We are still trying to clean up Android 12…
What you need to know
- Android 13 can allow users to choose a language based on each application.
- The new lock screen option will allow users to keep the new lock screen clock.
- Other improvements may include better Bluetooth LE support.
Android 12 barely runs on some of the best Android phones. However, as the company works hard to resolve the bugs in its stable version, we already know in advance what Android 13 will bring.
XDA-Developers managed to obtain an early version of Android 13. Although there don’t seem to be any major changes so far, there are some noteworthy features in this version, and we may or may not see major Android upgrades in the next version.
The first includes a feature first reported by Android Police this week. This setting will allow users to choose their preferred language on a per-application basis. The setting of the code name “Panyu” is very helpful for multilingual users in some cases. XDA-Developers managed to show us what this feature looks like in use.
According to XDA, one limitation of this feature is that the application must support the selected language in order to run. However, it can encourage developers to extend language support.
Android 13 may also change how notifications are handled. Unlike the current version of the app that automatically pushes notifications to your smartphone, notifications may become opt-in. This means that the user must allow the app to push notifications, similar to the way the device requests permission to use location data or other peripheral devices.
This will enable users to better handle notifications, and as you download more applications, notifications will pile up quickly. In this way, users can decide from the beginning whether they want to apply push notifications without having to delve into application settings later.
There are also reports that Android 13 will include other improvements, such as better support for Bluetooth LE audio, a new application power management system called “TARE” (Android Resource Economy), and a new option to maintain dual lines from Android 12. Lock screen clock.
Android 13 may be the first version to fully support Bluetooth LE audio.
Google recently merged an LC3 (LE Audio Codec) encoder and added the codec as an option in the settings. It will be the highest priority A2DP source codec.

It’s too early, and it hasn’t said which features will become the final version of Android 13. Google is likely to be testing some of these features, but decided to push them to a higher version. Considering the large number of paint jobs that Android 12 has received with Material You, we shouldn’t expect any major visual changes either.
If the 2020 timeline can pass, we may not expect the first developer preview of Android 13 to be released until February. At that time we should have a better understanding of what Google plans to update for its next major version.
