The Countdown Begins: Android 15 Release Date Pixel Confirmed

By ANAS KHAN 9 Min Read

There is no more waiting; mark your calendars and create reminders; the time has come! The official release date for Android 15 for Pixel smartphones has been revealed, and we couldn’t be happier to share the news. This announcement starts an exciting countdown as tech fans all across the globe anxiously anticipate the newest features and developments. Come explore the upcoming Android 15 upgrade with us and see how it will take your Pixel experience to the next level.


Although the exact features of Android 15 have not been announced, several rumours about potential updates have circulated. Below, you’ll see them.


Battery health percentage

We may see a battery health percentage, a little helpful new feature, in Android 15. There would be no mistaking the state of your phone’s battery life if you could compare the percentage of charge it can hold now to when it was brand new.

Especially when attempting to determine whether a worn-out battery or any malfunctioning software is to blame for increasing battery drain, that might be helpful.

Android Authority and Nail Sadykov, moderator of the Google News Telegram channel, discovered an inactive version of the functionality in an Android 14 update; it is already present in iOS. Therefore, it’s a feature that Google is currently developing and is probably going to be included in Android 15.

Lock screen widgets

Lock screen widgets

Since Android 4.2, lock screen widgets have not been natively supported. However, a secret ‘Communal Space’ functionality was discovered in a recent Android beta, so they might be making a comeback with Android 15. This incomplete feature, discovered by Android Authority, would allow you to create a shared area on the lock screen and add widgets to it.

But there are a few major exceptions to this rule. Before anything else, you should know that the Google app, Google Clock, and Google Calendar are the only applications that are presently supported. Rest assured, additional apps will be added before the launch.

Additionally, it seems that this is only compatible with devices that have Hub mode, which presently only includes the Pixel Tablet. Thus, it may have little scope.

Private Space

Non-Samsung phones may soon have the opportunity to conceal important applications in a secret section dubbed Private Space, according to Android 15, which might have a native version of Samsung’s Secure Folder feature.

Android Police discovered an incomplete version of Private Space in a recent Android beta. It would encrypt your data and allow you to download apps that you don’t want others to know about. To access it, you’d need a PIN, pattern, password, or biometrics. Private Space would also include its own Google Play Store.

If you ever want to give someone else your phone, this function will come in handy since these applications will only show up in the private area.

Bluetooth Auracast

It seems like support for Bluetooth Auracast is currently under development since there is a lot of code in the latest Android 14 release that mentions Bluetooth audio sharing.

This function allows you to wirelessly transmit the audio from your phone to nearby Bluetooth devices, so you may listen to music, podcasts, or anything else you choose. For instance, you and a buddy might listen to an album in perfect harmony with this feature, as it allows many Bluetooth headphones or earbuds to join the same audio stream.

A spotted code suggests QR codes as a way for others to listen in on your audio without having to go through the typical Bluetooth connecting procedure.

Easy mode

It seems that Google is now developing a feature to make Android easier to use for those who are less tech-savvy; however, it’s likely that you, the reader, don’t need this function.

Code strings in an Android beta were discovered by the Android Authority, which explained that the new ‘easy pre-set’ feature would enhance the Android user interface by “enlarging icons and text, adding contrast and bold, and adding navigation buttons to the bottom of the screen.” The goal is to make the interface easier to read and navigate.

Therefore, this would most certainly help those with limited dexterity or eyesight, as well as others who are less adept with technology. Although the functionality is not operational at this time, it is likely to be included in Android 15.

App archiving

The Google Play Store will now automatically archive applications you seldom use to save up storage space; this functionality is already included in Android 14. Unfortunately, you can’t archive apps manually with this version, and it only works on the Play Store.

If you’re using Android 15, you could have the option to archive certain applications instead of removing them entirely. This way, you can still access their data but keep their home screen icon and avoid having to re-configure the app every time you use it.

While Android Authority has not confirmed that manual app archiving will be included in Android 15, there is a strong possibility that it will be in the next version of the operating system.

Saved app pairs

If you’re an Android user who often uses split-screen modes, you may have a few favourite app pairings, like YouTube and Chrome. With Android 15, there’s a chance you can store these pairs and have them start simultaneously.

The feature was discovered in a recent Android beta by the Android Police, meaning Google is already hard at work on it. The only issue now is when it will be released. With the site’s success in getting this feature up and running, it’s likely nearing launch readiness; as a result, it may appear in Android 14 rather than 15. But it’s safe to assume it will be available in Android 15, if not sooner.


Android 15 has been officially confirmed for Pixel devices, marking the start of an exciting countdown for tech enthusiasts. The update may include a battery health percentage, lock screen widgets, a native version of Samsung’s Secure Folder feature, Bluetooth Auracast support, easy mode, app archiving, and saved app pairs.

The battery health percentage allows users to see the estimated percentage of charge the battery can hold compared to when it was new. Lock screen widgets are currently only supported for Google Calendar, Google Clock, and the Google app, but more apps may be added in time for launch. Private Space allows non-Samsung phones to hide sensitive apps in a separate area, requiring a PIN, pattern, password, or biometrics. Bluetooth Auracast support is also in the works, allowing users to share audio over Bluetooth. The feature may also include saved app pairs for split-screen modes.
