Samsung One UI 6.0 could make Task Killer apps useless

Samsung One UI 6.0 Task Killer

Yesterday, Google released the Android 14 Developer Preview 2 to Pixel devices. The 2nd development build suggests that Samsung could make Task Killer apps useless with the One UI 6.0 update this year.

According to the information, Google is preparing to severely limit the functionality of apps that claim to make your phone faster by killing background tasks, starting with the upcoming Android 14 OS.

As smartphones are now being shipped with more RAM and internal storage along with faster chipsets and in-built multitasking abilities, Google appears to end the existence of task-killer apps with Android 14.

Apps shouldn’t use the killBackgroundProcesses API or otherwise attempt to influence the process lifecycle of other apps, even on older OS versions. Android is designed to keep cached apps in the background and kill them automatically when the system needs memory. If your app kills other apps unnecessarily, it can reduce system performance and increase battery consumption by requiring full restarts of those apps later, which takes significantly more resources than resuming an existing cached app.

Android 14 DP2 update restricts access to a certain API that has been used by these task-killer apps to kill all background processes for a certain app, which Samsung could follow in One UI 6.0.

Task Killer app can boost your phone’s speed and performance for a short period of time by stopping running apps and services. However, you feel that your phone arrives back at the laggy stage just after a 5-minute gap.

Google says, “It isn’t possible for a 3rd-party application to improve the memory, power, or thermal behavior of an Android device. You should ensure that your app is compliant with Google Play’s policy against misleading claims.”

Samsung will hopefully introduce the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 version later this year. The company could start the Public Beta for Galaxy devices sometime before the official release of Android 14, followed by a Stable release likely in October 2023.
