Download/Install Android 12 For Supported Devices (Full List)

Android 12 brings major redesign ever seen in any version of Android. The user interface (UI) looks much better and it allows users to have more control over privacy. The little round toggles in Quick Settings are replaced by rectangular buttons and the Quick Settings shade automatically adjusts its color, based on the wallpaper.

The volume slider has been updated to a bigger size. Android 12 brings large and round pin-code buttons on the lock, which is easily clickable. The notifications in Android 12 are tweaked to grouped automatically per app. There’s a Privacy dashboard in Settings > Privacy, which shows an overview of which apps used what, like which app accessed location at what time. Another good change is that an icon appears in the status bar whenever an app uses camera or microphone. Android 12 gives the user to quickly disable microphone and camera access using a dedicated button in the Quick Settings panel.

The Android 12 is now available as public beta for Google Pixel phones and some other phones from smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus, and more. You can see the complete list down below.
