This week, Google released Android 12, its latest version of its operating system. With some new features and a few performance corrections now available as a developer preview, Android 12 seems quite similar to Android 11, which will enable your phone to work more smoothly.
You can download and install a preview of the developer Android 12 now if you are willing to try out the new OS. But let’s warn that it is probably full of bugs as the first developer preview and is not meant for the average person to try it at this time — particularly not on your main device. In May we expect Google to launch a public beta, and in September we will launch the final version.

Hidden Features Android 12
1. App privacy features
It should be noted that these policies are less stringent than those of the recently released iOS software, which contains new “nutrition labels” apps that show people what data is collected by their apps and the next change that needs developers to request permission from individuals to gather and track data via apps and sites.
2. Redesigned notifications
Google modifies the notifications design with Android 12 to modernize and make them more functional. Tap a notice, and instead of taking a middle-service to start this action, directly take you to the app or action, you would like to take. According to the blog post, it should all run faster.
As noted by XDA developers on the technology site, Android 12 also gets a new button to snuff notifications that are unimportant, and select how long. You can also turn the ranking of adaptive notifications on to allow Android to change the way you work with different applications and reset it if you don’t like it.

3. One-handed mode
Android 12 seems to contain a number of design changes that make operating with one hand and thumb Android phones easier. XDA Developers noted that the updated UI settings move the search bar to the bottom of the screen, making it easy to access with one hand. The new feature called ‘silky house’ was also uncovered, making the whole interface more user-friendly.
