The mere thought of Android 11 beta release news, brings goosebumps out of excitement. And you end up thinking what new Android is likely to bring in this year’s release.
Hold your breath, as we are going to raise the curtain and present to you, Android 11 beta release update with this post. Just scroll it further…
To start with, this year’s release was different due to the pandemic effect. Instead of live-streaming, Android shared a few videos and online resources to be consumed in different parts of the world.
Also, Google released the long-awaited Android 11 beta after a short delay due to ongoing demonstrations for racial justice in the United States. Indeed, this release is packed with a bunch of handy features so let’s deep dive into these features…
Aiming to make faster communication
Google always aimed to make it convenient and comforting for the people to communicate, without facing any hurdles.
To make it possible, now Google Meet is available to everyone!
It further can support larger meetings, and the most exciting feature here suggests that family mode for Duo, would let users doodle on calls. To bring that excitement factor in communication, now users can add masks and effects, helping them to express their emotions more expressively.
Enhanced way to access messages
On the other hand, Google has taken another step to make communication easier and simpler on the phone. It means now Android 11 will move all of the conversations across multiple messaging apps to a dedicated space in the notification section.
This will let the users see, respond, and manage every conversation in a much easier way from one place only. Further, users can mark a conversation as ‘Priority’ to provide preference to a specific message, so it would never get missed. The key conversation will always show up on the users’ always-on display and can even “break-through” a Do Not Disturb setting.
There one more exciting feature with Android 11, that is Bubbles. With this new feature, users get the opportunity to respond and engage with important conversations without switching back and forth between their current task and the messaging app. This very feature can be opened right from the notification and multitask without missing the beat.
Gboard with emojis
Additionally, on typing Gboard in Android 11, users will get the relevant and automatic suggestions for emoji and text. This is made possible with the secure on-device intelligence that further takes advantage of Federated Learning. It runs without Google ever seeing anything you type.
Improved way to control connected devices and media
Indeed, Android is taking every bit of effort to make the most out of ambient computing. With Android 11 it enables users to better manage their connected devices.
This new release has brought many significant changes in Android functionality, and one of the most engaging ones is the quick access and control of the smart device. Now users can access their device by long pressing on the power button. They get the option to adjust the temperature, turn on/off the lights with just a tap without opening multiple apps.
Android 11 is going to bring new media controls, wherein users can quickly and conveniently switch the device their audio or video content is playing on. This allows users to shuffle music from one device to another in one step only.
Stringent privacy feature
As we all know that every Android release brings better and improved privacy and security controls. In this run, Android 11 lets users decide how and when data on their device can be shared. For the granular control, this release has brought improved and sensitive permissions. One-time permission can allow users to provide apps’ access to the microphone, camera, or location, for one time only.
And for the next time, if the app needs access to these sensors, the permission has to be taken again. Also, if the user hasn’t used an app for an extended period, Android will “auto-reset” all of the permissions associated with that app, and will notify the user. Users need to re-grant the app permissions the next time they open the app.
More features are waiting for you!
Eventually, with Android 11, users may get many more features, such as screen recorder, updated Voice Access, improved performance. Also, the improved share menu you cannot miss, as it makes it easier to share content.

Users can easily find these features in Beta, available on Pixel 2+ phones, and on the other devices it will be available in the coming weeks.’
