Work profiles for Android 13 are gradually getting new improvements. Google is trying to emphasize more and more the boundaries between work and private life. With the new updates, the company is trying to provide its users with a better experience when using the work profile. According to Android Central, there will also be new features such as a simpler design and increased productivity. We must also not forget the possibility of using your profile on several devices.
Google claims that the new updates for Android 13 should make it easier to use for those who use their work profiles every day. First, the company mentions a more efficient interface for programming applications. With this update, employees can easily customize and improve their experience on their work devices.
What will Google bring in the new update?
An updated application programming interface (API) also allows users to interfere with user settings. Google reported that the new API update opens opportunities to introduce new and better functions, especially for devices with the Android 13 system.
Another novelty that users can look forward to is the possibility of deciding whether the employee wants to open the application in work or private profile. This way you can easily separate your work matters from your private ones.
There is also a function that will allow you to choose between work or a private photo gallery. So you won’t have to worry about which photo you accidentally send to your client or boss. As we already know on Pixel devices, smart dictation recognizes your words in business communication. Google guarantees that these words will not appear in your private communication.
The possibility of using multiple devices at the same time is another novelty that we can look forward to. It will work on the principle of connecting the Phone Hub, Android, and ChromeOS systems. This way, employees can easily access work information via their smartphone and respond to it via their Chromebook.
How will privacy work?
Privacy and security are important points for Google. That is why the company paid attention to this category in the new update. Employees can manage their own safety and security settings. They can also view the rules of the company. Part of this data is shared with IT administrators who are in charge of company devices.
The Android 13 update provides IT administrators with new features, such as better control over Wi-Fi connectivity. Google is also adding a new feature that will provide records of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and password activity. Allegedly, this activity should be in accordance with the National Information Security Partnership (NIAP).
The company also confirmed the arrival of two new functions, “Lost Mode” and “Stay Private on Work Wi-Fi”. Lost Mode will be intended mainly for IT administrators, who will be given the opportunity to block and find a lost company device. It will also be interesting to display the contact on the device screen, in case someone finds it.
The second mode, called Stay Private on Work Wi-Fi, will be mainly intended for employees, which will provide them with the protection of their personal information while they are connected to the work Wi-Fi network. Both new features will be available for Android 13.
