Android 12 Go
Android Go is an Android operating system designed for entry-level phones. Google has simplified the current Android system so that it can run smoothly on small memory phones. Generally speaking, Android Go system phones are mainly for the low-end market.
Google this week announced the new features of the Android 12 Go version. Google said more than 200 million people are using Android Go smartphones, and the newly debuted Android 12 Go version is smoother, more power-saving, and more secure. Google claims that Apps will launch 30 percent faster on the Android 12 Go version. Google also claims that devices running the Android 12 Go version will offer better battery life.
Android 12 Go Features:
- Apps on Android 12 Go devices will launch 30 percent faster with smoother animations – meaning they will open immediately and no longer wait on a blank screen.
- Android 12 Go will automatically save battery life and storage space by hibernating apps that have not been used for a long time – especially helpful for devices with limited storage capacity.
- It will also make it easier to understand your content. By navigating to the Recent Apps screen, you’ll see the option to listen to the news and translate whatever’s on your screen into your preferred language.
- With Android 12 Go, you’ll be able to save data by sharing apps directly with nearby devices using Nearby Sharing and Google Play.
- Google has simplified the guest user experience on Android 12 Go by making profiles available directly on the lock screen. You’ll be able to easily switch to a guest profile before sharing your device, and reset it when they’re done.
- It will give you more transparency into the apps that access your data, as well as more control over how much private information your apps can access.
- It comes with a new privacy dashboard. You’ll see a snapshot of which apps are accessing specific types of sensitive data, like the microphone, and revoke permissions when needed. A new privacy indicator on the status bar will tell you when your app is specifically accessing your microphone or camera.
- With the new approximate location permission, you can guide apps to only see your approximate location, not your exact location. For example, limiting your weather app to your approximate location will still give you an accurate forecast.
