The latest announcement from Sony, which has started the rollout of Android 13 for their latest Xperia smartphones, is short and sweet. Updates for Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 5 IV will roll out first Of course, these are currently the newest and most expensive smartphones, so Sony is no different from other OEMs
This is new in Android 13
The new Android version is less comprehensive than its predecessor. Instead, Google tried to improve and extend some of the existing features. For example, MaterialU’s Dynamic Color has many more color palettes. But things like a media player will also be improved in Quick Settings and even a QR code scanner will be integrated directly into the system!
Google limits external apps’ access to files and media, expands data protection/privacy functions, no longer allows apps to automatically deliver notifications, better controls the clipboard, allows other languages on a per-app basis, and improves multitasking. There are also some innovations for Pixel Launcher.
Android 13 is the launch of Google Wallet, bringing the game dashboard to non-Google Pixel devices. Additionally, seamless synchronization between your devices is planned. If you copy something to your phone, it’s immediately available on your tablet. Bluetooth LE is fully integrated and spatial audio is supported.
