Android 12 is the third major release and nineteenth version of Android, an open-source mobile operating system designed by the Open Handset Alliance. The first official developer preview was launched on February 18, 2021. It is the biggest update to date, adding many new features and functions that are sure to be a hit with the Android community and with cellular phone users. Before this point, there were two major versions of Android with two different user interface and two different feature sets: one from Google and one from Samsung.
With this latest release, Google made it easier for developers to create apps for Android. The result is that developers can build more specialized apps for specific devices and to utilize certain features that may not have been available or useful before. One example of an app that was recently added is called Drawer. This app allows users to view a variety of images and text in the native drawer format that is shown on most Android devices. This gives users a quick way to look up a specific item or category without having to open another app.
Aside from apps, there are also many performance enhancements happening across all devices. For instance, the Android Instantiate framework, which provides a fast way to share items, has been greatly enhanced. It now supports background services so that they can run even when the user is not using those applications. There are a number of other improvements that Google is making to Android. The final release of Android will likely introduce many more changes that we can expect.
