What we know about Android 13 “Tiramisu” | Technology

This article first appeared on https://www.gearrice.com/update/what-we-know-about-android-13-tiramisu-technology/

Although it is still early to ensure one hundred percent that everything we suspect or think we know right now will be managed in Android 13, there are several features that seem to be integrated and that we already know.

It seems that version 13 of Google’s operating system will coincide with a good number of new features as has been the latest version that the great G has released, that is, Android 12.

Obviously, we have no idea when Android 13 will be released, but based on previous versions everything seems to indicate that it will be in the fourth quarter of 2022, that is, between October 1 and December 31, the time in which it should be released. the Pixel 7, replacement for the current Pixel 6.

We won’t really know exactly what Android 13 will be until the developer preview arrives, something Google released in February 2021 for Android 12, so we assume it won’t be long for the new operating system.

Next, Google will launch the Beta versions, which almost always coincide with the I/O in May, approaching the end of the year and launching the definitive version that all users will be able to enjoy.

Although as you can see there is still a long way to go to receive it, it is true that there are certain rumors or functions that Google is known to be testing, which could be part of Android 13. Let’s see what they are.

Choose the language by application

Looks like Google is working on a new feature Panligual callwhich consists of modifying the language in each application, instead of doing it in the whole system as it currently happens.

There are applications such as Google Maps that offer their own language settings, although it is one of the few that currently exist. With Panligual you can access the phone configuration and get change the app language you want as long as they use the Android 12 translation API.

The fragmentation of the Android ecosystem: the most popular version is 10, although Android 12 has already been released

Less annoying notifications

It is clear that the notifications that appear on our Android smartphone can be really annoyingappear when it least suits us and on top of all that, there are times when limiting their use or even making them disappear is an impossible task.

Well, Google has already made some improvements in Android 11 and 12 in this regard, although falling short in this regard.

With the arrival of Android 13 they intend to give the final solution with a new runtime permission (Post Notifications) which could make notifications subscribe at different times.

Unfortunately, this is something that is not entirely clear, since the only thing that is known is that the company is testing something called Post Notications, which many interpret as something like that.

Bluetooth LE

Something that has been in demand for a long time is that Google once and for all incorporate the Bluetooth LE Audio in the system.

With this measure, which seems to take Android 13, the energy efficiency of everything we use via Bluetooth will be greater, making both the phone’s battery and that of any connected device last longer.

But in addition, the Bluetooth LE Audio protocol unlocks the ability to stream audio to multiple devices simultaneouslyimproves performance, and increases wireless range, among other things.

Battery management

If there is something that Google has taken great care of in all the latest versions of both Android and its own terminals, it is the battery managementto try to make it more efficient.

In both Android 10, 11 and 12, they have implemented quite a few tools to better manage the battery, although it seems that in Android 13 they are going to change to a new way.

will bear the name TARE (The Android Resource Economy) and it will basically be a token system. That is, each application will have a number of these tokens to spend at the time the battery is low, which will mean that if an app spends all of them, it will not be able to waste system resources, something that will not affect those applications that are in progress.

Apparently, TARE will operate through JobScheduler and AlarmManager, although it would not be surprising if in the end this system does not become effective, since it is tremendously complex, something that may force the big G to stop the project for now.

Mean TTT

Another of the faculties that Android 13 seems to incorporate is its own interface for Average TTT (Average Tap-to-Transfer)that is, a tool that can allow an Android user to transfer music and other media between devices just by touching them, in the style of the HomePod Mini.

This could be used by Google to achieve media transfer between smartphones and smart speakers, without even knowing if it will do it by NFC or UWB.

What else will be new?

There will also be a series of changes that we can consider as minor, although some very showy, such as a slight change in the lock screen and navigation barwhere it looks like they could include a QR code scanning tool.

Something that also changes is the lock screen clocksince it will be able to change from a double to a simple digital one when there are many notifications on the screen.

Google is going to solve a problem that has been repeating itself for a long time and that finally seems to have been realized. Going to allow disable Google Assistant shortcut when we press the home button continuously (navigation bar).

This is excellent news for all those who continue to navigate using the three classic buttons at the bottom of the screen.

This is what we know and suspect that the next Google operating system will be able to incorporate as new in its version 13 “Tiramisu”. As we have more information we will inform you.

What is clear is that if everything we have talked about is true, Android 13 could be one of the versions with the most changes, some significant, it can make in recent years.
