Google releases the first beta of Android 11 on June 3. The search giant announced this in a YouTube video. The company will therefore tell you more about new features in the next version of its mobile operating system.
The live stream replaces the announcement at Google I/O developer conference, the video shows. The conference was scheduled for this month, but has been canceled due to the recent coronavirus outbreak.
Android 11 came out in February as a Developer Preview. This allows developers to test whether their apps are working properly and to experiment with things like new APIs. Many of the new features for users are only in beta. The release of Android 11 is planned for the end of the summer.
In Android 11, users can pin conversations without new notifications in the notification bar to access them quickly. Chat apps can also display conversations in ‘bubbles’. In addition, it will be possible to insert images in the notification bar when replying to chat conversations. In terms of privacy, users can give an app one-time access to, for example, the location. That is not possible under Android 10. In addition, Google will ban apps by default to keep the location in the background.
