Android 4.3: Notifications allow access & interact with third-party apps and devices

And hourly Groundhog called Android 4.3 , because the colleagues have found the following tidbit, which will soon be integrated into Android. There are several clear indications and new features in Android 4.3, which will expand the notification or the built-in notification system tremendously.

Because so far have third-party apps and devices only read the notifications from Android and play again, but not more. So you can indeed incoming notifications, for example, in the DashClock widget can deliver, but from there open the app only the relevant notification. There are no direct interactions possible, also the original notifications are still showing in the notification bar, so that is even double.

As of Android 4.3, there seems to be an API for apps and devices, allowing them to access the notification system of Android. But then not only with read access, but also interactions outside the notification bar of Android will be possible. A new notification about an incoming email can then, for example, through a connected SmartWatch not only read, but from there also deleted, archived, or are just hidden.

On the leaked Android 4.3 firmware system apps for these functions are already available. Once there is an app to the notifications received as a kind of history, as we know from the browser to the web sites visited, and there is an app for the configuration of people accessing the Notifications apps called “Notification listeners”.

Android is it the perfect base for devices such as Google Glass , Smart Watches and so on. It should be no problem even then, for example, a desktop software automatically outputs the notifications from Android to my PC while I’m around in the office and hence seats anyway all the time on the PC. A further integration with Chrome OS seems realistic to me.

Full access to the notification system allowed of course, that this can be replaced by alternatives. So then an alternative launcher can bring notifications directly on the home screen or as a pop, making the notification bar completely disappears because it is no longer needed.
