1. Codename

The Android version always had a sweets based name such as Android KitKat, Android Oreo and Android Pie, this time it has a name dessert, Android officially told us that the codename of Android 13 will be Tiramisu (An Italian Dessert).

2. Notification Access

Till Android 12 if we didn’t want an app to show notifications we have to disable it through app information, but Android 13 will have a new feature of asking for permission to allow or deny the app notifications when the app is started. This feature will be really handy for all those apps that spam or send annoying notifications.

3. QR Code Scanner

Currently, most of the smartphones can scan QR just by the camera, and now Google will be adding a QR code scanner option to the quick setting tile. This will surely help those who don’t have a QR scan feature in their Camera and saves the time of opening the Camera.

4. Pre-App Language for Apps

Android already offers us to change the language of the device which honestly didn’t help much because it wasn’t working on some apps, a lot of users don’t know English and only know their native language, so they have a hard while using their Android phones, so now Android 13 users can choose all languages individually for every app, which will surely help a lot.

Mobile phones with UWB (Ultra Wide Band) Feature can use UWB for various purposes such as using your phone as the key to your car, communicating with devices with UWB support, finding lost devices with UWB feature, etc.
