Today, Android Authority, referring to the XDA Devolopers portal, talked about the changes in the Android 12 interface that Google, for some reason, decided to hide in the first beta version of the system for developers. To turn them on required special skills.
Specialists-enthusiasts who understand programming, a day after the release of the beta version, they were able to find settings in the source code of Android 12 that are responsible for showing and hiding the new system interface. As it turns out, Android 12 is full of surprises. The first thing that the developers noticed was the new design of the “always-on display” and the lock screen.
In the images above, you can notice that the clock font and position have changed. The date, weather information, and notification icons are now in the upper left corner and the clock in the right. This solution allows you to quickly read the information you need. The same is on the lock screen, but when there are no notifications, the clock is centered and enlarged over most of the screen.
Users have also discovered a completely new look and feel for Action Center and Quick Settings. The background of the background, unlike the original interface, has no transparency. Quick Settings are now placed in a 3×3 grid.
Most likely, these are not the only interface innovations, and with the release of the next beta versions of Android 12, we will see other changes. It is worth noting that Google has previously resorted to a gradual modification of the interface at the stage of testing a new version of the OS.
