Google plans to introduce a "simplified setup" mode to smartphones based on Android 15 to make it easier for non-technical or visually impaired users to work with them. This mode has already appeared in the beta version of QPR3 for Android 14, writes Android Authority.

According to the current state of the feature, it is unlikely to be implemented in QPR3's Android 14 stable update in June. It is more likely that Google is developing this feature for inclusion in Android 15, which is scheduled to be officially unveiled later this year.

The test version received it through the parallel development of the latest Android 14 and Android 15 updates.
