Compatibility framework changes (Android 12)

Figure 1. The App Compatibility Changes screen in developer options lists the changes that you can toggle.

This page describes each behavior change that is part of the compatibility framework in Android 12 (API level 31). Use this list in conjunction with the developer options and ADB commands to test and debug your app as you prepare to support and target Android 12.

Here are some of the things you can do using the compatibility framework tools:

  • Test targeted changes without actually changing the app's targetSdkVersion. You can use the toggles to force-enable specific targeted behavior changes to evaluate the impact on your existing app.
  • Focus your testing on specific changes only. Rather than having to address all targeted changes at once, the toggles let you disable all targeted changes except the ones you want to test against.
  • Manage toggles through adb. You can use adb commands to enable and disable the toggleable changes in your automated test environment.
  • Debug faster using standard change IDs. Toggleable changes each have a unique ID and name that you can use to quickly debug root cause in log output.

For complete details on using the tools for each of these use cases, see Compatibility framework tools.

Behavior changes included in the compatibility framework

The list in this section describes each behavior change that is included in the compatibility framework in the latest developer preview build of Android 12.

You can filter the list of changes by Default State.

Behavior changes added to the compatibility framework in Android 12

ALWAYS_SANDBOX_DISPLAY_APIS

Change ID: 185004937
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Forces the packages it is applied to always have Display API sandboxing applied, regardless of windowing mode. The Display APIs will always provide the app bounds.

To learn more about this change, see Display#getRealSize and getRealMetrics: deprecation and sandboxing.

BLOCK_FLAG_SLIPPERY

Change ID: 157929241
Default State: Enabled for all apps.

For apps running on Android 12 (API level 31), checks if FLAG_SLIPPERY is being used with any windows in the app. We expect that this flag is likely only used by the system components as it is an unsupported field. If so, it will be restricted.

BLOCK_GPS_STATUS_USAGE

Change ID: 144027538
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, all GpsStatus API usage must be replaced with GnssStatus APIs.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, immutable PendingIntent objects that are passed into location APIs will generate an IllegalArgumentException.

BLOCK_PENDING_INTENT_SYSTEM_API_USAGE

Change ID: 169887240
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, LocationRequest system APIs can't be used with PendingIntent location requests.

BLOCK_UNTRUSTED_TOUCHES

Change ID: 158002302
Default State: Enabled for all apps.

To preserve system security and a good user experience, Android 12 prevents apps from consuming touch events where an overlay blocks the app in an unsafe way.

To learn more about this change, see Untrusted touch events are blocked.

CAMERA_MIC_INDICATORS_NOT_PRESENT

Change ID: 162547999
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Indicates that this device supports camera and microphone indicators. Will be false if present, because the CompatChanges#isChangeEnabled method returns true if the Change ID is not present.

CHANGE_ID_AUTH_STATE_DENIED

Change ID: 181350407
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For client apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, a SecurityException is thrown when they are in the denied authorization state and attempt to send a message to a nanoapp.

CHANGE_ID_SAMPLING_RATE_SENSORS_PERMISSION

Change ID: 136069189
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, a SecurityException is thrown when they do not have HIGH_SAMPLING_RATE_SENSORS permission, run in debug mode, and request sampling rates that are faster than 200 Hz.

DELIVER_HISTORICAL_LOCATIONS

Change ID: 73144566
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, location clients may receive historical locations (from before the present time) under some circumstances.

Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, provides backward compatibility for changes in TelephonyDisplayInfo.

DISPLAY_MODE_RETURNS_PHYSICAL_REFRESH_RATE

Change ID: 170503758
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, the platform might throttle down an app's frame rate to a divisor of the refresh rate if it is more preferable (for example, if the app called to Surface.setFrameRate(float, int)). Apps will experience Choreographer.postFrameCallback(Choreographer.FrameCallback) callbacks and backpressure at the throttled frame rate. Apps use Display.getRefreshRate() and Display.Mode.getRefreshRate() to know what the display refresh rate is. Display.getRefreshRate() will always return the application frame rate and not the physical display refresh rate to allow apps to do frame pacing correctly. Display.Mode.getRefreshRate() will return the app frame rate if compiled to a previous release and starting with Android 12 (API level 31) it will return the physical display refresh rate.

DOWNSCALED

Change ID: 168419799
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

This change is the gatekeeper of all per-app buffer downscaling changes. Disabling this change prevents the following scaling factors from working:

Change ID: 157629738
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

Android TV apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher are expected to handle any Window size, including Window sizes greater than 1080p. Apps that target earlier versions of Android do not expect to receive Windows larger than 1080p, so their Windows are downscaled to 1080p when necessary.

DROP_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS

Change ID: 174664120
Default State: Enabled for all apps.

To improve user control when interacting with apps and the system, the ACTION_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS intent action is deprecated as of Android 12.

To learn more about this change, see Apps can't close system dialogs.

Enable this option to allow apps holding the Manifest.permission.MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission to request raw external storage access.

ENFORCE_MINIMUM_WINDOW_ON_INEXACT_ALARMS

Change ID: 185199076
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, all inexact alarms are required to have a minimum window size, expected to be on the order of a few minutes. Practically, any alarms requiring smaller windows are the same as exact alarms and should use the corresponding APIs provided, such as setExact(int, long, PendingIntent). Inexact alarm with shorter windows specified will have their windows elongated by the system.

ENFORCE_NATIVE_SHARED_LIBRARY_DEPENDENCIES

Change ID: 142191088
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

Apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher need to declare dependencies to the public native shared libraries that are defined by the device maker using uses-native-library tag in its AndroidManifest.xml. If any of the dependencies can't be satisfied—for example, one of the dependencies doesn't exist—the package manager won't install the app. The dependency can be specified as optional using the android:required attribute in the tag, in which case failing to satisfy the dependency won't stop the installation.

Once installed, an app is provided with only the native shared libraries that are specified in the app manifest. Calling dlopen on a native shared library that doesn't appear in the app manifest will fail even if it actually exists on the device.

ENFORCE_STRICT_QUERY_BUILDER

Change ID: 143231523

FINISH_INPUT_NO_FALLBACK_CONNECTION

Change ID: 156215187
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, finish the InputConnection when the device becomes non-interactive.

If enabled by the current input method, the current input connection will be finished whenever the devices becomes non-interactive.

If not enabled, the current input connection will instead be silently deactivated when the devices becomes non-interactive, and an onFinishInput() and onStartInput() pair is dispatched when the device becomes interactive again.

FORCE_DISABLE_HEVC_SUPPORT

Change ID: 174227820
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Force disable an app from supporting the HEVC media capability. Apps should declare their supported media capabilities in their manifest but this flag can be used to force an app into not supporting HEVC, hence forcing transcoding while accessing media encoded in HEVC. Setting this flag will override any OS level defaults for apps. It is disabled by default, meaning that the OS defaults take precedence. Setting this flag and FORCE_ENABLE_HEVC_SUPPORT is an undefined state and will result in the OS ignoring both flags.

FORCE_ENABLE_HEVC_SUPPORT

Change ID: 174228127
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Force enable an app to support the HEVC media capability Apps should declare their supported media capabilities in their manifest but this flag can be used to force an app into supporting HEVC, hence avoiding transcoding while accessing media encoded in HEVC. Setting this flag will override any OS level defaults for apps. It is disabled by default, meaning that the OS defaults would take precedence. Setting this flag and FORCE_DISABLE_HEVC_SUPPORT is an undefined state and will result in the OS ignoring both flags.

FORCE_NON_RESIZE_APP

Change ID: 181136395
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Forces the packages it is applied to to be non-resizable.

FORCE_RESIZE_APP

Change ID: 174042936
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Change ID: 158482162
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, the BACKUP permission needed for isBackupServiceActive() is enforced on the service-side rather than client-side in BackupManager.

KEYSTORE_OPERATION_CREATION_MAY_FAIL

Change ID: 169897160
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

When enabled, keystore operation creation might fail according to the new pruning strategy. Keystore used to work under the assumption that the creation of cryptographic operations always succeeds. However, the KeyMint backend has only a limited number of operation slots.

In order to keep up the appearance of "infinite" operation slots, the Keystore daemon would prune least recently used operations if there was no available operation slot. As a result, good operations could be terminated prematurely. This opened up AndroidKeystore up to denial-of-service (DoS) and unintended livelock. For example, if multiple apps woke up at the same time due to power management optimizations and attempted to perform crypto operations, they start terminating each others operations without making any progress.

To break out of livelocks and to discourage DoS attempts, we have changed the pruning strategy for such that it prefers clients that use few operation slots briefly. As a result, single operations that don't linger inactive for more than 5 seconds will almost always conclude unhampered by the pruning strategy. There are still some operations related to file system encryption that can prune even these operations, but those cases are extremely rare. As a side effect of this new pruning strategy operation, creation can now fail if the client has a lower pruning power than all of the existing operations.

Pruning strategy: To find a suitable candidate, we compute the malus for the caller and each existing operation. The malus is the inverse of the pruning power (caller) or pruning resistance (existing operation). For the caller to be able to prune an operation, it must find an operation with a malus higher than its own. For more details on the pruning strategy, see the implementation of operation.rs. On Android 11 (API level 30) and lower, KeyStore2 will poll the Keystore daemon for a free operation slot. For apps targeting Android 11 (API level 30) and lower, it will still look like cipher and signature object initialization always succeeds—however, it may take longer to get an operation. All Android versions benefit from fairer operation slot scheduling and a better chance to successfully conclude an operation.

LOCK_DOWN_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS

Change ID: 174664365
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, the Intent.ACTION_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS can't be sent unless the app also has the android.permission.BROADCAST_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS permission. Note that this is the more restrictive version of #DROP_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS that expects the app to stop sending the Intent.ACTION_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS intent once the app starts targets Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

LOCK_DOWN_COLLAPSE_STATUS_BAR

Change ID: 173031413
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, the Manifest.permission.STATUS_BAR permission is required to collapse the status bar panels due to security reasons. This was being exploited by malware to prevent the user from accessing critical notifications.

LOW_POWER_EXCEPTIONS

Change ID: 168936375
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, all LocationRequest objects marked as low power throw exceptions if the caller does not have the LOCATION_HARDWARE permission, instead of silently dropping the low power part of the request.

MISSING_EXPORTED_FLAG

Change ID: 150232615
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, an explicit value must be specified for the android:exported attribute whenever an intent filter is defined.

NATIVE_MEMTAG_SYNC

Change ID: 177438394
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Enables synchronous (SYNC) memory tag checking in this process. This flag only affects hardware supporting the ARM Memory Tagging Extension (MTE). If both NATIVE_MEMTAG_ASYNC and this option are enabled, this option takes precedence and MTE is enabled in SYNC mode.

NEVER_SANDBOX_DISPLAY_APIS

Change ID: 184838306
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

Forces the packages it is applied to never have Display API sandboxing applied for a letterbox or SCM activity. The Display APIs will continue to provide DisplayArea bounds.

Applies to the following methods:

OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO

Change ID: 174042980
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

This change is the gatekeeper of all changes that force a given minimum aspect ratio. Enabling this change allows the following minimum aspect ratios to be applied:

When this change is enabled for an app package, the minimum aspect ratio given in the app's manifest is overridden to the largest enabled aspect ratio unless the app's manifest value is higher.

OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO_LARGE

Change ID: 180326787
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

When OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO is also enabled, enabling this change for a package sets the activity's minimum aspect ratio to a large value as defined by OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO_LARGE_VALUE.

OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO_MEDIUM

Change ID: 180326845
Default State: Disabled for all apps.

When OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO is also enabled, enabling this change for a package sets the activity's minimum aspect ratio to a medium value as defined by OVERRIDE_MIN_ASPECT_RATIO_MEDIUM_VALUE.

Change ID: 165573442
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

Admin apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher can't use DevicePolicyManager.setPasswordQuality(ComponentName, int) to set password quality on the DevicePolicyManager instance obtained by calling DevicePolicyManager.getParentProfileInstance(ComponentName). Instead, they should use DevicePolicyManager.setRequiredPasswordComplexity(int) to set coarse-grained password requirements device-wide.

RATE_LIMIT_TOASTS

Change ID: 174840628
Default State: This change can't be toggled. It is only logged by the compatibility framework.

Enables rate limiting on the number of Toast.show() calls to prevent overburdening the user with too many toasts in a limited time. Any attempt to show more toasts than allowed in a certain time frame will result in the toast being discarded.

REQUIRE_EXACT_ALARM_PERMISSION

Change ID: 171306433
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, apps must have the Manifest.permission.SCHEDULE_EXACT_ALARM permission in order to use any APIs for setting exact alarms, such as setExactAndAllowWhileIdle(int, long, PendingIntent) and setAlarmClock(AlarmClockInfo, PendingIntent).

Change ID: 175408749
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, the updated form of the app links verification API is required. This requirement means an app must declare domains inside an intent filter that includes all of the following:

  • android:autoVerify="true"
  • Intent.ACTION_VIEW
  • Intent.CATEGORY_BROWSABLE
  • Intet.CATEGORY_DEFAULT
  • Only IntentFilter.SCHEME_HTTP and/or IntentFilter.SCHEME_HTTPS, with no other schemes

On prior versions of Android, Intent.CATEGORY_BROWSABLE was not a requirement, other schemes were allowed, and setting autoVerify to true in any intent filter would implicitly pretend that all intent filters were set to autoVerify="true".

SECURITY_EXCEPTION_ON_INVALID_ATTRIBUTION_TAG_CHANGE

Change ID: 151105954
Default State: Enabled for apps that target Android 12 (API level 31) or higher.

For apps targeting Android 12 (API level 31) and higher, enforces that all attributionTags sent to noteOp(String, int, String), noteProxyOp(String, String), and startOp(String, int, String) are defined in the manifest of the package that is specified as a parameter of the methods.
