Back in September 2020, Google finally released the eleventh major generation of its mobile operating system – Android 11. As of now, several OEMs including Samsung are working to deliver this version to their eligible models via a software update as soon as possible.

Aside from this, the US tech giant introduced the next generation of Android that is the Android 12 back in February. Moving forward, the company has also released two Developer Beta builds so far, which lets developers (only Google Pixel users) understand and grow the Android 12 ecosystem.

Now, as per the latest information, Google started rolling out the Android 12 Developer Preview 3 to the developers that bring One UI 4.0 one more step closer to Samsung smartphone users. Just like the previous builds, the DP3 also comes with various major system improvements as well as new features.

What about public beta and stable release?

From February 2021, Google scheduled to deliver three Developer Preview releases to the Pixel users every month. And according to the timeline, the company will begin the Android 12 public beta next month in which smartphone users from various companies can participate ahead of the stable release.

However, Google has not yet confirmed the launch of Android 12 officially while we can expect that it will happen somewhere in September or October this year. For now, you can check all the latest changes and revisions that come with Android 12 Developer Preview 3 below.

What’s new with Android 12 DP3?

As always, many small adjustments and changes have been made to the new features, but this time the focus is on how developers can provide new haptic feedback experiences in their apps and new app launch animations.

For developers and users, this new application launch experience may be the most obvious change. The new animation will launch the application on the initial screen displaying the application icon, and then launch the animation in the application itself.

Google explained: “The new experience brings standardized design elements to the app every time you start it, but we also customize it so that the app can maintain its unique brand image.” Developers who are considering using their brand will have a lot of leeway in optimizing this splash screen. However, the most basic startup experience is enabled by default.

Rich tactile feedback is also a new feature in this version, which provides a pleasant experience for the game and brings a sense of focus to productivity.

Other new features in this version include a new call notification template, which is designed to provide users with easier management of incoming and ongoing calls. Google said that these new notifications will be more visible and scannable.

Besides, the neural network API for machine learning workloads has been improved, and new APIs have been provided to support various ultra-high resolution camera sensors.

For Android 12, Google does not support the use of RenderScript API to run computationally intensive tasks but supports GPU computing frameworks such as Vulkan and OpenGL.
