Although the update to Android 11 is still being released by many brands, Google is already preparing the next version of its mobile operating system. Very little is known yet, but there are new features that appear to be seen in the code.
It was precisely one of these new features that has now appeared, and that seems to give a new life to Android 12. This version looks like it will have the ability to hibernate apps and thus save space on the smartphone.
A new feature of Android 12 has emerged
Google has managed, over the years, to improve Android at key points. These improvements arrive with each new version, trying to make this system simpler to manage. At the same time, it wants to be simpler to update, something that has not yet fully achieved.
A novelty was discovery now in the code for the next version of this system, showing that this work has already started. Android 12 is already being prepared and can soon be tested by everyone who has a Pixel smartphone.
Hibernate apps to gain space
The discovery made revealed that soon Google’s mobile system will be able to pause apps and gain useful space on the smartphone. This indication appears in the AOSP code (Android Open Source Project) and clearly gives an idea of its usefulness.
This will be a mode that is active in apps that are no longer used on Android and that can hibernate without impact to the user. This state, in which they are neither used nor have to be active, can then be used to compress them and thus free up space.
Google has not yet revealed much about this improvement
It is not clear how this hibernation will be decided and what the conditions are for this to happen. Google will continue to develop this feature and will likely appear on Android 12.
The Developer Preview for this version may not be long in coming. At that time you will know many more news about what you will bring. This hibernate is smart and gives users extra space on their smartphones, simply by compressing the apk and app files.
