Google has released an early version of Android 13 Tiramisu to developers. The assembly will allow you to get acquainted with the capabilities of the OS. It is noted that at the moment the new operating system is unstable, so ordinary users should wait a bit with installing it on their devices.
The main innovations of the new Android include improved theme and privacy settings, various optimization features.
The current build of Android 12 has a radically redesigned Material You user interface. Android 13 will continue to develop in this direction.
A lot of attention in the interface is paid to dynamic application icons. So, now it is possible to adjust the color of icons not only for Google programs, but also for third-party ones. To access the feature, developers must create a monochrome label that supports the feature. The first devices to receive this feature will be Pixel devices, but in the future it will spread to devices of other brands.
Security and privacy

In addition, in each application it will be possible to configure languages separately. It also announced the continued development of the Project Mainline project with a modular approach to updating the main components to provide more updates through Google Play, and not at the OS level.
