Google I/O is an exciting event that the company hosts every year where we see the newest version of Android being unveiled officially. Not only that, Google launches a lot of other stuff during the event, and this year, Google I/O kicks off on the 18th of May. So just a couple of days are left for the virtual event, but before Google does it, we got to see the new design changes that the Android 12 comes with, thanks to Jon Prosser from Front Page Tech, who shared the official slides that we are going to see at the event.
The very first slide shows what’s new in the new version of Android. So there are three things that sum up Android 12. First, there are new UI changes, then there are privacy and security-related upgrades, and finally, Android 12 makes all of the connected devices work better together.
The very next slide shows what is new there in terms of the design, and this time, Google has gone all out with the UI overhaul. In a previous couple of versions of Android, we didn’t see much change in the UI, but with Android 12, Google will change almost everything, from the way Notifications are shown to the way Quick Settings look. As we can see, there is a new Music Widget, new Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles, redesigned volume and brightness sliders, new weather and clock widgets, and more. And that’s not it! Jon also shared the official promo video of Android 12, which shows all these new UI elements in action. You can watch the video here –
Well, all we got to know were the design-related changes, so we don’t know what new Google has added for better privacy and security in the newest version of Android.
At the Google I/O, we are also expecting to see the launch of Google Pixel 5a, the design of which we have seen already. Just a couple of days are now left for the event to kick-off so let’s see what Google has to showcase with Android 12.
