Photo privacy feature
Android 13 is expected to bring a new kill switch that will prevent apps from getting access to your camera and mic. Users will also have an option to show their approximate location to apps instead of the exact location. Another photo privacy feature is a photo picker that will let users give access to particular media files instead of all of them while uploading images and videos to social media, photo editing apps.
A Material You UI makeover
Building on Android 12’s Material You design, Android 13 will add more colour customizations for users. To recall, these colour customisation were only applicable to the Google apps, but now they will be expanded to the other apps as well. It is expected that these new colour customisation options will include “spritz”, “expressive” and more.
Battery draining app notifications
Android 13 will notify users of the apps draining their phone’s battery even when they are not actively using it. It will send you a notification whenever an app gobbles up a huge chunk of battery life over the course of a day.
An iOS functionality
iOS allows users to have adaptive brightness not just for display but for flashlight as well. It is expected that Android users will also get able to get this feature along with a few customisations in Android 13.
