Notification permission request
When you first use an app on an Android smartphone, you notice permission requests for accessing the camera, microphone, Bluetooth, call record, contacts, and more. With the upcoming Android version, apps will also ask your permission to send you notifications While this may not seem like a major feature, it can be helpful for users who do not like their notification bar filled with unnecessary caution. The feature will be similar to the one seen on Apple smartphones.
Android 13 will allow app developers to automatically rotate user-granted permissions that are no longer required. For example, if an app needs access to the camera or contacts once installed, and it no longer needs access, Android will automatically downgrade permissions. However, it is not yet known if Google is forcing developers to include this feature in their app.

It allows users to share and broadcast their audio with friends and family, or subscribe to public broadcasts.
