Android 13 has started its Developer Preview journey ahead of its stable release later this year. Google is expected to bring about several new features with its upcoming Android iteration. Thanks to the developer builds, we have already started becoming aware of what Android 13 might have in store for us. While some features may or may not make it to the final version, we certainly hope that the newly found one does make it to the Android 13 stable build, because it is way too interesting to be left out.
The feature is currently dubbed as Multiple Enabled Profiles (MEP), and it will allow the users to use multiple SIM profiles on a single e-SIM. This will eliminate the need for having multiple physical SIM slots. Let’s take a look at the upcoming MEP feature and find out what it has in store for us.
Multiple Enabled Profiles (MEP) Coming Up With Android 13
Google will supposedly announce the latest Android 13 OS at the Google I/O 2022 in May. The Multiple Enabled Profiles feature has recently been spotted by Esper’s Mishaal Rehman. Notably, the MEP feature will let users use multiple e-SIM profiles on their smartphone.

As of date, most smartphones available in the market come with a dual-SIM card slot or a combo of a physical SIM and an e-SIM. If MEP does make it to the Android 13 stable build, it would mean that smartphone users will be able to make use of three or more mobile numbers on their devices.
Though the specifics are pretty scarce for now, MEP will most likely enable a single e-SIM element to connect to multiple carriers at the same time, which will eliminate the need for two e-SIMS or, in other words, multiple slots for SIM cards. This will not only be convenient for the users, but will also save manufacturing costs and the internal space of the smartphones, thereby taking the overall efficiency up by a notch.
For now, there’s no guarantee that the Multiple Enabled Profiles feature will be made available to the public, but we definitely hope that Google does provide us with the same with Android 13. What are your thoughts on MEP? Do let us know in the comments section below.
