This week, Google will showcase the novelties of its ecosystem at the I / O conference. This edition of 2021 is something special. In fact, the 2020 I / O conference was canceled due to the pandemic.
In addition, Google I / O 2021 marks a certain normality at Google, even if we have to be content with a virtual event for the time being. In addition, Google could use the conference to present a comprehensive overhaul of the Android interface.
As a reminder, Android 12 has already been previewed, which gives us some insight into the new features. Ordinarily, Google should say more on Google I / O. And among the most important announcements would be the new interface of the operating system.
In any case, this is suggested by YouTuber Jon Prosser, a source who is generally very knowledgeable. This indicates that he was able to access a presentation through Google. Mountain View would like to highlight three things: “A Great New Experience,” “Better Privacy and Security,” and “All of Your Devices Work Better Together.”
Jon Prosser also shared some items that will appear on the new Android 12 UI such as: For example, a new media playback widget, a new brightness control, and stacked notifications.

Of course, Google brings some new features to the Android interface every year. According to Jon Prosser, Android 12 would be one of the key updates to the mobile operating system when it comes to this user interface.
The YouTuber also shared a video that he believed would be an official video presentation of Android 12 from Google. We see other elements, such as a new display for notifications, a new design for the keyboard or a new lock screen with a bigger clock.
Confirmation (or not) this week
Of course, caution should be exercised while waiting for Google’s I / O conference as all of this information is not official. It should be noted, however, that in 2020 Apple developed important new features for the iOS user interface, such as: B. New widget locations or the application drawer equivalent. It would also be logical for Google, for its part, to offer an extensive update of the user interface for Android.
Google’s I / O conference begins May 18th and ends May 20th. And the company has already announced that it will make important announcements during this event. New features are also expected for the Google Assistant.
Unfortunately, we still have to wait before we can take advantage of the new features of Android 12. In fact, after the preview phase, the new version of the operating system will still go through a beta phase before the stable version is released later. second semester.
