Some hidden features of Android 12 for everyone

Finally Android 12 beta is available for everyone with the compatible device. With this new release for Android 12, google announced some new features that was expected but this time google is focusing on improving user experience and more enhanced privacy control. There are few option that are available with this new release of Android but are unnoticed from the common user eyes. So lets take a look over these features:-


Notification History in Android 12

All you have to do in Android 12 is scroll to the bottom of your notification shade to find a new History button. When you tap it, you'll see recently cleared notifications as well as alerts from the previous 24 hours.

If you see Manage instead of History, that's because Notification History isn't turned on. Enable it by tapping on Manage, then select Notification History and slide the switch to the On position.  

One-Hand Mode in Android 12

It may not be a highlighting feature of this new update but still one of the best google added this time. When you have a big device like Galaxy Note 20 ultra or OnePlus 9 Pro then having one had mode option will make it easy for you to operate your device with one hand. 

Head over to Settings > System > Gestures > One-Handed Mode and slide the switch to the On position.

Dedicated Gaming Mode 

If you love playing games on your Android device then this is one of the major change for you. Google has brought this feature to improve gaming performance on all android devices running on Android 12.

Go to Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb > Schedules. Once there, check the box next to Game Mode to turn it on. You can tap on the settings gear icon to view the various options that are included with Game Mode, such as displaying your current FPS, screen recording toggle or live streaming on YouTube. 

New app layout for Pixel Devices


The app grid on your phone's home screen is typically 4x4, 5x5, or 6x6 (or some similar combination). However, in Android 12 on the Pixel 5, there's a new app grid option called 2x2 that appears to be a joke at first glance. I assume this is limited to Pixel phones, but I hope other phone manufacturers adopt it because it's a huge accessibility feature for those who require larger app icons.
