  3. Tap on the System update icon.

Design Update: Material You

This update places appearance at the forefront, and Material You was redesigned to offer a more cohesive user experience. A new feature in this update allows native colors from your wallpaper or home screen to be pulled and repurposed throughout the operating system, including the time and widgets.

Quick Settings Tiles

With larger, more accessible tiles, quick settings have also been revamped, with options such as brightness, Bluetooth, torch, and battery saver to name just a few. In some cases, the features have been updated - for example, the internet tile now takes you to a new menu. With this page, you can toggle Wi-Fi off or on, select mobile data, or switch networks entirely.

Privacy Dashboard

Android 12 comes with a completely new feature: the Privacy Dashboard, which acts as a central hub for all your permissions data. You'll see a pie chart in the Privacy Dashboard when you open it, showing you which apps are using certain permissions when. After that, you can disable specific permissions like location, camera, or microphone, if you wish.

Camera and Microphone Indicators

Android 12 introduces camera and microphone indicators along with the Privacy Dashboard. You'll see a small green rectangle containing either a microphone or camera symbol at the top-right corner of your display whenever you're using an app that accesses one of these features. This lets you see your permissions in real-time, so you can close the task if something needs to be changed.

Scan the screen to see it in action.

So far, Android screenshots have only captured the exact frame you could see on your screen - so they have been static. The scrolling screenshot allows you to see an article or webpage as a whole, including hidden content.
You can extract the whole page from a screenshot by tapping Capture More after you take the screenshot as you normally would.

One-handed Mode

Android 12 has also been updated to feature a one-handed mode. By swiftly swiping downwards near the bottom of the screen, you can maximize this setting when it is enabled. Display contents will shift downward, so any controls at the top can be easily accessed without stretching or using a second hand.

Play in the gaming mode.

Mobile gamers will be happy to know that there is even a dedicated Gaming Mode, but it is hidden in your notification settings. Gamers will automatically be put in do not disturb mode when they activate Gaming Mode, while gamers can access settings such as FPS from the Game Dashboard, and stream their gameplay to YouTube Live.

On your smartphone, you can activate Game Mode by selecting Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb > Schedules.
