OPPO is currently rolling out ColorOS 12 based on Android 12 for its eligible devices. The update brought with it many new features and improvements to ColorOS. Although many OPPO devices are still waiting for the Android 12 (ColorOS 12) update, Google has already released the Android 13 beta.
In February 2022, Google released the Android 13 developer preview for select devices, which gave us a preview of Android 13 features. These features include better colour theming, better media file permissions and new styles and wallpapers. These features will most likely come to Android 13 on ColorOS 13 as well. This might make many OPPO users wonder if their device will get the Android 13 update or not. Read more to find out.
The Android 13 Beta is available to the public. It is rated to bring up a new permission system for media files. Users can now allow or deny access to specific media files rather than allowing or denying all media files at once. This means that one can allow or deny an app to access audio files or photo files, or video files specifically, one by one.
