As much as Android 13 has barely arrived on smartphones, it’s time to look to the future — even if that means turning a page. Explaining what Google showed (and also the bad joke), the next Android will have a change in the page back function. Next year, the operating system will allow an “animation” of the previous page when dragging back.
The tool is an “evolution” of the functionality of Android 13. Google’s latest OS allows the user to see a preview of the smartphone’s home screen so as not to close the app by accident. However, the “dry” exchange of pages seems to continue to interfere.
Android 14 will preview the previous page inside the app
The solution found by Google to solve this problem has a simple and direct step: every app will be able to show a previous page preview within the app — similar to what happens on iOS.
See how the feature demo was at the Android Dev Summit 2022:
The similarity with iOS is in this part of the preview. The format adopted for the display is different. While on the iPhone the previous page is “pulled”, showing first what is on the right of the screen, on Android 14 the current page will shrink within the application — as if it “entered” the button from which it left. Of course, since the animation will be customized, each app can recreate its own model🇧🇷 The example used in the event was made in a “Google Calendar”.
In the presentation, Rebecca Gutterridge, an Android software engineer, explains that the act of accidentally leaving the app was baptized by the team as “falsing” – “falsing” in direct translation. To bring such a rapid evolution to falsing, looks like Google paid a lot of attention to functionality during the Android 13 beta🇧🇷 Including, should have released this functionality along with the current operating system.
