Early version of Android 13 “Tiramisu” is leaked. What’s new?

Android 12 is slowly becoming available to almost all relatively modern phones. Meanwhile, Google is already working hard on Android 13. The first presentation was supposed to be next year, but someone spoiled the surprise.

XDA Editors of trzymała from a known, trusted informant very early compilation of Android 13. In so fresh that it is still probably nothing like the final production version, which will be demonstrated and made available to users in the next year. There are not too many novelties yet – but the ones already added are quite interesting.

Android 13 is expected to be officially unveiled in Spring 2022 as part of the annual developer I / O conference. It will probably be available to the first users in the fall of next year. It should also be assumed that the new Android, as always, will be available to those willing in the form of a beta test version.

Android 13 will allow you to change the language of each application separately.

As of today, all applications installed on an Android phone or tablet automatically adjust their interface language to the one set in the system. It is not possible to change this setting unless the creator of the application himself programs the menu that allows you to manually change this language. Android 13 is supposed to fix this problem.

The application language selection menu is to be available both in the System Settings and in the Application info view. The user will be able to define the language as desired for each of the apps separately. This will be especially useful for those users who use the application without Polish translation and who are at odds with the English language. Android always sets the English language in such cases. Now the user will be able to change this language to Spanish, German, Russian or another, which he speaks much more efficiently than the above-mentioned English.

Notifications become another permission. In Android 13, the application must ask for user consent.

Google Android offers a very extensive menu for managing notifications. The user can set their severity, types of alerts or even enter different settings for different types of notifications within one application. However, there is one problem: these extensive menus are used to modify the default settings that are put on installed applications. In other words, to limit the number of notifications from an application, the user has to configure each application separately. Alternatively, disable or limit the notifications as a whole.

This is about to change in Android 13. The ability to send notifications is to be treated by the system as a special right, such as the ability to read the location, access to the microphone or contact box. The first time the application is launched, it will be able to ask the user for permission to send notifications. Until the user gives it, no entry from that app will appear in the Notification Center.

Android 13 will introduce TARE. The Android Resource Economy aims to reward energy-efficient applications.

Today, little is known about the TARE mechanism. A superficial analysis of an early version of Android 13 shows that the system will award points to applications, and their value will depend on the battery level in the device. These points are a kind of metaphor for the currency that applications will be able to spend in exchange for the device’s processor time – which is directly related to energy consumption.

The less energy there is in the battery, the lower the number of points awarded to the application. Therefore, programmers will have to design applications in such a way that they use as little CPU time as possible running in the background so that they manage these points in the most economical way. Otherwise, these apps will lose the ability to run background tasks when the battery is low.

Android 13 with a new lock screen clock. Mainly theoretical novelty.

Android 13 will offer users the ability to customize the position and appearance of the watch on the lock screen. However, it is difficult to write more about it, because very few users will benefit from this novelty. Almost all manufacturers of Android devices modify this system to distinguish their products from others. The lock screen, including its appearance and settings, is one of the first things they change. This setting has long been available on many devices. It may never reach others or on a completely different occasion.
