Google Play Protect Android 13

Google has already rolled out the September 2022 Play System Update for Android devices. But it looks like, the company has saved some features at that time to reveal later this month. In the latest edition, the Google Play system update adds support for the Play Protect information to the Android 13 interface.

The company began the September 2022 update with improvements for the Google Kids Space. Thereafter, the US manufacturer introduced some new and reflective features for the Wear OS with unique alerts for compromised passwords.

Now, once again, Google has entered into the Play System to make it more reliable and convenient. But this time, the change initiates from the latest interface – Android 13.

According to the official Google reports, phones running on the Android 13 operating system will display Play Protect information. Users will be able to access this feature in the Settings menu > Security and Privacy Settings section.

How is this feature useful? Consequently, Play Protect will inspect the behavior of the application on the device. Besides, it will inform you about the basic details of the app before you install them from the Google Play Store. Hence, you will be able to detect whether the particular app is suitable or harmful for your gadget.

Track the app installation activity

Apart from this change to Android 13, Google has also implemented some finer techniques that let you trace the app installation process. This function also falls in the Play Protect category. Ultimately, the company has expanded the details displayed on the Play Store listings.

These details might be regarding app permissions, changing policies, and so on. Aside, you will be able to check the installation status of the app on your other devices with the help of your smartphone.

Currently, the latest versions of the Play System and Play Store (v32.4) do not exhibit any new progress. Perhaps, the company might be testing these features on its server, and could soon bring them to the real surface. But, the good news is that the app downloading will become quite more productive and convenient for Android users with the new Play System update.

Android 13 to improve software updates on all devices

Published

Android 13 software updates devices

Google has taken some mandatory steps for the devices that will upgrade to the latest Android interface. Eventually, Android 13 will support improved and seamless software updates for smartphone devices with the help of a virtual A/B system.

Google makes sure that all its devices are running on updated systems. It constantly rolls out new builds that shield your smart gadget from the latest vulnerabilities. Besides, it provides freshly released patches to secure the internal system.

However, some users don’t like to keep their devices up-to-date on a regular basis. Maybe the fear of interface breakage or damage and deletion of data are the reasons behind such actions. Thus, most of the users remain inactive in the updates section.

Android 13 – Virtual A/B system

Consequently, for such users and devices, Google is returning to the speed up track of software updates with Android 13. The company has introduced the A/B virtual scheme and added support for duplicate partitions as A and B forms. This scheme will serve as Seamless Updates to the users.

As a result, instead of turning off your device and booting the update, the Seamless Updates will conduct the installation in the background even when the Android device is running. Thereafter, it will opt for a quick reboot, and voila, your smart gadget upgrade is complete!

This will make the software updates easier, faster, and more efficient for Android devices. Although, tech makers like Samsung do not support such schemes, so far. Therefore, Google has made virtual A/B support compulsory for certifying GMS on smartphones that will release with Android 13.

Earlier, the US manufacturer made this rule with traditional Android 11. But at that time, Google has taken its steps back and just updated the Android 11 Compatibility Definition Document (CDD). Since there was no enforcement, many OEMs took this statement lightly.

Though this time, things have become more strict. Google mentioned that companies will only be able to provide Google Mobile Services to their consumers when they will add the support of a virtual A/B system on their devices. Accordingly, every user will be able to enjoy the experience of Seamless Updates after this implementation.
