Google has begun previewing the latest changes to Android as part of November’s Google Play System updates, including improvements for Wallet and parental controls. Google is also bringing its updated photo picker to nearly every Android device, including ones that are quite outdate (Kitkat).
Google has now announced that Android’s photo picker UI — the one that debuted with Android 13 is becoming available for almost all Android device. According to the patch notes, phones and tablets as far back as Android 4.4 KitKat, released in 2013, will be able to use Android 13’s photo picker. (Originally, Google had only said that devices on Android 11 and newer would get the new design.)
Developer:Consider to switch your implementation of photo gallery integration to permissionless photo picker.
QA engineer:Check changes in Play services
PM/DM:Business as usual.
