You may recall that the name of a dessert, or a confection, was used to refer to an Android version. However, this has changed with the latest version of Android 10. We made you aware of this in the Android dessert article ending with a Q. But users didn’t seem to be very pleased with the new android operating system. They felt that it did not contain anything fresh.
Google’s new android operating system announced at Google I / O, the world’s largest and most popular technology conference. In addition, a preview version of the new operating system will be released in the last few weeks of March.
But earlier this year, they decided to make a preview preview of their latest version of the OS. Many people refer to this operating system as “Android R”, but it is named Android 11. Developer Preview has already been released to android-developers.googleblog.com.
The idea is to enhance the 5G experience. The only difference is that UI or UX (user interface or user experience) is not that much different. However, the majority of the tech world believes that this is likely to change, as it has not yet been released to users.
To install this operating system you have to flash the whole system manually. The Developer Preview currently only supports Pixel 2, 3, 3A, and 4 phones. The main objectives of the operating system are to enable 5G bandwidth and the new trend-packed foldable phones to work more efficiently.
Additionally, the developer preview features include low-latency video decoding. Android 11 also includes a special HEIF – High Efficiency Image File Format for streaming services including Google’s latest Game Streaming service, Stadia. It also includes Google’s new Neuronal Network API (Application Programming Interface).
Android 11 features a similar functionality to the iMessage feature that comes with Apple’s iOS. This is known as “Conversations”.
In addition to these key features, below are some of the features that you can see in the Developer Preview.
If you are a Facebook user, you may remember the “chat heads” in its Messaging Platform. The new Bubbles feature is created to mimic that feature. Chat Bubble lets you convert several apps into Chat Bubble. At present, this feature is only supported for Google Messaging. However, the purpose is to make other messaging apps the same.
This enables you to chat separately in the Notifications section. Messaging allows users to intercept other notifications without interruption
New App Permissions
Usually, any app we install will display a Permission Request on the screen if we want to get our camera, microphone, and location data. The majority of devices respond to that request with only two choices: Permission or Not. However, you will have the option of granting Permission only temporarily.
The new Android 11 also features a screen recording feature that Google introduces itself.
In addition to these features
- Easy to turn on dark mode over time
- Motion Sense gesture support for Pixel 4 phones.
- In the future, when airplane mode is enabled, Bluetooth audio connections will not be disconnected.
- The XDA-developers.com website also features a new Screenshot.
However, we should keep in mind that this is just a Developer Preview. We’ll hear more about the new android 11 at Google I / O next May.
