There appears to use less transparency, more white space and more rounded corners.
Android 12 also appears to feature new privacy indicators, similar to iOS 14, which would allow users to know when an app uses your microphone, camera or location for example, via on-screen indicators. Android 12 appears to make it easier to access the information in detail, however, using specific icons for camera and microphone for example. AndroidPOlice suggests privacy options have been streamlined to make them more accessible and less confusing.
The screenshots also show a new “conversations” widget which shows “recent messages, missed calls, or activity statuses,” and may feature integration with other messaging apps such as Facebook.
