Android 13 Preview 1 is now out to let developers experience the first look of Android. Google is designing Android 13 with keeping “privacy and security as well as developer productivity” at the centre stage.
The new Android version comes just weeks after the release of Android 12L that was mainly aimed to offer better support for larger screens. Android 13 Developer Preview 1 is meant for app developers to let them start making their apps ready for the next major Android update.
Google announced through a blog post that the Android 13 Developer Preview 1 can be installed on the Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 6, and the Pixel 6 Pro.
Alongside announcing the latest developer preview, Google has detailed the release timeline for Android 13 to help developers keep their apps ready by the time the new operating system will be available to consumers.
With privacy in focus, Android 13 introduces a system photo picker that will allow users to share specific photos and videos with apps while keeping their other media files protected.
