When it comes to Android, things are always changing. What was once the preserve of big, hulking flagship phones is now available on tiny, budget-friendly devices. The latest version of Android is always right around the corner, and there are always new features and updates to get excited about. So what can we expect from Android in 2023?

Android 13 is the upcoming thirteenth major release and the eighteenth version of the Android mobile operating system. Announced on February 24, 2023, it is the successor to Android 12 and is scheduled to be released in the second quarter of 2023. Android 13 is a major update that brings a number of new features and improvements to the Android platform.

Another major change in Android 13 is the introduction of a new notification history feature. This feature allows users to view and manage their notifications in a dedicated history panel. The history panel can be accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen. 

One of the most notable changes in Android 13 is the introduction of a new dark mode. Dark mode is a system-wide setting that allows users to enable a dark theme for all supported apps and system UI elements. Dark mode has been a highly requested feature for Android and is finally making its debut in Android 13.

We can also expect to see some changes to the way Android handles updates. Right now, Android updates are a bit of a mess, with different devices getting different versions of the operating system at different times. This can be frustrating for users, and it's something Google is looking to change.

One way they're doing this is by working on a new system called Project Mainline. This would allow Google to push updates to specific parts of the operating system, rather than having to wait for manufacturers to push out a full update. This would make updates much faster and easier to install.

Android 13 also includes a number of other new features and improvements such as support for foldable displays, a new sharing UI, improvements to the camera app, and more.
