The double-tap feature, which was tried by Google in the beta versions of Android 11, may appear with Android 12. But what is the Back Tab-like double-tap or Columbus feature that came on iPhone models with iOS 14 and how does it work? work?
Some Android 12 features have been leaked, the double tap feature is on the way
Android 12 features started to appear. Although the developer preliminary version has not yet been released, some developers who have reached the Android 12 source code have revealed some features related to the operating system. Accordingly, the double tap feature can become a reality with Andoroid 12.
However, this function has been tried before for Android 11. Google later decided not to enable this functionality. The main reason for this was that the feature, called the Columbus feature by the developers, struggled to separate clicks on the Android 11 side.
In the experiments done by the developers, especially double tap is expected to run the Google Assistant application by default. However, it is possible to use this function for many actions, such as setting alarms, starting the camera, playing video, taking screenshots. Again, users are given the option to turn this feature off.
Google is currently working on the Android 12 operating system to let users record this movement so that accidental touch and push movements are not detected as double taps. Thus, Android 12, which detects your touch sensitivity, can separate several touches from double taps.
Other Android 12 features leaked
Some developers also found that Google is trying a new feature in the Android 12 operating system. The split screen feature presented earlier becomes much more useful with Android 12.
Google appears to be preparing a completely redesigned split-screen mode for the Android 12 split-screen feature called App Pairs.
Thanks to this feature on the applications used, the operating system will now see the applications used at the same time as a single application. So the aim is to avoid excessive pressure of two applications on the processor and RAM at the same time.
Another Android 12 feature that has emerged is the restricted network mode feature that allows apps to restrict Wi-Fi access. With this feature, users seem to be able to choose which application to connect to the wireless network. For now, it’s not clear exactly how the feature will provide benefits in the subdivisions.
