San Francisco, May 16
As Google is likely to unveil Android 12 at its I/O 2021, a new leak hints that Android 12Amight include some new functional changes, including Google widgets and animations.
According to Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech, for starters, there’s a brand-new music widget in the notifications bar, alongside newly redesigned Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles.
There’s also a new volume slider, redesigned notifications, a new clock widget and even a new weather widget.
There’s a lot of small changes, but all of these add up to create a more cohesive and welcoming Android UI, XDA Developers reported.
Presser suggests that the new Android 12 release will focus heavily on the introduction of a new user interface.
The keyboard, app icons and other UI elements all match to create a consistent design across the system.
Google I/O 2021 will be virtual and free to attend and will run from May 18-20. It will feature Consumer and Developer Keynotes followed by Technical Sessions for “product announcements and how to adopt new features”.
Users will have to register for Workshops that are instructor-led and feature Q&A, while Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions will be an “opportunity to ask Google product experts questions”.
Meetups—casual, open, facilitated forums hosted by Google that enable attendees to connect with each other—will also require registration and reservation. — IANS
