The new Android 13 brings more customization features to the Bedtime mode. The feature will also enable users to select specific images and videos that they want to let apps access. Apps will now have to seek 'explicit' permission from the user to send notifications with the new Android OS version.

A messaging app can also be mirrored from a phone to a Chromebook in the near future, according to the company. As part of Android 13, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) audio has also been added, allowing users to hear better synced audio with reduced delay.
