Rumors about Android 13 are starting to surface, and the latest leaked about a more dynamic display of notification permissions. If you haven’t been following the previous news, early leaks of Android 13 suggest that notifications are becoming an opt-in process thanks to new permissions.
Previously, we knew that the change would mean a new section in particular in the display of notification permission requests. And now a leak from a trusted source shows a new look when you access notification permissions on Android 13. Here’s the new look.
If this doesn’t change until the release of Android 13, then when an app on an Android 13 phone requests the new POST_NOTIFICATIONS runtime permission for the first time, you’re greeted with a dialog similar to the one shown above. In this option there are only 2 options, namely, allow or not allow. Once granted (or declined), the application will (or may not) be able to send you a notification.
Other Leaks About Features Coming to Android 13
Currently, there are still many Android users who are waiting for the stable version of the Android 12 update and Android 12L is still in the beta stage for their devices. Even so, its successor which will be named Android 13 is already running and some of its features have been leaked to the public.
This leak is known to come from XDA Developers who obtained information from a source with access to the initial build of Android 13. Since this is still in the early stages of development, it is possible that this feature could change later when the final version is released. But at least now you know in advance about the new features that will be present on Android 13.
One of the promising features of Android 13 is the option to set a different language for each app. Currently on all versions of Android users can only enable one language for system-wide settings.
This feature will later be useful for users who are fluent in many languages. This feature called ‘Panlingual’ can be accessed via the ‘App Language‘ menu in the settings later. Apart from that, Google is also setting up new access permissions for notifications. Currently, Android users are required to receive notifications from the app and have to manually opt-out to turn it off. With this new feature, users can choose to allow which apps can display notifications or not. This method is similar to how the user chooses to give the app permission to the location or camera.
Android 13 also seems to be introducing a new feature called ‘Android Resource Economy‘ that can help users keep the phone’s battery last longer. With this feature, the app will be given credits based on the phone’s battery level. These credits can then be redeemed for performing certain tasks. It seems that the less power is left, the less credit is given to the application.
Lastly, Google will likely bring a visual change to the lock screen clock so that it can be displayed in one line. As is known, currently the lock screen clock display always changes to two lines if no notifications come in.
