Google announced the launch of the second beta version of Android 12 phones for Pixel phones, it adds more features of Android 12 that were announced at the Google I / O conference last month but were not included in the first beta, but it also contains two newer features, including Here’s a new way to manage your internet connection, according to Theverege.
In the quick settings Android 12 now has a new button called “Internet” that replaces the old Wi-Fi button, tap on it and you will get a screen that allows you to switch between Wi-Fi networks and also shows your mobile connection.
Google says the idea is to help users “switch between Internet providers and troubleshoot network connectivity issues more easily.” Google’s post asks readers to “tell us what you think,” a sign that this user experience may not be a sure thing, Google often offers ideas New to the user interface and then undo during the Android beta.
Android 12 also picks up a “clipboard read notification”, which will appear anytime an app reads the current clipboard. Others, this will appear from the bottom of the screen. It’s similar to a feature that first appeared on the iPhone, where more people realized that apps were asking for clipboard content when they shouldn’t.
These are two new features, but there are a few other features that Google announced but did not include in the first beta, the first is the privacy control panel, which allows the user to see how often applications ask to use the phone’s microphone, camera and location, Apple had announced a panel Similar control to iOS 15 – although it includes a few more data points than Android.
Google is also turning on previously announced privacy features related to the microphone and camera, and now Android 12 will also have a toggle in the Quick Settings to turn off these sensors.
And if you disable the microphone or the camera in the quick settings, the next time an app tries to access one of them, the system will ask you if you want to restart them, if you refuse the app thinks it has access to the camera or microphone, but all it sees in reality It is dark and all he hears is silence.
With this version, Google is keeping pace with its roadmap for the release of Android 12 this fall, expect more Beta before the final release, this beta version is now available on Pixel phones, and when the final update is released, it will arrive on Pixel phones first, when other phones are updated remains An open and confusing question, as this version of Android has the biggest redesign in years, so other smartphone makers need more time to figure out how to apply their own styles to the new design scheme.
