Android 12 DP3 Gets A New 4×4 App Grid For Your Homescreen

5 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

The third developer preview for Android 12 was released today and in it there's a new 4×4 app grid for Pixel launcher users.
While the 4×4 app grid itself is not new, as it's present in Android 11, this particular version of it is new and changes things up a bit. Keep in mind that this is a Pixel Launcher specific thing.

Google plans to implement a “Safe Mode” for Android WebView to prevent future crashes

Google plans to implement a “Safe Mode” for Android WebView to prevent future crashes

5 monthes ago   |   By Phandroid

You may remember last month when your phone refused to run any apps, even though there weren't any updates completed, and it didn't matter whether you were using a Pixel or not. That's because Android's WebView component was not working correctly, and lasted for eight hours before Google issued the fix. Some users were incorrectly informed to uninstall that WebView component from their phones, but that is not a great solution and leads to even more issues. Now that Google has had some time to think about what happened, the company is working on a new “Safe Mode” implementation for WebView...

Google has just released Android 12 Developer Preview 3, which should be the last developer preview for Android 12. Next month, we should be getting our first beta. Which should also coincide with Google I/O, which is set for May 18-20.
