Android 12 Preview


Hey guys, so this will be the official promotional video for Android 12.

The video reveals that Google is finally making a change to Android look and feel after years of relatively conservative tweaks.

Here are the most significant parts of this Android 12 visual refresh:

  • Rounded Corners
  • Fluid Look with loads of transitions and effects
  • Revamped call and message notifications
  • Time is also expected to appear differently on Android 12
  • Redesigned Settings Menu
  • Updated Volume Controls
  • Option to manually group notifications
  • Another addition is a counter for unread notifications next to the clock when the device is unlocked
  • Brand new music widget
  • Redesign of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles
  • New clock widget
  • New weather widget

All in all Android 12 comes with a beautiful new experience, but Google is also adding several new privacy features to apps with the goal to give users more transparency and control. What those privacy and security protections entail exactly will remain to be seen.

We also know that Google is working on an alternative to Apple’s App Tracking Transparency feature. It also mentions cross device functionality meaning that all your devices will work better together. This suggest that there will be closer integration with smart phone products and wearables.

On the Android 12 promo video there is possibly a suggestion of how the next Pixel will look as well.


Another interesting note around this brand new Android 12 OS is that the unofficial name for it is Snow Cone. Although Google ditched its desert naming scheme for Android, Google engineers still follow the tradition.

Android 12 Preview: Conclusion

The clip shows updated notification and quick settings visuals, a refreshed keyboard design, a new pill-like style for status bar notifications, an entirely revamped lock screen with a huge clock, a cool ripple animation, and lots of round corners. There’s also a bunch of more obscure shapes and motion that seem like they’re meant to convey greater customizability through theming, which we’ve been expecting.
