About Android 12 Guides
Since Android Lollipop (Android 5), Android guides are organized into two groups:
- Generic Android guides.
- Android guides for new features of each version.
The Android guides of the first group can be found on the Android 101 page. These guides usually work for all (or most) versions of Android.
With each major release of Android, we created a section inside the second group.
So, Android 12 guides are listed on this page. While guides for new features of Android 11 are listed on the Android 11 guides page. Same for other versions of Android.
The Android 12 guides listed on this page are mainly based on the stock Android. So they work on all Google Pixel phones (
Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 XL), Motorola Moto phones (Moto G, Moto E, Moto X, Moto Z), Nokia Android phones and all Android One phones with Android 12.
Please note, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL stopped at Android 11. So, there is no official Android 12 update for them.
If you are using a heavy-customized Android 12 phone, e.g., Samsung Galaxy S22 (coming soon), Samsung Galaxy S21, Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20, the features may be slightly different. Some settings may be moved to different locations. Some features may be implemented differently (e.g., UI).
So, do not be panic if you notice the screenshots on these guides are substantially different from your phone. You can always ask for help in the comment section if you cannot follow through with the guide.
