New features in Android 13 continue to unveil themselves! While the first public beta is gradually approaching, Google has delivered the second beta version restricted to developers. This update lifted the curtain on some long-awaited new features, such as an application power usage monitoring system and a slightly updated drop-down menu.
After downloading the update, Mishaal Rahman, former editor-in-chief of XDA Developers and an Android expert, uncovered a menu for fine-tuning the smartphone’s vibration. “Granular vibration sliders have been introduced to adjust alarm and media vibrations,” he claimed to tweet on Twitter.
“Android 13 will enable you to configure how your smartphone will vibrate according to each occurrence. For example, it is possible to alter the operation according to a telephone call, the arrival of an SMS, an alarm or a simple message”.
In the screenshot unveiled by a developer tester, Google will enable you to modify the strength of the vibrator using a slider. In the case of a call, it will be allowed to engage the vibrator just at first. The ringtone will then take over. This option enables you to prevent unwanted ringtones during dinner or an interview.
It is possible to set loud vibrations in the case of an alarm (alarm clock or reminder) or faint vibrations if it is only a notice. Currently, phones are happy to modify the power of the vibrator according to a call or alert without being able to adapt the vibrations exactly. Android 13 will also enable you to alter the strength of the screen’s haptic feedback with amazing accuracy.
As a reminder, Google will not deliver the final and stable version of Android 13 until September 2022. We hope to uncover a fresh glimpse of the innovations via the first public beta, which will be implemented in the aftermath of the Google conference. May 2022 I/O.
Among the future additions, it came out that Android 13 also includes a specific interface for PCs. There is nothing substantially new about this, given that Android 12L offers a similar UI. But this version is exclusively accessible to smartphones with huge displays, while Android 13 is the regular next release of the OS.
Meanwhile, Google has finished the interface, and the notification and quick settings icons are positioned on the right side of the taskbar. In addition, in this mode, apps automatically launch in freeform window mode.
Perhaps Android 13 will add a feature similar to Samsung DeX and other similar innovations, which enables you to use your smartphone as a form of PC replacement.
