Android 13 features
Android 13 comes with an evolved look and style that builds on Material You theme. The OS will allow users to customize non-Google apps to match their phone’s wallpaper theme and colors. In addition, Google has added support for more languages with Android 13. Users can assign specific languages to individual apps so they can keep your phone’s system in one language, and each of their apps in a different language.
Android 13 also features an updated media player that tailors its look and feel based on the music or podcast users are listening to. For example, when you’re listening to music, the media player spotlights album artwork and has a playback bar that dances as you progress through a song. It even works for media played through Chrome. The OS also enables Android users to prevent any unwanted access to your clipboard. If you copy sensitive data like your email address, phone number or login credentials on your device, Android will automatically clear your clipboard history after a period of time.
