Here’s everything you need to know about this Android update

When will I get it?

Currently only if you have a Google Pixel or OnePlus smartphone, Oppo, Realme, and Xiaomi you can install version 11 of Android, somewhere the final version and somewhere it is an experimental version but accessible to the masses. In the coming months, we expect Samsung to join this list.

Does it cost?

Updates are free from Google. If you are required to pay for the next version of Android then it is a scam.

Will the existing applications work?

Android 11 does not change the way the operating system works which means that the applications will continue to function as they have in recent years.

Improved conversations

For many users, phones are just about communicating with a host of applications. These apps will have their own dedicated space in the phone notifications section making it much easier to manage conversations without interfering with the rest of the notifications.


Facebook was the first to introduce this design model with Messenger in 2013 by placing conversations in the form of bubbles on the screen and standing on any type of application interface or operating system. By pressing on them, the bubbles revealed the full conversation to read.

Google has taken this feature and integrated it into the Android operating system so that every communication app works the same although some need to be updated.

The idea of ​​this change is to continue to do what you are doing while having quick access to the conversation you are having with a relative or friend.

Improved media content controls

The music and video control buttons will be part of a dedicated section in the notifications panel standing above other notifications. Part of this update is the ability to change the music output as well, for example, you are using headphones you want to switch the speaker which you can do it with a button.

Quick access to smart devices

If you have lights and smart devices at home, this version of Android is for you. Holding down the power button will give you quick access to a panel where in addition to the start or power buttons, you will also have a collection of buttons to turn the smart devices on and off.

Buttons can be changed based on the devices you use most commonly.

Better privacy

Based on the privacy enhancements that Android 10 made, Android 11 will add more controls this time around to the permissions you give apps so that they serve the purpose for which they were built. For example, access to the microphone, camera, and location can now only be granted once by avoiding permanent permission even when you are not using the application that requires access to these resources.

Android will even reset the permissions you have given to an app that you have not used in a long time so that it does not access parts of the phone if you have left it in oblivion.

Faster updates

Google is doing its best to send as frequent security and privacy updates as it can, that will be available on Google Play similar to apps. So you do not have to wait for the smartphone manufacturer to send a full update if it is a critical security fix.

Android 11 debuts officially and not just for the Pixel devices

OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo and Realme have announced the debut of the operating system for their devices

After many months in beta, Android 11 is finally here and to everyone’s surprise not only for Pixel smartphones, from today the operating system can also be installed by some OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme devices.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

From Pixel 2 to 4A everyone can download it from today. OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro Os upgrade will be available today in North America, Europe, and India, as well as the Oppo X2 and Reno 2.

Android 11 brings a host of new features but generally focuses less on adding new features and more on the management of many things your smartphone can do. Among the most important updates is the notifications section, new media controls, new interface for screenshots, tighter permissions for applications, etc. The operating system has added a new bubble-like interface similar to Facebook Messenger. 

But despite the fact that a large number of smartphones will get the new system from now on, a number of options remain exclusive to Pixel, such as the location-sharing option in AR, Smart Reply in Gboard, and intelligently renamed files.

The final version is now ready to be downloaded on Pixel 2, 3, 3A, 4, and 4A. OnePlus also confirmed its debut on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Google promises that more partners will join the launch in the coming days.

Google launches the first version of Android 11, everything you need to know

According to Google Android 11 brings changes in three spaces: Contacts, Control and Privacy

After several consecutive delays, Google is ready to launch the first experimental version of Android 11 for the masses. Those who have a Pixel 2 or newer phone can install the new operating system by subscribing to the company’s beta program.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

Such versions of Android can be unstable and problematic. Only if you are one of the enthusiasts who want to test the latest news, otherwise we suggest you wait.

Android 11’s public beta was due to debut on June 3 with a virtual activity similar to Google I/O. The company pushed it in response to protests taking place in the country saying it was not the time to celebrate. According to Google Android 11 brings changes in three spaces: Contacts, Control, and Privacy. The first is about how you communicate with others with a section dedicated to the notification panel.

Conversation bubbles will make it easier to keep in touch while you are using or working on other applications. These bubbles are similar to what Facebook offers via Messenger. Applications can choose to use this new visual element and developers can easily add it to their applications.

Improvements have also come to the keyboard mainly in the suggestion belt and command control.

Android 11 will also bring improvements in controlling interconnected devices. By pressing the start button, the new operating system will open a control panel for connected devices such as speakers, headphones and TVs.

Last but not least is the control over privacy. With Android 11 come single-use permissions for apps.

Usually, when you install a new application during the configuration process some options appear which give them access to the camera, microphone, or location where users could access these unique components all the time (even in the background) and only when using the applications. The new operating system already offers permission for one use and the next time you open the application you will be asked for permission again.

So if you’ve downloaded an app and used it only once and don’t want to use it anymore, at least you don’t have to worry about how it’s accessing your location or your camera.

For developers, there are also new ones like machine learning or simpler “debugging”. There have also been rumors of some tools against robotic calls. Interface and navigation updates as well as new icon shapes are also expected.

With the advent of new experimental versions of Android 11 we will learn more about the operating system.

Here’s what to expect from Android 11

After Developer Preview of Android 11, we now know more of what to expect specifically from the latest version of the operating system. It is not yet advisable to install it on a smartphone as it is still very unstable. However, it is not bad to learn what innovations we will enjoy after the update officially arrives.

Android 11 Release
[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

So, here’s what to expect from Android 11

  • Screen recorder Google has been playing with this feature for some time and an icon is already present in the Quick Settings window. This time we expect a finalized version with even more specific options.
  • Chat bubbles: More or less like Messenger, the chat circles with another contact which float across the screen over any application will be available for all chat programs. Telegram and WhatsApp work best with it.
  • Menu distribution: The distribution window will allow you to select 4 favorite apps. So when you want to share something you won’t have to waste time with other apps. Also the most frequent contacts.
  • Stop notifications during registration: When you are taking a picture or video, the sound or vibration of a message can be annoying. Android 11 will allow you to restrict both.
  • Airplane Mode no longer shuts down Bluetooth: Up to Android 10, the Airplane mode also turned off Bluetooth, at 11 this will no longer be a problem. It can be used without restrictions even when the waves are closed.
  • Notification story: Android does not allow you to view notifications once you have removed them. The new system will allow you to see them all in the new notification history option.
  • Removal of permissions for unused applications: In the “App Permissions” section of each application, a new function will be found, which will deny all the permissions given for accessing that application. If an app has received your authorization for location, photos, or other data, if you have not used it for a long time you may deny this right.
  • One-time permission: Android 10 allows apps to retrieve your location data, microphone, or camera only when open. Now with Android 11 you will be able to give them permission only once and then the system will take away their right.
  • Support for curved screens: The latter are a trend among Android devices, developers will now have the opportunity to better manage these spaces by defining them as interactive areas.
  • New technology: Android 11 will be better suited to folding devices technologies and 5G. It will also include low-latency video decoding for gaming services such as Google Stadia.
  • Windows inside windows: Multitasking has always been a priority and feature of Android and this time the small window will be able to be enlarged or reduced more easily. Just like on a PC, just grab one of the 4 corners of the window and redefine it.

We have already entered the second phase of the launch, which will be finalized in August, where the official update of Android 11 will begin.
