Tiramisu: Google Unveils The First Preview Of Android 13 Under The Name Of Tiramisu

The first phase of developer previews will take place in February and March, with at least two releases.

Google has released the first developer preview of its upcoming mobile operating system, Android 13, which focuses on privacy and productivity, and is working towards stability in June.

The first preview is the first opportunity, currently only for developers, to find out the version that will succeed the current Android 12, as reported by the American company in a statement for Android developers.

The news of Android 13 focuses on the privacy and security of the users of the operating system, but also on the productivity features for developers, although the company will continue to work on Android 12L for mobiles with large screens. Google has shared its plans for the development of Android 13 ahead of its release. The first phase of developer previews will take place in February and March, with at least two releases.

The first Android 13 betas are expected to arrive in April and, after several releases, the stability of the new operating system will be reached in June, before the arrival of its final version.


Although it has recognized that it is "only the beginning of Android 13", Google has announced the main novelties present in the new version of its mobile system in its first preview for developers, with which it seeks that they adapt their software.' before releasing the stable version.

At the level of privacy and security, Android 13 incorporates two great novelties with respect to its previous version. The first of these is a new application programming interface (API) for the photo selection tool, with which users can transfer photos and videos between apps more securely. In addition, the new version of Android also has a new permission in the WiFi settings, which allows applications that need to access nearby connected devices to no longer have to also ask for location permission, in cases where they do not need to be necessary.

Developer productivity is another of the central aspects that Google has worked on for Android 13, and the company has added six new features to the system focused on this purpose. Among these novelties, the arrival of themes for application icons stands out, as one more step in the Material You design that has already debuted with Android 12. With these themes, users can choose different icon designs, which, for example, adapt automatically depending on the tone of the chosen tone, or if the dark mode is used.

Another addition is the arrival of different language preferences for each application, oriented especially for polyglot users, and that allows the system language not to determine that of the apps. As for the rest of the functions for developers, they will be able to have a quick settings API in Android 13 that allows them to be incorporated into notifications, a 200% improvement in the separation of texts in boxes, new programmable shadows or the arrival of updates with Java 11 of the OpenJDK 11 library.


Google has also presented a series of new features in Android 13 aimed at better compatibility of applications, as well as to have the most up-to-date system.

With Android 13, Google will expand the sections of the system that can be updated through Google Play as part of its Project Mainline initiative, which seeks to provide a more consistent and secure environment for apps and the faster arrival of functions to users. Among the novelties that will come directly to users of old versions of Android thanks to Google Play are the new photo selector, OpenJDK 11 or new Bluetooth and broadband modules.

Android 13 is also moving forward with better optimization on devices like tablets, flip phones, and Chrome OS computers, and Google is looking to app developers to make them multitasking. With the new version of Android, developers will also have changes aimed at facilitating testing and debugging or' debugging', with new options that can be activated from the compatibility settings.


Officially, the operating system will be called Android 13, but internally it is known by the keyword Tiramisu. The company has added the name of the Italian dessert explicitly in the first developer preview of Android 13, which was released on Tuesday.

The unofficial name of Android 13 had been considered since last summer, when the XDA Developers portal found the first mention of Tiramisu in a line of code, which indicated the message 'Platform Version_Condename is being updated from T to Tiramisu'. Now, 9to5Google has detected that in the settings of the first preview of Android 13, 'Tiramisu' appears under 'the phrase ' Android version'.

Generally, a letter is usually included in this space. For example, the current operating system, Android 12, was identified internally with the letter 'S', from Snow Cone , which could be translated as snow cone or slushie. In this way, it is not the first time that Google names the versions of its mobile operating system with desserts, since in its beginnings it used these nomenclatures in alphabetical order instead of just numbers.

Therefore, the first operating system developed by the Mountain Viewers was called Android Apple Pie (apple pie), the next Android Banana Bread (banana bread), and so on. However, since 2019 it stopped officially referring to its operating systems with desserts and began to do so only internally, continuing with the corresponding alphabetical order.

It was then that the operating system officially reached the public as Android 10, although its developers called it Quince Tart (quince cake), because the letter that touched it was 'Q'.
