Privacy dashboard is an overview screen to show you what information has been accessed and which apps accessed it last. It will also consist of explanations as to why these apps accessed the permissions. The privacy dashboard will be located inside of the Settings panel of the device.

The dedicated microphone toggles will allow users to disable the software from accessing the microphones or cameras. You will be able to grant access to the apps manually using the quick toggles. Additionally, indicators will now show up inside of the status bar while an app is using the camera or microphone.

There is also a new notification pop-up set for when an app is trying to copy or paste information to or from your clipboard.

The second beta build also adds in a new internet panel, which has replaced the traditional Wi-Fi controls. A single tap on the Internet option would bring up a list of available and nearby Wi-Fi connections, including toggles for mobile data connections. Long pressing it opens the new Internet settings screen.


Android 12 Beta 2 is currently rolling out to the following devices:

Other OEM’s taking part in the Android 12 Beta include OnePlus, AsusiQOOOppoRealmeTCLTecnoXiaomi and ZTE.

  1. […] The idea of stuffing an ultra-powerful chipset in an affordable phone has been done and dusted in the last few years. You will get class-leading performance from these phones but you have to compromise with the overall experience. Case in point is the Poco F1, Poco X3 Pro, Apple iPhone SE (2020), Realme X3, and more. All of these either use cheap parts or are based on phones from yesteryears. That’s not the case with the iQOO 7 Legend. Also Read – Android 12 beta 2 rolling out: New privacy features, tweaked design and more […]
