If you’re the kind of Android user who double checks every app permission, keeps up to date with every new feature, and is actually interested in the app’s split screen, then you need to read this detailed explanation of the changes to expect in Android 13 later this year. It’s a thorough and organized changelog – with a table of contents – of developer preview 2 of the unreleased Android 13 and reads like it’s an official internal guide to all the changes.
This thoroughly documented Android 13 changelog was written by none other than former XDA Developers editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman – who last year discovered the technical reason why Microsoft Teams and Android 12 caused a failed emergency call.

USB HAL is being updated to 2.0, with a limitPowerTransfer system API and support for USB audio docks. Yet another change aimed at improving the docked tablet experience amid rumors of the 2022 Nest Hub moving to that form factor.https://t.co/IJvYMscAH8
