The remove and uninstall drag areas at the top of the home screen also have outlines to let users know that those actions are also available.
This feature seems helpful as you can know how much space certain widgets take up.

The Android 12 beta is “by far our most downloaded/installed beta ever”, says Dave Burke, the VP of Engineering for Android. Unfortunately, he doesn't give any concrete numbers so we can compare with previous betas.
