Google released the second beta of Android 12: what's new

Google launched the first beta of Android 12 at a Google I / O event last month. Now developers have access to the second test version of the operating system. In it, Google has continued to improve the user experience and user interface of Android 12.

One of the main changes was the replacement of the "Wi-Fi" button in the quick settings panel with the "Internet" button. By clicking on it, the user will be able to activate the Wi-Fi connection, select another network or switch to using cellular data. Dual SIM device owners will also have the option to change their preferred carrier.

Another change is related to the privacy control panel. It will now provide users with a user-friendly interface to keep track of which apps are using their personal data and how. The function will also allow users to find out for what purpose the software has requested access to their personal information. However, for the new feature to work, app developers will need to follow Google's guidelines.

Now in Android 12, similar to iOS 14, the device's microphone and camera activity indicators will be displayed when they are activated by applications. The system will also inform users about requests from applications to access the clipboard.

Google hasn't forgotten about the developers either. Together with Android 12, they will receive a number of new tools that will improve the experience of using the software, right up to the implementation of deeper tactile feedback. Android 12 Beta 2 is already available as a download from the Google Developers website.
