For starters, what Google means when it says that Android 12 has reached platform stability is; the OS is stabilizing, and developers can test their apps as the APIs, features, and layout have been finalized. After testing out their apps, developers can release updates for Android 12 and ensure that things are fixed beforehand.

This update will be followed by a release candidate and the final, stable release in the next few months. The Material You theming engine, UI changes, privacy-focused features make Android 12 one of the biggest feature-packed updates.
