Earlier this month, Google officially announced the stable version of the Android 12 operating system for the smartphone. However, unlike the previous version, this time, Google is yet to roll out the latest update to its own smartphones or even announce a timeline for the same.
But now, with the official launching of the latest Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones in the market, the tech giant has also started rolling out the Android 12 update to the Pixel series of smartphones.
It’s worth mentioning that the latest Pixel 6 lineup already comes pre-installed with the latest Android 12 OS. The rollout of this new update for other devices comes after the company released the final Beta 5 version of Android last month.
While the latest Android 12 comes with several new features and functionalities, one of the major changes comes in the form of the revamped interface. This time, the company is using the new Material You user interface.
Apart from the new design, the latest version of the operating system also comes with new widgets and notification design, privacy dashboard and security enhancements, scrolling screenshots, Nearby share, and more. For a detailed list of features available with Android 12, check out this article.
Earlier, Google had revealed that the Android 12 update will be made available for devices from companies like Samsung, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Tecno, Vivo, and Xiaomi later this year. Some of these brands have already announced their own custom user interfaces based on the latest Android 12, including ColorOS 12 from OPPO and One UI 4.0 from the South Korean giant Samsung.
