Google Android is one of the vast subjects to which the company is constantly counting new elements. In the latest edition, Google has decided to make the Android system more creative and fun by adding the all-new Unicode 15.0 emojis.
This gets a confirmation from the side of the Google Creative Director of Emoji – Jennifer Daniel. She has shared the recent actions going on the emoji spectrum. Alongside, she briefs the information regarding the latest Unicode 15.0 edition.
To begin with, Jennifer tells about the inclusion of the Unicode feature. It consists of 15 fresh additions to the emoji library. For instance, leftward and rightward hands, shaking face, ginger, donkey, moose, goose, jellyfish, pea pod, and new heart colors.
Not only just in words, but the director has also led us to the design concept of these 21 new emojis. With a sophisticated layout and eye-catching colors, these mini images are quite interesting to glance at.
NOTO Emoji – New Addition!
Apart from these emojis, Jennifer also brings our notice to the Noto Emoji. Eventually, these emojis are an open-source emoji font that will support Chrome and other Google products. Initially, these emojis were in black and white textures. However, now they fully support the color version.
Wait, the list does not end here. Apart from the Unicode emojis, Google is also trying to bring on some animated figures for the Android system. Consequently, users will find more than 200 types of animated emojis. Check them HERE.
Aside from the website, you can also find these emojis in the latest build of Google Messages. Thus, the upcoming updates for Android are going to bring a huge packet of entertainment and innovation for consumers.
Although it’s not possible to resist the temptation for using and exploring this amazing field of emojis. Yet, the report says that we could only find these emojis by the December update of Android.
Google Play system update adds Android 13 Play Protect information
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
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.

Google requires atleast 2GB RAM to run Android 13
Google and several other smartphone manufacturers keep on bringing such devices that can benefit users in every manner. Giving a good start from the high-end models, the companies also release cost-effective devices with limited features that can fit into the budget of consumers. But looks like the new Google Mobile Services (GMS) policy with Android 13 might put these devices in danger with new requirements.
According to the Twitter handle of Android expert Jason Bayton, Google has updated its minimum hardware requirements policy for the GMS (Google Mobile Services) with Android 13. Ultimately, devices must have more than 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage to carry on the benefits of the Google Mobile Services.
From #Android13, new devices with less than 2GB RAM cannot preload GMS. Any new Go devices must have at least 16GB storage.
Devices not meeting these requirements today on 12 must not upgrade to 13.

This also means that those devices running on 2GB of RAM and having only 16GB of internal storage won’t be able to enjoy the features of GMS. Alternatively, this statement opens the probability of such devices becoming a past thing, soon.
Jason also mentions that fulfilling these requirements is quite important for the devices. Or else, they won’t be able to greet the Android 13 on their doorsteps. Thus, if you want to upgrade your device to the latest Android 13 interface, make sure that your handset meets all the conditions for preloading GMS.
Even if your Android device is eligible for Android 13, it won’t receive the new update until it covers all the eligibility criteria regarding the GMS policy.
Not for the first time!
Yes, it’s not the first time when Google has kept a barrier in front of the tech makers for preloading Google Mobile Services on low RAM models. The US company keeps on rejuvenating its policies so that the devices and applications could become compatible with the newest operating system.
The company has taken the same step for the Android 11 devices as well. As a result, devices with less than 512MB of RAM would not be able to step into the preloading of GMS anymore.
Hence to keep supplying the benefits of Google services to the consumers, smartphone companies have to offer a minimum of 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage to their handy gadgets.
