Google has always been in the habit of working with beta versions, released to developers in order to bring the best possible experience to its users. With the arrival of the Pixel phone line in the market in 2016, the company has a powerful hardware base to test everything for free.
Now comes the information that the brand new Android 12 Beta is the most successful trial version in history so far. The information was revealed by none other than the vice president of Android engineering, Dave Burke, via Twitter, shortly after the release of the operating system’s Beta 2.
Android 12’s beta is by far our most downloaded/installed beta ever. Speaking of which, Beta 2 is available today: https://t.co/VR8CtXKWkZ

So far, Burke hasn’t provided any numbers to confirm this claim, but, as a reliable source as he is, it can be understood that the company has been receiving very important feedbacks to make Android 12 plump.
Remember that this is Google’s most significant launch in terms of design in recent years — the previous two versions hardly changed anything in this regard. Material You, for example, will allow you to completely customize the system based on your wallpaper, including the appearance of supported apps.
In addition, the company promises fundamental improvements on the subject of privacy and security. Android 12 will report which features of your mobile phone a particular application accesses, such as camera, microphone, location, photos and others. Thus, the user can decide whether to keep access or block everything to preserve their data.
