About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” article, we have unpacked the latest version of the app that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APK files, in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code in this hint at possible future features.

Another article you update is about settings. The main menu is growing, while MD3 switches are now used everywhere.
