Each year, Google presents the new features of Android at a conference I/O. But the edition 2020 of this event has been cancelled due to the pandemic. At the conference I/O, Google wanted to organize an online event for the launch of the beta Android 11.
But this event has also been cancelled, because of the situation in the United States. And this week, Google has finally released the first beta of Android 11, but more discreetly. ” We have canceled the launch event in virtual reality to allow people to focus on the important discussions on racial justice in the United States. Instead, we are releasing today the beta version of the Android 11 in a very different form, via short videos and Web pages that you can consume at your own pace when the time is right for you. Millions of developers around the world build their business with Android, and we are releasing the beta version today to continue to support these developers with the latest tools “, reads a press release of the firm of Mountain View.
Soon to be available on the flagships from Oppo
In any case, following the publication of this first beta, we know that it can be installed on both smartphones non-Pixel : the Oppo Find X2 and the Oppo Find X2 Pro, the two flagships recently announced by Oppo. As reported in the site XDA, beta Android 11 will be available on these two devices as early as this month of June (with the overlay ColorOS, of course).
Unlike the preview, the beta of Android are more stable versions and these are not targeted to developers, but also fans who want to try out the new features. And normally, this beta Android 11 should be available on other models, before the release of the stable version (other brands are expected to soon make announcements).
Among the new features that are already available on this first beta of Android 11, there is a new organization notifications, a new way to interact with the content on the screen with voice commands, or shortcuts, to control the connected objects in the power menu. Next to privacy, Google has also developed a few improvements, such as the ability to grant a permission to an app for a session, or even the automatic deletion of permissions of applications that are no longer used.
