Google announced Subtract The second beta version of Android 12 across Pixel phones.
The beta version adds more Android 12 features that were announced at last month’s Google I/O conference. But it was not included in the first beta version.
It also has two newer features, including a new way to manage your Internet connection.
And in the quick settings, Android 12 now has a new button called “Internet” that replaces the old wireless button.
When you tap it, you get a screen that lets you switch between wireless networks and also shows your current cellular connection (which you can also switch).
Google says: The idea is to help users switch between Internet providers and troubleshoot network connectivity issues more easily.
Google’s post asks readers to tell it what you think about this feature, indicating that this user experience may not be a sure thing.
Google often comes up with new UI ideas and then backtracks on them during Android beta.
Android 12 also displays a “read clipboard notification”, which appears any time the app is reading the current clipboard.
It appears when an app reads the clipboard from something you copied into another app. In other words, it won’t pop up annoyingly if you copy and paste within the same app.
Unlike other notifications, this appears to appear from the bottom of the screen, similar to a feature that first appeared on the iPhone, as more people realized that apps were requesting clipboard content when they shouldn’t.
There are a few other features that Google announced but didn’t include in the first beta.

Android 12 features:
The system user interface now attempts to display complementary colors from your wallpaper. It also appears that Google is willing to commit to keeping the Quick Tap feature, which lets you set a custom action when you tap the back of the phone.
Google has also added a privacy dashboard, which allows the user to see how often apps ask to use the phone’s microphone, camera, and location.
Google is also working on previously announced privacy features related to the microphone and camera.
When either is turned on, an indicator is displayed in the upper-right part of the status bar.
And now on Android 12 there is also a toggle in the quick settings to turn off these sensors.
And if you disable your microphone or camera in quick settings, the system asks if you want to turn them back on the next time an app tries to access one.
With this release, Google is keeping pace with the roadmap for the release of Android 12 this fall. More beta versions are expected before the final release.
