navigation and Doze on the Go
Battery Saver Mode
In Android 9 Pie, Google launched several cool features like the newly added gesture-based navigation, new Doze on the Go, Picture-in-Picture Mode, and adaptive battery. The last one being a very useful feature if we have to ask what it is all about.
Well, this one is said to improve battery life by reducing the impact of heavy apps on the device’s battery life. The Android update brings its own battery saver algorithm and a Doze mode which makes sure that the user gets a well-balanced battery experience.
On top of all these Android 12 updates brings back gesture navigation on the Pixel 3 series and the Essential phone.
One of the latest features to hit the Android phones is that of Smart Reply and how it will help your device as well as the user to be more productive and faster. Smart Reply allows users to respond to certain texts or emails with the number of auto-responses that are available. Smart Reply not only helps to reply to texts but also emails that are sent to you via Gmail. As the first popular emoji keyboard Android, Google had done quite a few things for smartphones with the Android OS, which made using the smartphone a great experience, even more. The Smart Reply functionality now has an extension that works within the Gmail App. Now users are able to use the messaging app with the most popular email app available in the market.
1. Adaptive Battery This is the feature of the new Android P update which makes battery life more efficient for Android devices. According to Google’s new claims, the adaptive battery technology uses machine learning algorithms to adapt to usage patterns of the user. The adaptive battery reduces user impact during the peak usage hours.
2. Autoexposure Priority This feature was first introduced by Apple in the last year. According to Apple’s first claims, Autoexposure Priority is a two-factor smart- HDR technology that dynamically adjusts the Auto-Exposure priority to optimise exposure while shooting photos in low-light conditions.

Do Not Disturb: The new improved Do Not Disturb feature lets you set time limits for notifications and audio. Do Not Disturb has also got a new Do Not Disturb During Bedtime mode. The new Do Not Disturb also includes a ‘Routines’ feature, which helps you to accomplish multiple tasks such as turning on Do Not Disturb at set time or choosing to automatically turn on Do Not Disturb on a certain schedule.
Adaptive Battery: An industry first, Adaptive Battery is designed to improve app usage. This feature intelligently figures out how long the battery will last based on the amount of active tasks, the speed of processor and quality of battery charge. This should increase your battery life and make sure you can make all your phone calls, send all your WhatsApp messages, etc.
Focusing solely on raw performance, there’s not much new to write about in the Pixel 3’s software experience compared to its predecessors, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. It has many of the same features as the Pixel 2, which means that many people who are switching from a Pixel 2 will still be familiar with everything that it offers. It’s also safe to say that there won’t be a whole lot of people who are upgrading from a Pixel 2 to a Pixel 3.
But that doesn’t mean that the Pixel 3 isn’t worth it. On the contrary, it’s actually one of the best Android smartphones on the market. And even if you’re not upgrading from a Pixel, you might still want to consider buying it if you’re on the hunt for a premium device with pretty good specs and a great camera.
