Google I/O 2022 – This is what I want to know about Android 13

Google I/O 2022 kicks off today at 11AM PT/1PM ET/6PM GMT. It’s a big event for fans of Android and Google’s range of other software products. This is where we hear about Google’s plans for next year around its portfolio.

So as we stand on the cusp of the full unveiling of Android 13, I’m left with a burning desire. While I like the changes made so far, like permissions and an iOS-like photo picker, I want to hear about Google’s stance on third-party app tracking. Honestly, I want Android to take a whole page out of Apple’s playbook.

Android doesn’t have the greatest reputation when it comes to privacy and tracking. Google collects a lot of information about you, and as far as I know, third-party apps can do the same to lesser degrees, even when you’re not specifically using that app. While Apple still collects heaps of data, it’s strictly putting an end to this third-party nonsense with its App Tracking initiative in iOS 14.5.
