Next week, Google I / O developers conference starts, where, among other things, the search giant will talk about the new version of the green robot – Android 12. A few days before the announcement, the famous blogger John Prosser posted an official video dedicated to Android 12 on the network. He also leaked images of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro .
The new version of the green robot will offer a fairly significantly redesigned user interface that will offer built-in support for themes, and the user will be able to make the device more personalized. A redesigned keyboard, new notifications, app icons, and a redesigned system app can transform the look and feel depending on the theme you choose. Among other things, the developers have updated animations throughout the user interface, making it smoother and more visually pleasing.
The video does not yet give a complete picture of what the Android 12 operating system will be like, but it seems that Google is preparing to seriously redesign it, to make it more harmonious in appearance. The company also says the firmware will bring a “great new experience” that will offer users “enhanced privacy and security protections”.
Google may also start pushing the Android ecosystem more aggressively with this update. One slide says “all your devices work better together,” which speaks in favor of tighter integration with smart home products and wearables.
Gizchina News of the week
Google I / O
Last year, the Google I / O developer conference was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, this will not happen this year. The annual Google event will take place online from May 18-20; and will be completely free for anyone who wants to watch the digging events.
The three-day event with a busy schedule promises to be very interesting. For ordinary users, one of the most anticipated announcements is the presentation of Android 12. There are rumors that the new version of the mobile operating system will receive significant changes in the design of the user interface; as well as new features, as is always the case with the release of the next iteration.
Most likely, the I / O conference will not do without the presentation of new hardware products. Google recently cut the price of its Pixel Buds 2 wireless earbuds by $ 50; after which there were rumors about the imminent announcement of a new model. Specifically, the developers may introduce the Pixel Buds A, a more compact version of the wireless earbuds. They are also expected to become a cheaper option; as they will lack some features, such as a battery indicator on the case and support for gesture control.
