Android 13 Developer Preview! Google’s first developer preview of Android 13 released (with updated content)

1 Mins read

Android 12 L is still in beta program ahead of the first quarter launch. Google announced the Android 13 Developer Preview earlier today.

Android 13 once again introduces “Privacy and Security” as a major update. With a focus on “creating a responsible, high-quality platform for all by providing a more secure environment on devices and giving users more control”. It begins with the system photo picker in Developer Preview 1 to provide “a standard and customized way for users to share photos securely, both locally and in the cloud.”

It allows users to pick and choose the pictures and videos that are shared. Whereas the Photo Picker API allows applications to access shared media “without having permission to view all media files on the device”. Google plans to bring this functionality to Android 11 (except for the Go version) and later through updates to the MediaProvider module in the future.

Google plans to release six versions over the next few months before rolling out consumer versions for Pixel phones and other devices later this year. Users can install Android 13 DP1 on compatible Pixel 4 (XL), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
