Calling It Android 12, aka Snow Cone

Google endorsed the name in 2020. Google stated last September via an Android Developers blog post that the 2021 Android release will be called Android 12. The intention hereabouts is to make matters more symmetrical, so Google accepts a basic numbered appearance rather than accelerating the previously used sweet treat names. If you want to know what a cute Android 12 name is, we have a good idea about it. Note that Google removed the official word from the Android version two years ago after pleasing the sweets. However, it is treated as an internal code name. We assume that this year (via XDA developers), the code name can be "Snow Cone." It corresponds to Android 11's internal codename "red velvet cake" and Android 10's internal codename "fifteen cakes." We conclude that Android 12 is also named Snow Cone - the S moniker resembles momentarily in the status bar when it initial boots up.

What's New in Android 12?

Yes, A lot is new! When the official release is ready, there will be many modifications, including a moving overhaul of the user interface and unique customization and privacy abilities.  

Hither is some of the reforms already introduced: 

Lock Screen Clock

The new lock screen clock is the one users will likely notice after powering up Android 12. Explicit notification, a large digital clock fills the center of the screen.

The Appearance of PIN Code Keys

When swiping to unlock the phone, users will notice the new design of the PIN-code keyboard. The buttons are round, large, and simple in color.


Recent notification windows will automatically be arranged according to apps or parted out if they are not conversational. There is also a simple new snooze control. Users only need to tap to snooze without flicking notifications. You can then disable certain notifications for a while.

Quick settings changes

For the quick settings and notifications, they have been replaced by much larger rectangle controls. Mostly similar to Android 11's power menu for controlling smart home devices. The colors can be matched to wallpapers or manually customized further. 

Taking Screenshots is Easier than Ever.

Screenshots are not monotonic anymore. Other than the edit/markup function like before, the user can now write on screenshots in different fonts and colors, plus the user can also attach some emojis. Zoom-in-out benefits are also available. Easily By swiping the thumbnails of the screen, users can dismiss.

Share Sheet Image Edit Option

Like the bookmarks in the screenshot above, a new editing option will appear during share an image file, allowing you to bookmark the image before sharing. Simply open the standard sharing menu and click More. You will download other applications and get editing options next to the "Stop Sharing" button below the thumbnail.

Customization and Theming

Google's gradually been developing its theming and customization choices, and with the first developer presurvey of Android 12, users can now customize their Home Screen grid more. 

Media Player Interface Changes

One of the most notable changes in the user interface is the updated media control widget in the drop-down menu when playing music. Google expanded it to almost the entire width of the screen and adjusted the layout to bring the controls closer to the center of the screen. In extension, it will take up more lock screen space when it is active. If users are playing music locally on their phone, they can click the small icon on the corner of the widget, which will bring up a new pop-up window with the playback location. Here, they can adjust the volume of the music or quickly connect a new device (such as a headset) to a Bluetooth speaker.

App Shortcuts Menu Interface

Another relatively minor change in the user interface is the new quick-access pop-up menu displayed when you press and hold the application icon. The menu is more visible, each command is independent, and it takes up more screen space, making it easier for users to use.

Nearby Share for WiFi Passwords Might Come in Handy.

This is a potentially useful feature that allows you to quickly share WiFi network details with people in the same room as you. Although you used to share WiFi with QR code scanners, Android 12 provides you with a "nearby" option. Tap it to open "Share Nearby" and search for nearby devices to share details.

There are also some rumored Android 12 features. Scrolling screenshot support is one of many. It was supposed to be included in Android 10, but android 10 and 11 were a disappointment on the matter. However, It might be happening in Android 12. Some others are,

Restricted Network Mode: 

Android 12 may introduce an improved network management model that allows the operating system to better control which applications can access the Internet.

App Pairs: 

In theory, this will allow users to manage the two open applications under the "Android Latests" menu as one task. Its name is reminiscent of the function of a pair of Samsung apps in a user interface. Allows users to open two applications on the screen at the same time from the Edge control panel. It has a similar function, allowing users to open specific applications directly from the home screen shortcut. It is not clear whether the native Android solution includes any of these features.

New Emoji: 

The next version of Android may have a new emoji based on Unicode emoji version 13.1.

Fixes to Back Swipe Gestures: 

Google can use machine learning models to make gestures in Android 12 brighter and smoother. According to the XDA report, the operating system calculates the user's intentions based on various data points. It can include the beginning and end of a gesture—the width of the application itself and the device screen. Then, you will use it to predict the user's work status. The report suggests that this feature can support 43,000 applications.
