Google has launched the Android 12 Beta 5 with several bug fixes and improvements. This final beta release has also added new features, such as the universal search bar in the Pixel Launcher, the Private Compute Core privacy settings, and the new Live Space widget. One of the main changes in this final beta release is redesigned Clock and Calculator apps. Both apps now follow the new Material You design and have a beautiful UI.

Google Calculator app (v8.0) and Google Clock app (v7.0) in Android 12 (beta 5) have a refreshing look and follow the Material You design language. Now, the user interface of both apps will change with the color of the wallpaper you choose. The redesigned UI elements in Google Calculator and Clock bring a stunning look.

Google Calculator 8.0 and Clock 7.0 apps are available for download. You can sideload both apps on phones that run on older Android versions to test the new features. Of course, you will need Android 12 to work the Material You theme (change apps UI colors based on the wallpaper), but you can enjoy all other new UI elements on older Android versions.
