Android 12 beta 2 feature makes picture-in-picture a slick experience Android 12 color theme

The second Android 12 Developer Preview – the Android 12 developer beta, as it were – is here, bringing smoother picture-in-picture transitions, additional privacy settings for notifications on lockscreen, and other perks. 

While this preview does, as the name suggests, have a ton of things that only concern app developers, some perks should excite every Android user, as laid out in an Android Developers Blog post. When swiping up-to-home while watching media, the transition to picture-in-picture mode happens while you’re making the gesture, for instance.
