What has been said about Android 12 so far

However, Google seems to be offering all the more transformative news with the upcoming Android 12. A preview version of Android 12 may land as early as this week. Last year, for example, Google released the first preview version of the new system on February 19.

We have summarized what has been said about Android 12 so far, before the release for developers. All information is based on rumors so nothing has been nailed yet.

Extended theme support

Android 12 seems to offer a more powerful theme support, with greater opportunities to personalize the system and get a tailored interface. Even today, Pixel users can change accent color, font, status bar icons, and icon shapes.

In Android 12, it should also be possible to change the main color, that is the background color. The two colors will possibly also be reflected in third-party apps, as far as developers added support.

New interface

Screenshots that allegedly come from documentation shared by Google with manufacturers have shown major interface changes. Objects are significantly more rounded than before, the notification menu has been redesigned and the home screen houses a new type of widget.

In a survey on Swedroid, 59% answered that they think the new interface is an improvement, while 29% had not yet decided.

Privacy icons in the status bar

Android 12 is rumored to indicate in the status bar when apps use, for example, the microphone and camera. The idea is that users will have greater insight into how apps use potentially sensitive parts of the phone.

According to the screenshots, microphone and camera icons appear in the status bar when used by apps. The indication then becomes only a green discreet dot. When pressed, Android 12 tells you which apps used the sensors.
