As is common with staged software rollouts, new updates can take some time to reach all devices, so don’t worry if you don’t see an update notification on your device yet.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet.

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet
