Android Updates welcome almost-forgotten audio switching feature


September’s package of Google System Updates went public a couple weeks ago, though as a matter of fact, we had reported on a lot of the features within earlier on. It turns out, however, that we have a couple of stragglers that came across the finish line late, so we wanted to make sure you knew what was officially coming with which component update.

Google has been expanding access across several regions to its Play Games for PC beta which lets users load up Android games on their Windows machines. With a late Play Store update to v32.4, the company seems to be catching up to itself as it will now list the specific availability for titles depending on the market the user is in.

Back in July, Google introduced smart audio switching support which let Android determine where to route audio when dealing with multiple multipoint Bluetooth devices. That support was limited to the Pixel Buds Pro at first, but it was supposed to spread to third-party hardware from the likes of JBL and Sony at some point. Consider this point that point — it’s with Google Play services version 31.22. No, we don’t know why such an old update for a feature that should’ve been rolling out months ago is getting appended to September’s updates now, but at least it has been duly noted.

Samsung has a history of rolling out timely Android updates for its smartphones. The company has now started rolling out Android 12 update for its two year old smartphone. The South Korean smartphone maker has started rolling out Android 12 update for Samsung Galaxy A11. Along with the Android 12 update, the smartphone will also received Samsung One UI 4.1.
The Android 12 update for Samsung Galaxy A11 comes with firmware version A115FXXU3CVI3 and it also brings security patch for the month of August 2022. With the Android 12 update, the Galaxy A22 users will also receive Samsung One UI 4.1 update. With the One UI 4.0, users will get improved stock apps, Material You dynamic colour themes, lock screen widgets, dedicated quick settings toggles for switching off-camera and microphone access and new widget designs. The update is also claimed to enhance the security and privacy of the devices.

The dual SIM smartphone came out of the box with Android 11  ..
