Google releases second Android 13 beta with an emphasis on user privacy


Google has released the second beta of its Android 13 operating system that brings a slew of new features and user controls, along with updates to privacy and security.

At its Google I/O developer conference, the company said that in Android 13, “we’re giving you more control over what personal information you share and what files your apps can access.” There is more detailed control”.

In Android 13, apps need to get your permission before they can send you notifications.

“Plus, we’re reducing the number of apps that require your location. For example, you will no longer need to location apps to enable Wi-Fi scanning,” says Tristan Upstill, VP of Engineering, Android said.

Now, Android will automatically delete your clipboard history after a short period, so apps are already blocked from seeing the old copied information.

“Later this year, we will introduce an integrated security and privacy settings page in Android 13 that puts all of your device’s data privacy and security front and center,” the company said.

With Android 13, the company is going to customize the look and feel of the phone with pre-made color variants.

Android 13 extends the color theme of your app icons beyond Google apps.

“Starting with Pixel devices, you’ll be able to turn on the ‘Themed icons’ toggle in your settings so that all supported apps can match your phone’s colors in a minimalist, modern and consistent way,” Google said.

Android 13 also introduces better multi-tasking capabilities for the tablet.

With the updated taskbar, you can easily switch your single tablet view to split screen. Simply drag and drop any other app in your app library onto your screen and you’ll be able to easily do two or more things at once.
