Google will be streamlining the way its users reveal links, images, and movies throughout apps in Google android 12 by restricting third-party apps from replacing the particular native Android Sharesheet, as per a report. Android Sharesheet will be the pop-up menu that appers from the bottom of the screen to allow users to share information (links, images, videos, memes) through a number of apps installed on a smartphone. The UI of the Android Sharesheet differs from app to application. The report says it is because Google did not enforce UI consistency for the Sharesheet up until now.

Android 11 users can get very different giving menus across apps. Those who want the same sharing menus on all apps may install third-party apps such as Sharedr to bypass the Android Sharesheet UI completely. But Android 12 will have a consistent sharing menu throughout apps, which also means that third-party apps like Sharedr won’t be allowed to replace the Android Sharesheet UI, according to the document by XDADevelopers. The report says that this system on Android 12 did not show the prompt to pick between Sharedr as well as the Android Sharesheet and opened up the Android Sharesheet by default, which implies that Google is not allowing third-party apps in Android 12 from changing the default Sharesheet.

At Google I/O annual developers conference, the organization announced a string of changes that will debut with Android 12. The forthcoming OS version will bring a considerable UI refresh, which will come with an interface that can be personalised with a custom colour palette plus new widgets that can be resized with much greater flexibility. The interface will also include fluid motion and brand-new animations. These changes depend on Material You, a new design language which is an improve to the existing Material Style.
