In January this year, Google submitted a code change to the AOSP project, which added an App automatic sleep function, which is expected to be implemented in Android 12.
According to the latest test of foreign media XDA, an automatic sleep option has appeared in the preview version of Android 12 .
When you open “Settings” -> “Apps”, on the App info page of each app, there is an Unused apps group, under the group there is only one option called ” remove permissions and free up space (remove permissions and free up space) “.
The function description states that if the app has not been used in a few months, it will:
- Remove authorized permissions;
- Prohibit sending notifications;
- Delete temporary files and free up space.
Naijatechnews understands that according to the submitted code, the vdex/odex file will be released after the app is automatically hibernated . The vdex file contains the uncompressed DEX file, and the odex file is the executable file after the APK is extracted.
This feature is expected to be implemented in Android 12, but it has not yet been fully determined.
