Android 12 emulates a feature already familiar to console users. The new Android 12 operating system is one of the most eagerly awaited programs to be developed in recent years. For months, through leaks and beta versions that are already running, part of its functionality has been known. The details, options, and extensions that it will cover in the cell phone, promises a lot.
In this way, a recent revelation of an unprecedented option for Android cell phones was released. It was also announced by Google representatives at the most recent Game Developer Summit. According to the Tech Crunch portal, the time that passes from the start of a download to the start of the video game was accelerated twice as much for users with the new operating system.
The publication details that the function will be called “play while downloading”. And it will be available to users with Android 12 who download video games from the Google Play Store. It will not be necessary that all the resources of the application are downloaded on your phone so you can enjoy a brief game until the installation is completed.
Google representatives emphasize that video games, on average, are the most important applications on smartphones. Therefore, it can sometimes take longer than patience can reach. Then, that brief test could even serve to cancel the download, if it is the case that you did not like the development.
This function that comes to Android 12 is already known by users of video game consoles such as PlayStation, who can play while installing the new video game.
Other Android 12 features
About a month ago Google released Android 12 beta 2 and the new features were surprising. The new test version brought several features that were not seen in the previous one, and many of these related to the security of Google’s system.
Security is undoubtedly one of Google’s priorities and this is reflected in its latest beta version.
In its privacy panel, there is a tool that indicates which applications have made use of the camera or microphone in the last 24 hours.
These are camera and microphone usage indicators. This works as a visual cup on the screen that when activated a green or orange icon appears whenever the camera or microphone is in use, something similar to what iPhone has been applying for some time as a security measure.
It has also been seen on Android devices such as OnePlus’ Oxygen OS 11, but now it is coming to all Android devices.
