ColorOS 13 (Android 13) est là et on l'a installé : voici toutes les nouveautés à connaître

We installed ColorOS 13 (Android 13) in beta on an Oppo Find X5 Pro. New features, new design elements, here’s everything we discovered.

As expected, the global launch of the beta version of Oppo’s interface, ColorOS 13 based on Android 13, took place on August 18 at 1 pm sharp (Paris time). If we don’t have any information about its public availability yet, we were able to install it on a compatible smartphone for a first grip. Since this is a beta version that is far from stable, we prefer to wait a little longer before offering you a full test. This is what we learned.

“big” news

The most anticipated novelty is also the least surprising. Without a doubt, the vast majority of users appreciated the Monet system, which allows you to touch the wallpaper to see the colors of the interface, so Oppo decided to go a step further. Only a little.

Instead of and four color options, you’ll find six, with the addition of a new blue. “inspired by the subtle color differences in the water at sunrise and sunset”, write the mark. Alongside the 16 color palettes now offered in the Pixel Experience, it’s still a bit cheap, but it’s still taken. On the other hand, in this same theme of colors, the really good idea of ​​ColorOS is still there, which consists of being able to manually choose the colors of the wallpaper on which to draw.

To continue with the pure design part, the shortcuts panel has been completely redesigned, to better highlight three tiles. Two of them can be customized, while the one that manages the music player is immovable. The manager of the associated audio devices also evolves a bit on the sidelines.

useful additions

If ColorOS 13 doesn’t seem to offer a revolution compared to Oppo’s beloved interface, it at least has the merit of bringing some interesting features. We’re thinking, for example, of an ability to automatically blur names and avatars when taking a screenshot of a Messenger or WhatsApp conversation.

We should also mention the addition of an encrypted safe that allows you to store sensitive documents. Some privacy options added by Android 13 are also invited to the party, such as the automatic clearing of the clipboard after a certain time or the possibility of using the nearby Wi-Fi function without revealing your position. ColorOS also offers a novelty that helps hide a sensitive window in multitasking.

ColorOS 13 masking

Another important novelty, if you make a video call, ColorOS should manage that notifications take up a little less space. The child mode has also been slightly improved. This will now warn children using the phone when their surroundings are too dark, to avoid damaging their eyes, or if they are too close to the screen.

More anecdotally, basic app icons have been redesigned, and fonts offer more settings for bold, size, or even style. It is now also possible to display your application folders in large format. Let’s add that Shelf, an equivalent of the iOS control center, receives a few more widgets for the occasion.

what is still missing

Android 13, in its main form visible on Google, shows off a lot of new features that are still missing here. If the possibility of using the phone on multiple accounts is present, we can regret that Oppo has missed other important points.

For example, it is impossible to set a specific language per application. Neither trace of the passage of notifications in opt in for now. However, we bet that Oppo will be able to add these important new features in the final version of its interface.

Finally, know that the interface at this stage is aptly called beta. In fact, we cannot advise you to install it now, the number of errors is still very important. Small example: the search bar in the app drawer doesn’t work at all anymore.
