Android 12 blocking replaces the official joint list
Android 12 blocking replaces the official joint list

Android users are familiar with the sharing schedule. This is the menu that appears from the bottom when you click the share button in the app.

This list shows all the possible sharing options and ways to share content.

The user interface of the shared page can look completely different from one application to another. This is because Google does not enforce UI consistency for shared pages, but does allow third-party apps and manufacturers to customize it.

One way for Android users to bypass shared pages is to use a third-party app like Sharedr.

Additionally, Sharedr has a more consistent user interface that also eliminates direct sharing, and the live share rendering speed on some devices can be quite slow.

However, it turns out that it is not easy to use a third-party shared page to replace the Android shared page in Android 12.

Android 12 prohibits replacing the official joint menu:

In Android 12, Google will no longer allow third-party apps to set themselves as the shared default page.

A Sharedr developer recently complained that Android 12 no longer prompts you to choose between Sharedr and Android share pages and the Android share page is still open by default.

In response to this issue, a Google representative indicated that this was expected behavior rather than an error.

In other words, Google has banned third-party Android 12 apps from replacing shared pages. The application should start the approval dialog.

He added: The job of replacing the sharing dialogue has also become impossible. You cannot implement the live sharing pane for the user interface or personal tabs.

Additionally, you can still use Sharedr and other shared page alternatives. However, the app itself cannot respond to release events. Therefore, when you are trying to share something, you will not be able to set it as default.

Instead, you need to select Sharedr on the share page and then set the target app to share, which adds one more step.

It's not clear if this new behavior also prevents device manufacturers from customizing shared pages.

Manufacturers like Samsung, for example, allow you to turn direct contact sharing on or off.

This question only applies to Android 12. If you are using Android 11, you should be able to use Sharedr or other shared page apps without any issues.
