Governments look beyond Android and iOS to secure devices

As Google is likely to unveil Android 12 at its I/O 2021, a new leak hints that Android 12 might include some new functional changes, including Google widgets and animations.

According to Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech, for starters, there’s a brand new music widget in the notifications bar, alongside newly redesigned Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles.

There’s also a new volume slider, redesigned notifications, a new clock widget and even a new weather widget.

There’s a lot of small changes, but all of these add up to create a more cohesive and welcoming Android UI, XDA Developers reported.

Presser suggests that the new Android 12 release will focus heavily on the introduction of a new user interface.

The keyboard, app icons and other UI elements all match to create a consistent design across the system.

Google I/O 2021 will be virtual and free to attend and will run from May 18-20. It will feature Consumer and Developer Keynotes followed by Technical Sessions for “product announcements and how to adopt new features”.

Users will have to register for Workshops that are instructor-led and feature Q&A, while Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions will be an “opportunity to ask Google product experts questions”.

Meetups — casual, open, facilitated forums hosted by Google that enable attendees to connect with each other — will also require registration and reservation.
