There were times when a new major Android update meant tons of new existing stuff, but they have long passed.
@ConnyDuck are the emojis not enough new and exciting enough? /s
@athairbirb oh wait let me check
omg they look all different 😨
@ConnyDuck both android and ios are very mature, and there is not a lot to add onto them nowadays. nowadays its mostly just polishing
@toast yeah, its a good thing, but its also boring
@ConnyDuck agreed. a good ol' ui refresh wouldn't kill anybody
@ConnyDuck these days it's "here's how we will redesign recents menu again and how we will lock everything down even more.
@ConnyDuck I think we're at the stage where glass slab phones have pretty much matured & Android as an OS has too. I don't expect a big flurry of innovation until foldables and/or XR really take off. Until then, I think it's a worthwhile endeavor to refactor and improve all the underlying layers 👍
