The operating system should also feel faster and more responsive and at the same time work more efficiently in order to extend the battery life. System services are said to require up to 22 percent less CPU time and the use of main services by the system server has been reduced by up to 15 percent.

The new notification bar should score with a clearer view of the current app notifications and prominently places which music is currently being listened to or which video is currently being watched.

Android 12 should also better visualize what happens to the personal data on the smartphone and give the user more control over it. Users should be able to decide for themselves how much private information apps can access. There is a new privacy dashboard in Android 12 for this.

In the future, it should be made easier for them to offer apps via alternative app stores. In the checkout process, Google highlights more clearly which apps must use Google’s payment system.
