After analyzing the source code of a beta version of Android 12, the folks at XDA Developers found evidence of new functionality. In question, there will be greater control over the deleted files.

We are talking about something very similar to Recycling that has been in place since the beginning of Windows. A place where users can manage, according to their preferences, the files that have been deleted from the system.

Android 12 should implement something very similar to a Recycle Bin

With the launch of Android 12, users will have greater control over the management of deleted files. The novelty can be found in the smartphone’s storage settings.

There, the user will be able to view all the files that are in the “Recycling” of Android and even know how much space they still occupy on their equipment. It will also be possible to delete all files in that location.

Since this feature is still disabled, it is not certain what it will be able to offer to users. However, it is believed that it will also be possible to restore files from this location.

The inclusion of a “Recycle Bin” on Android started at version 11. Last year, Google implemented a mechanism for managing deleted files, however, it can only be used by applications.

This means that if you delete a file in a certain application, only that application will have the power to restore it. There is no centralized location for this option, something that should be resolved with the launch of Android 12.

Google files will have similar functionality

To corroborate this novelty, we have the already promised “Garbage” paste that will be implemented in the Google Files application. There, the user is expected to have access to the same privileges that I describe above.

Currently, we do not know if there is a relationship between both features. The Files application can receive this novelty at any time, without the support of Android 12 for its operation.
