We’re simply abuzz with pleasure

Over the past couple of weeks, we received an opportunity to check out every little thing new in Android 13’s first beta. For probably the most half, it looks like an improve constructed to enhance on Android 12’s complete overhaul, whereas additionally rolling again a few controversial strikes made by Android 12 final yr. A kind of adjustments brings the vibration icon again to your standing bar, and with the most recent QPR3 beta, you may test it out proper now.

At the moment, telephones operating Android 12 solely show an icon for when the gadget is about to silent, altering how the OS has labored for many of its existence. In earlier variations, Android would present icons for silent and vibrate modes — solely when the ringer was enabled would the standing bar not present a corresponding standing icon.


As noticed by Mishaal Rahman at Esper.io, Android 13’s first beta contained code hinting that Google was bringing again the vibration image, this time with a bundled toggle to permit customers to show it on or off at will. Though it wasn’t lively, the discharge of final week’s Android 12 QPR3 Beta 3 for Pixels means we do not have to attend to attempt it out — or, probably, have to attend for the discharge of Android 13’s desk construct in any respect. The brand new setting, “At all times present icon when in vibrate mode,” is situated within the Sounds & vibration menu.

Chalk this up as one other complicated factor of Google’s present beta technique for Android — ought to we contemplate this an Android 13 characteristic, the place Rahman first noticed underlying code, or an Android 12 characteristic as soon as it hits secure builds? Both method, it is clear the vibrate icon is about up for a comeback later this yr. In case you’re operating QPR3 Beta 3, you may allow it proper now. Android 13 customers should await a future beta launch.
