Expected from September, the next version of Android, with the code name Tiramisu, will as always bring its share of novelty, the outlines of which we are beginning to see thanks to the various Beta versions available. We also know which smartphones will be compatible with this new version.
What new features are expected with Android 13?
If Android 13 does not look like a major update in view of the first info from the Beta program, with Google we are never safe from one or two last minute surprises.
One of the biggest announcements around Android took place during the last Google i/O and concerns the return of the famous Google Wallet which will replace Google Paywhich had itself already replaced… Google Wallet… One step forward, two steps back, in view of the undeniable success of Apple Wallet, Google decided to take inspiration from it to offer a much more complete application, capable of storing on a single application your payment cards, loyalty cards, your plane tickets, your vaccination certificates (Covid type) or even the new biometric identity documents for the countries which wish them .
Among all the other features, we also note the appearance of the TARE function (The Android Resource Economy), which should offer our smartphones better autonomy by optimizing background tasks in particular, but also a new flashlight with intensity adjustment, spatial audio, better language management application by application or a brand new one finally optimized for tablets.
Big screen, big changes. We’re optimizing the Android experience for larger tablet screens. 20+ Google apps will get makeovers so they’re easier to use and easier on the eyes. Many of your other fave apps are getting updates too. #GoogleIO pic.twitter.com/qbfs0DLkZM

With Beta 2 of Android 13, we were also able to discover the function Media TTT (Tap To Transfer)which makes it easy to transfer a multimedia file to another nearby source, such as a connected speaker, a TV box, a tablet or a smartphone of course.
Other interesting new features, the highlighting of the QR code reader, the possibility of quickly changing Google accounts or even multiple ergonomic improvements, whether on the side of the taskbar or the design of many system applications.
