What is the hibernate function that Android 12 will release? | Digital Trends Spanish
The first beta version to be released next month for Android 12 developers could incorporate a new and practical function.
Through some posts by a user on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), we have learned that this new tool in Android 12 would allow unused applications to be put into hibernation.
This would be very useful, as it would allow us to reduce the memory footprint of those apps that we do not use at a certain time.
More details about this new function have not yet been known, in particular if the applications will go into hibernation automatically or it will be the user who selects between the apps want to hibernate.
If the function operates automatically, applications will go into hibernation after a certain period of time during which they are not used.
If we manage it manually, we can re-enable or “wake up” the applications once we use them again.
Meanwhile, the editor-in-chief of XDA Developers Mishaal Rahman has pointed out on Twitter that this hibernation mode will be applied differently depending on whether it is activated for one or more users on a device.
So the first details of Android & # 39; s app hibernation feature are here. If an app is hibernated for a single user, the system will clear cache. Google will add more for package-level hibernation (app is hibernated for all users).

If a single consumer of a multi-user device chooses to hibernate an application, that application’s cache app associated with the user will be deleted, freeing up some space.
Now we need to know how it will be when all users of the Android device hibernate an application, especially if we consider that most terminals only have one user configured.
