Android 12 will automatically adjust the screen rotation
XDA Developer Forum is currently exploring new features through the Android 12 DP1 developer preview. These features are usually not publicly explained by Google.
New features that have been unearthed include camera and microphone usage indicators, one-click disabling of the camera and microphone, one-handed mode, and an improved notification center.
Of course, as a new version, Google will definitely provide more features for this version, so let’s take a look at the latest new features discovered by the XDA Developer Forum.
Sometimes when we use a smartphone, we may need a horizontal screen, such as running a game or watching a video. In this case, we need to unlock the screen rotation.
Some games and video applications can automatically landscape the screen, but some applications do not support it, and it is inconvenient to rely on the user to manually turn on or off the screen rotation each time.
Google’s idea in Android 12 is to directly call the front camera to detect the user’s head position and automatically switch the screen horizontally and vertically when necessary.
According to 9to5google, this function may detect the movement of the mobile phone through the sensor, and then cooperate with the front camera to detect it to ensure that it will not be flipped at the wrong time.
In this update, Google is also developing a new feature called game management service, which is said to be used to manage game-related functions, but it is not clear at present.
XDA-developers said that this feature may allow users to manage games and retain data after restarting. This type of feature is already available in some customized Android versions.
Google also supports this feature, which may be used to standardize the game mode and optimize the performance of the device. In addition, Google is also improving Bluetooth to detect the power of the external handle.
If the power of the external handle is insufficient, the GameManager service will also pop up a prompt to remind the user to charge as soon as possible.
Another change is that Google now adds a brightness adjustment function to the notification center.
This function is part of the Android auxiliary function, which is used to help visually impaired users quickly adjust the screen brightness so that they can better see the screen content.
However, Google has not explained this function in the system, so it is not clear about more changes. This may need to wait for the follow-up beta of Android 12.
