Android 12 Released : All New Features, List of Eligible Devices


On October 4, 2021 Android 12 finally made it but with a catch! It had been long awaited and it is in fact still awaited. It is mind-boggling to think how Android 12 is considered “released” when it is actually not. This might be the first time it has happened but the new features of Android 12 are very refreshing by its looks. Here are some amazing additions and eligible devices for Android 12:

So, What is new ? 

  • Material You : Auto Theming , Will adapt to your likes and dislikes. This is an exclusive feature since we are waiting for Pixel to release it first and then it will eventually be updated on other phones.


Android 12 Material You
  • Scrolling Screenshots & Screen Recording: This feature allows you to take screenshots longer than the screen. Screen recording is one of the wanted features that Android 12 has updated on.
  • Updated Widgets
Android 12 Eligible Devices
  • Privacy Dashboard: If anyone uses your phone , then it is going to notify you on who used which application , which is going to give you “after privacy” i guess , this feature also includes Camera & Microphone Privacy.
Android 12 Features
  • Gaming Dashboard: The biggest one is here. In this new feature it gives you FPS along with streaming options on YouTube allowing you to easily take screenshots during mid game.
Android 12 Eligible Devices
  • One-handed mode: Vey simple and easy to use. This is one of the useful one where it basically, just brings the bits which are little difficult to reach closer, which makes them easier to reach to.
  • Fluid animations: If you use the on animation by pressing button , it allows the screen to expand outward and fill the screen while your background contents fade in.

  • Say Goodbye to the Power Menu: Personally , I am not a fan of this feature since the device control seems to have been removed with no particular reason. Rather power menu shortcut has been added to quick settings.
  • Google Assistant: Updated
  • Adjust Your Lights From the Quick Settings: Quick setting makes it easier for you to adjust the lights according to you accommodation.
  • Don’t Forget Google Pay

Besides ,Google Pixel phones on Android 12 beta are not updating to the released full version.Releasing it for the entire world putting source code files available for even Third-Party developers to create custom ROMs , which is crazy.
