Android 4.3 to Arrive with New Notification Service

Android 4.3, the next flavor of Google’s mobile operating system, expected to arrive on devices as part of the Jelly Bean branch, is said to sport a variety of new features and enhancements, including a new notification system.

According to Android Police, the Android 4.3 code coming from a leaked Galaxy S4 Google Edition port shows that applications will be able to read notifications, dismiss them, and even activate action buttons in notifications.  “[…] will be able to read all notifications posted by the system or any installed app, which may include personal information such as contact names and the text of messages sent to you. It will also be able to dismiss these notifications or touch action buttons within them,” said code reportedly shows.

Apps that will take advantage of this will be some sort of “notification listeners,” yet it appears that they will receive higher permissions than third-party apps have today. It remains to be seen how exactly it will affect users’ experience with the OS.
