The largest spotlight of the present Android 12 system is that it has overhauled the earlier variations. However because it normally occurs, this model isn’t going to be an all-around excellent working system. It appears this mission is ready on the next-gen Google OS, Android 13. As an illustration, Android 12 laid the required basis for Bluetooth Low Vitality Audio. The latter is a brand new normal for low-power audio transmission over Bluetooth. And although Android 12 launched the Bluetooth LE Audio API, its builders nonetheless ought to do a variety of work to allow full help for Bluetooth LE Audio. Nonetheless, the current commits submitted to the Android Open Supply Undertaking (AOSP) present that the tech’s full help could lastly are available Android 13.

Not too long ago, Mishaal Rahman discovered that Google has merged the commits that add an LC3 codec sort (LE Audio) for Bluetooth A2DP inside Developer choices. Let’s clarify it in easy phrases. LC3 (Low Complexity Communications Codec) is a brand new high-quality, low-power audio code in Bluetooth LE Audio. It guarantees to carry higher-quality audio even at low knowledge charges. However as Mishaal identified, it’s nonetheless uncertain whether or not these patches are sufficient to allow full help for Bluetooth LE Audio. Even when so, there may be each motive to count on the codec to return by way of the subsequent main launch: Android 13.
LE Audio is a brand new normal. Attributable to superior applied sciences, it allows audio transmission over the Bluetooth Low Vitality (LE) radio. The truth is, this isn’t new. We noticed it at CES final yr. Bluetooth SIG was speaking about it when detailing the Bluetooth 5.2 normal. Nonetheless, earlier than Bluetooth 5.2 model, LE was solely used for knowledge switch. Thus, it didn’t permit audio transmission. For customers, crucial traits of LE Audio are the decrease energy consumption, Multi-Stream Audio help for an improved audio expertise on actually wi-fi earphones. Nonetheless, we’d additionally like to say that its potential to broadcast a number of audio streams to an infinite variety of audio sink units.

Properly, not that a lot is thought in regards to the Android 13 model. However we all know that its inside identify is Tiramisu.

In keeping with one of many out there paperwork, the builders name Android 13 Tiramisu.
