The second public beta of Android 12 has been released. At least three new features have appeared


Google has released the second public beta of Android 12. It finally brings the privacy controls announced at I / O, including the Privacy Dashboard.

The privacy dashboard displays whether apps are using smartphone sensors such as a camera, microphone, or GPS. It shows a chart at the top showing all the times they were used in the last 24 hours. You can also view a history of sensor activity and ask apps to explain why they need your data.

A small dot appears in the status bar to indicate that one of the sensors is being used by an application. The system will also offer to disable them programmatically, and if the application does gain access to the camera, it will only see a dark screen.

Other Android 12 Beta 2 Updates:

  • Improved interface. Available Wi-Fi networks are now displayed in a pop-up panel when you long press the icon in the notification shade. Now you need to go to a separate page to view the available connections. The new interface allows you to stay on the same page and the popup only takes up 2/3 of the screen.


  • The system will show which applications are receiving information from your clipboard. And the latest beta version displays a notification at the bottom of the screen if an app is reading it.

Google still hasn’t realized all the possibilities. Here are the ones still expected to be released:
  1. Material You design, with which the color scheme of the system changes depending on the wallpaper you choose.
  2. Audible haptic feedback for a richer or more immersive experience is also still awaiting developer implementation.
