The Android 11 Beta has landed giving people a glimpse at what's in store with the Android 11 OS that has been scheduled to launch later.
There are many changes coming with the new Android 11. The Android 11 beta will highlight messages so you won't have to search for them within a huge pile of alerts.
The notification dropdown will have a new 'conversations' section that will include shortcuts for users to set reminders or access a chat via a pop-out 'Bubble.'
The voice control accessibility is also improved in this version and generates labels that are related to what's on the screen. Keyboard suggestions are also made better with apps that use Autofill. Moreover, if you use smart home devices via your phone, you'll also be able to control everything via a new Device Controls hub that you can enter by holding down the power button for a few seconds.
Google has also improved privacy, as it does for every new version. Android 11 will automatically reset app permissions and ask users for their choices when they open it after they have not used an app for long.
This is all for users for now, but for developers, there have been plenty of improvements. If you want to explore deeper, the Android team has also shared a series of videos on YouTube that take users deeper into what's in store in the beta Android 11.
