You Can Now Transfer Media Playback & More On Google Android 13

Google released Android 12 few months ago, and the Android 12L is still in beta state. Now, details about Android 13 (internally codenamed ‘Tiramisu’) has surfaced. This is said to bring ‘tap to transfer’ feature for media playback and make QR code scanning easier.

In a Google UI demo mock-up posted by Android Police, for parts of the “Media TTT” workflow has mentions of “tap to transfer”.  The screenshot shows “Move closer to play on DEMO” and “Playing on DEMO” with Undo button.

This could help you move media between your phone and other devices, like how it works between iPhone and HomePod.

Android 13 is also expected to bring improved QR code scanning. The screenshot mockups show “Show QR Scanner” in the lock screen section of Settings. This will probably allow you to access the QR Scanner from the lock screen instead of launching the camera app. Android 13 is also said to add a QR code Quick Settings tile.

Google is expected to start public testing of Android 13 sometime mid 2022, which is just a few months away.
