The tech giant said that the upcoming Android 13 operating system should be equipped with the feature sometime by the end of this year.

Some users can test the new tool via Android 13 Beta 3, which was released on Wednesday.

Android prides itself on two key areas: privacy and security, the company said in a statement.

And this new upgrade builds on these two areas to help users protect their media storage from old apps.

“With Android 13, we’ve built on our core themes of privacy and security, developer productivity, and tablet and big screen support,” said Dave Burke, VP of engineering at Android.

Burke noted that there’s “a lot to explore in Android 13, from privacy features like the new notification permission and photo picker to productivity features.”

More permission settings

Another new feature for Android 13 includes users being alerted when apps try to post notifications by default.

The Android 13 system also allows users to check their notification settings just by tapping on a notification.

App Compatibility

Android said in its statement that it is heavily focused on “app compatibility” for 13 OS.

This means that an app developed for a previous operating system “runs as intended on a new version of the platform,” Android explained.

“With each release, we make integral changes to the platform that improve privacy and security, as well as the overall user experience across the operating system.”

“To test your app for compatibility, simply install your production app from Google Play or another source on a device running Android 13 Beta 3.”

Other updates will focus on Android tablet and large-screen products, as well as overall platform stability.
