Google fans have just been given their very first glimpse of what’s to come in Android 12 and this is one of the biggest changes to this popular operating system in years. The US technology firm took the wraps off this shiny new software during the open keynote of its IO event and there’s a whole bunch of updates that appear very exciting.

Perhaps the biggest upgrade in Android 12 is the option to completely customise your phone. Now, we’re not talking about just switching on Dark Mode or changing the screensaver, as this will give users complete control of colours, shades and styles.

Google is going to let users run wild with their phones changing the whole way things look and feel.

The firm is calling this new feature ‘Material You’ and it will even help you pick the perfect design thanks to clever AI. Using what Google’s call colour extraction, users choose their wallpaper, and the system automatically determines which colours are dominant, which ones are complementary and which ones will look the best on the homescreen.

Speaking about the change, Google said: “Android 12 includes the biggest design change in Android’s history. We rethought the entire experience, from the colors to the shapes, light and motion. The result is that Android 12 is more expressive, dynamic and personal than ever before.”

Along with that complete way to customise things there’s also some new additions to the drop-down menu which can even also users to instantly block apps from accessing the camera and microphone.

Privacy is a main focus of Google right now with Android 12 including better ways to stop apps from tracking you across the web.
