The new Android continues the evolution of the already familiar design, which Google refers to as Material You. For example, the icons of third-party applications can now be adjusted to a uniform appearance, and the media player can change its appearance based on the music or podcast you are currently listening to. You will certainly appreciate the more detailed settings for each installed application, where you can choose the preferred language of the application as well as the convenience store mode. For example, the given application turns into dark mode or reduces the brightness.
Any app will have to ask for your permission again in order to send you various notifications. This is a welcome change, because some applications go overboard with notifications and clutter your entire bar within a few hours. The system itself will also continuously erase the contents of the clipboard into which you copy things, if it is sensitive data, which includes, for example, an e-mail address or phone number, or some login data.
The news also applies to tablets that will receive Android 13. In their case, it will be possible to see all open applications on one screen and easily drag them into a separate window. Tablets also get a handy feature regarding styluses. If you use them, the display will not respond to palm touch and there will be no risk of unwanted touches.
