Google today started rolling out the first beta version of Android 15. It follows the Android 15 Developer Preview 2 released in March this year.

The update brings several improvements, including better performance, improved communication features, and improved support for large screens.

Here's a summary of what's new in the Android 15 beta 1 update:

1) Edge-to-edge display: Android 15 apps are now designed to fit large screens by default, removing the need for developers to explicitly enable this feature. Material 3 components will automatically adjust to fit the screen, providing a consistent look across all apps.

2) Smoother NFC experiences: Android 15 improves the tap-to-pay experience and supports multiple NFC-enabled apps. Devices can now register fingerprints to improve reliability during NFC interactions.

3) Justification between characters: Android 15 introduces character justification for text, improving readability in languages ​​such as Chinese and Japanese.

4) Application file: Android 15 includes OS-level support for archiving apps, allowing users to free up space by partially removing infrequently used apps from their devices.

5) Profile managed by the application: The new ProfilingManager class allows developers to collect profiling information within their applications, simplifying performance analysis.

6) Better Braille support: Android 15 improves support for Braille displays using the HID standard over USB and Bluetooth.

7) Key management for end-to-end encryption: The E2eeContactKeysManager facilitates end-to-end encryption in Android applications by providing a centralized way to manage cryptographic keys.

8) Safe background activity launch: Android 15 restricts malicious background apps from bringing other apps into the foreground, improving user security.
