In addition to bringing a major design overhaul, Android 12 will feature a function that will show when an app is using the smartphone’s microphone or camera.
According to Android Police, the function is not yet available on the system, which was released in a previous version recently. However, Google has confirmed that it will bring the novelty in the second beta of Android 12.
The new version of the operating system will display a camera and microphone symbol on the top bar of the screen when the features are in use. In addition to advising the user on the capture of sound and image, the tool will bring quick management options to avoid using the sensors.
In addition to facilitating access management for camera and microphone, Android 12 will also feature a “privacy center”. The interface will show, in detail, which apps can access cell phone functions.
