Android 15 is coming: everything we know so far

At the end of this year, we can enjoy a new update to Android. Here’s what we can tell you in advance about Android 15.

The new software may be a while away, but there is already some information about it. Google has already released two previews for developers and the first public beta of Android 15 has been released.

That means many Android enthusiasts have been diving into the new software in search of new features and improvements. Here’s all we know at this point.

Android 15’s release date.

The exact release date for Android 15 is a bit of a mystery at the moment. Normally the new software comes out sometime towards the end of summer, but sometimes it comes later. Android 12 and 14 didn’t come out until October, for example.

So while much is possible, as usual, we will have to be patient for a few more months. No doubt we will know more when summer arrives. Probably Android 15 will come out first onthe Google Pixel phones and then other manufacturers will follow at their own pace.

Android has already given some previews for the new 15, and those gave a glimpse into which Pixel devices will get an upgrade. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are the oldest devices to receive the upgrade.

The Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 series and Pixel 8 series are also getting Android 15. The Pixel 5a will lose access to new updates in August and thus will not get an upgrade. For other devices, it depends on the manufacturer’s software support. The oldest Samsung smartphone to get Android 15 is the Galaxy S21.

This is what we learn from the beta version

Google’s beta program allows users to test a first version of the software for themselves. This public data is already available, giving the first users a sneak peek.

Although we don’t get to see much on the first beta version, there are already some standouts. In Android 15, for example, there is a new feature called app archiving. This allows you to archive an app directly from Android with a button in the settings.

In addition, apps in Android 15 are automatically supported edge-to-edge. That means apps can utilize the entire screen, instead of leaving a piece over at the top where the status and navigation bar are. You no longer have to enable the feature yourself.

We don’t yet know exactly how often we can expect updates during this beta, but new major features are expected to appear by the end of June. The exact dates may still change if issues arise.

Rumors about Android 15

There is plenty of speculation on the Internet about other interesting additions. For example, widgets are rumored to return to the lock screen with Android 15. These have been gone since Android 5, while they were on iOS all along. So it’s high time they returned.

There are also whispers that Android 15 may get a major accessibility update that could be useful for anyone with visual impairments. It could include features such as larger text and icons, extra contrast and bold effects.

This latest rumor is quite extraordinary. It could be that Android 15 will come with a feature that allows you to find a lost phone when it’s turned off. All the smartphone must have is a little battery reserve.

Either way, there’s still a long way to go before Android 15 arrives on your phone. And that means there’s still a lot we don’t know at this point. Hopefully this will change in the coming months. We’ll keep you posted.
