There is a new “Turn on automatically” toggle under the Battery share settings page
Previously, reverse wireless charging was automatically enabled for a short period of time when the phone was connected to the charger. Now you can turn this feature off. Also, they removed the strange line that was under the graphics.
Pixel Launcher is working on adding a new page indicator in folders
The app has a new developer flag, SHOW_DELIGHTFUL_PAGINATION_FOLDER, the description of which reads “Enable showing the ‘delightful pagination’ which is brand new animation for folder pagination.” As you can notice, instead of dots flowing into each other, a square rolling between dots is now used.
The old “Sound and Vibration” window is back. But there is a way to enable the new one!
In Beta 2 you saw the new “Sound & vibration” dialog card, but for some reason, in Beta 3 it is turned off by default. But Mishaal Rahman shared a way to turn the new window back on using the ADB command:
settings put global settings_volume_panel_in_systemui true
Speaking of which, Google has promised to add an opening animation for this window in one of the future builds.
Here’s what’s new in Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3🧵
