Google leads with Android 12 the new The materials you design One of the updates that, from a visual point of view, is one of the biggest updates to Android in recent years. But in case there is a lot of light, there is also a shadow: as announced now, Google will remove a number of options from the operating system for Material You that was only introduced with Android 11.
Design has played a very large role for Google for a number of years, but users are rarely given the opportunity to interfere with rendering and rely on automation: this is no different with Android 12 with its upcoming Material Design, which has already been shown in some apps and has been widely announced. Wide: Colorful and clear shapes and borders will play a major role and the entire screen will be refreshed.
We noticed a few days ago that Android 12 removed the option to set style. But what at first glance appeared to be a bug or missing feature is actually what is meant: a developer at Google has confirmed that these customization options have been removed in favor of your material. It remains to be seen if they will come back or not, but one should not count on them rolling out Android 12 to Pixel smartphones.
The custom style features (font, icon shape, icon pack, and accent color) in R are being replaced by our new dynamic themes feature in S. We see the new dynamic themes feature as more modern and smarter. A simple and fun experience that we hope all users will enjoy.
