Android 12 could let you hibernate apps, and we now know more about the feature Android 11 for OnePlus Nord

Not so long ago we heard about an intriguing feature that looks to be coming to Android 12, namely app hibernation.

While there are still a lot of unanswered questions, a few details have been seen in new Android code changes, spotted by Mishaal Rahman (editor-in-chief of XDA Developers).
