News and software updates
Google always shows its next version of Android in Google IO, and this year it is Android 13.
The latest Android operating system launched public beta on April 26, after launching the developer beta for Pixel 6 and below phones in February. Thanks to this, We can already get an idea of what Android 13 offers us.
From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like privacy is going to be a big issue in Android 13, and you might also be able to change the brightness level of your phone’s flashlight. On the other hand, Google has already made progress that the new operating system will allow compressing less-used apps, in case you don’t want to delete them.
For the rest, the new version of the operating system will be perfect, with new, more refined themes, and other practical novelties.
These are all great features, but they aren’t quite as outstanding, so we hope Google has something big up its sleeve for its next update.
Finally, we may see a file Android 13Lthe version specially adapted for tablets and foldable devices.
Google IO is usually a software-focused conference, but even so, the company doesn’t usually talk about Wear OS, the smartwatch operating system…
… But everything changed in 2021, when Wear OS 3 was introduced. This update marks the biggest renewal of this company’s software in years. The system was built with Samsung, although that doesn’t mean that Wear OS use is limited to these brands.
Since then, everything has been pretty quiet when it comes to Wear OS, at least more than we might have expected, given that not many companies have adopted the new system as we thought (and as Google would have preferred). Whatever the case, we don’t think Google will forget its software; We hope to announce new features during Google IO 2022, which will make the system more attractive to other manufacturers.

Although from Google Internet of Things 2021 While we’ve seen more focus from the company on how Wear OS fits into its lineup of products, we haven’t yet seen another Google-branded smartwatch.
May this be a great year smart watch s activity bracelets The Google. Also, recently there Many leaks related to the expected Google Pixel Watch smart watchIt is expected that the company will present it during Google IO 2022.
We leave you the latest news related to this:
Google Pixel 7, foldable Pixel and Pixel Tablet: the least likely
Finally, these are three products we don’t think Google will show us during Google IO 2022, but hey, hope is the last thing lost.
The company is developing Pixel 7And Flip Pixel phone And the rumored Pixel Tablet, and most likely they are preparing to launch these new devices in October 2022. Therefore, we think it is still too early for Google to decide to give us some details and specifications about these products.
