Ahh — can you smell it? The scent of freshly baking Android software is very much in the air this week, as Android 12’s first official developer preview teases us with a tiny taste of what’s to come.
Google launched the inaugural public version of Android 12 last week, and the internet’s many software-sniffing sleuths have been hard at work pokin’ around and clawing at its many crevices to uncover every last hint of the treats lurking within.
So far, Android 12 doesn’t look like much — and for good reason: This latest Android version really is a true developer preview, with mostly just technical changes aimed at, y’know, developers. It actually makes an awful lot of sense, even if Android previews in the past have generally been a little more elaborate early on.
