vivo, one of the first smartphone brands to receive Android 13 Beta, is making the system upgrade available to developers to optimise and deliver the brand new Android experience to vivo users. The X80 Pro will be vivo’s first smartphone model eligible for the latest Android 13 Beta.
Enhanced user experience with improved security and privacy
Every Android upgrade delivers an improved interactive user experience, and Android 13 is no exception. This version’s newly added Foreground Services (FGS) Task Manager shows a list of apps that are actively performing tasks in the foreground, enabling users to easily end foreground services from the notification drawer. In addition, Android 13 Beta provides developers with a separate API that allows users to select a preferred language for each app.
In terms of security and privacy, Android 13 Beta introduces a new system of permissions management and setting functions. It strengthens and protects user security and privacy in numerous scenarios, including notification runtime permissions, background motion sensors, exporting of context-registered receivers, and active downgrading of applications.
Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Audio, Programmable Shaders, and Quick Settings placement are new features introduced to improve multimedia content processing, including photos and audio. The new version also includes battery resource utilisation functions to improve battery life.
