INDIA: Google has released the Android 13 OS for smart televisions. The most recent software update for televisions powered by Google brought several new features, including enhanced performance, expanded customizability, and a few UI tweaks.

This update will be available for Android 12 smart TV owners in the coming weeks.

Before creating an AudioTrack, the smart television running Android 13 OS will be able to recognise the routing device and support the latest software version formats.

Developers can now anticipate audio attribute support for the active audio device and select the best format without starting playback, thanks to enhancements to the Audio Manager API.

When paired with external speakers and soundbars, it will ensure that games and streaming apps can deliver the highest possible audio quality.

Depending on the hardware’s capabilities, users can control particular parameters through HDMI source devices, such as refresh rate and resolution.

Android 13 for smart TVs also includes a superior power management system that reduces power utilisation when the gadget is in reserve mode.

Google has implemented additional features, including a new keyboard layout API that enables users to select various language layouts for external keyboards.

The API ensures the availability of hardware mute switch status in system privacy settings, improving user control over microphone access.

Accessibility Manager’s newly developed audio description API allows apps to query the brand-new audio description preference setting that applies to the entire system.

The new API enables developers to automatically provide audio descriptions that correspond to a user’s preferences.

Google is currently testing end-to-end encrypted RCS (Rich Communication Services) group chats. The RCS will be available to a small number of participants in the open beta programme in the coming weeks.

End-to-end message data encryption will ensure that only the people involved in the conversation can see the messages, according to Google, making one-on-one texts received via Google Messages safer and more private.
