Android 12: the good, the bad and the features pinched from Motorola phones


The Android 12 beta is here – well, here for some users, depending on your device, and it’s probably not worth downloading unless you’ve got a Pixel phone. We’ve downloaded it, upgraded our phone, and sidestepped the queues to test out the new Android operating system (OS).

We set up a fresh Google Pixel 4a 5G (i.e., one that wasn’t already full of our apps and data) and downloaded the Android 12 beta, then spent several hours trawling through menus and apps trying to see what’s new. We didn’t need to spend hours, there’s not much here.
