While Google provides many customization choices for Android users, there are certain functions that are not available. For example, Android users still do not have the ability to alter the brightness of the flashlight, which is a simple but crucial function that Apple has provided iPhone users with for years.
The good news is that this functionality may eventually be available to Android users since it has been detected in Android 13. According to a report published by Esper’s Mishaal Rahman, two additional APIs have been discovered under the “Camera Manager” class.
As per the given source, they allow the system and apps to modify the brightness of the flashlight at different settings.
According to a 9to5Google video, Android 13 will have a simple slider that would allow every Android user to manage the flashlight. However, it will not be accessible on all smartphones running Android 13.
According to the referenced source, the functionality will be confined to certain devices because it would need an update to the Camera hardware. Smartphones that offer maximum brightness levels will have a finer level of control.
Android users currently have simply the choice of turning it on or off. In 2022, you will be hard-pressed to find an Android phone that does not include an LED flash. It is used to improve photographs as well as for other reasons. However, there is still no way to regulate the brightness.
