Android 12 To Be Launched with Two New Features: A Trash Bin Option and Apps Translation

Google is known to bring some great features for mobile phone devices for the longest time and this time about two new features by Google have been discovered in the Android version 12.

The first feature among the two newly to be launched feature is something similar to what you have always seen in your desktop computers. Let us give you a hint. Where does your deleted file go? That’s right the Recycle bin. Google similar to the desktop version of the Recycle Bin is introducing its own Trash Bin for the Android devices in Android 12 and though Google itself has not announced any such feature yet, XDA-Developers dug into the code for Android 12 to uncover features that the company has not announced and found the Trash option settings.

Just for you to know the trash option kind of existed in the Android 11 version as well but the Trash API only supported the feature to hide the files instead of fully deleting them and only a few apps had the access to it. Even though the few apps had the ability to hide files that version did not support recovery of files and though Android 12 also does not support the recovery of files but individual file management apps — like Google’s can and it does have some advancement than its ancestor version.

On Android 12 when you will tap on the trash option a dialog box will pop up showing how much storage is the deleted files in the trash bin occupying and give you the option to empty the trash bin.

But the Android 12 version is not as simple as this though because the newer scoped storage settings mean that files that are “trashed” are technically just hidden in place by putting a period at the front of their file name. Plus, every different Android maker can choose to use its own file management app instead of the one offered by Google — and those apps may or may not support the new trash API. This means that while Android 12 and Google’s own Files app will support trash and recovering files it does not necessarily means that all the applications present on the software will.

This is the reason people have claimed for this version to be complicated than the Windows Desktop Versions.

The second feature that has been brought to notice is a translation option. While Android can support a wide range of languages and so can large companies who can hire professional translators for their app a lot of some developers do not have the resources that are required to make necessary translation changes.

For such small or individual developers, we have some great news because Android because there are reports circulating that Google is currently working on a framework that lets Android automatically translate the UI to the user-selected language. For the new translation feature Google added two new permissions to the current build of Android 12 – BIND_TRANSLATION_SERVICE and MANAGE_UI_TRANSLATION.

However, one thing that should be kept in mind is that the feature has not been officially launched yet and we have a history of tech giants not releasing features that were under testing and since this feature has not been released yet we are still unsure if it will make it in the upcoming version of Android.
