But generally, once the update starts rolling out it will be made available to Android users all you will need to do is go to System > Advanced > System update > Check for updates. Here you will find you latest Android update on your Android smart phone.

A major question which does creep in users mind is will the new Android version be compatible to their devices, with vast no of mobile companies running on Android it’s difficult to list all the devices which support. But you can expect Google Pixel 3 along with phones from Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo and other manufacturers to roll out the updates as soon as possible to their users.

What are the key features of Android 12?

Another changes how to export information and data. However, these policies are less strict than that of Apple’s IOS.

Redesigned notifications will give a modern touch and functionality. When you tap on notifications, it will take you to the action you want to take instead of going through intermediary service to start the action, this will give the device a snappy interface that runs faster. The latest update also will rearrange you notification on how you work with different apps. Another cool feature is the – hand mode which makes it easier for the user to operate the phone with the thumb, search bar will be made available at the bottom of screen while on this feature. The new feature “silky home” makes the thumb user interface more suitable and easier to use.

Trash and recycle bin management

Google may allow you to manage the Recycle bin with the Android 12, You will be able to see how much of storage space your trashed items take up and clear the trash as needed.

Face Based auto-rotate

You can turn your phone on portrait or landscape and the screen will adjust with you. With Android 12, on Pixel phones it appears you’ll be able to choose to auto rotate based on the way your head is turned – if you are lying down, according to 9to5Google.

There’s plenty more you can discover once Android 12 officially rolls out on your Android devices.
