After a long time of waiting and a beta version, finally Google has already released, officially, Android 11, the latest version of your operating system that will land on various mobile devices.
This recent version of its interface can not only be enjoyed on smartphones from Pixel 2 onwards, it will also be deployed on other devices such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo and Realme, according to a release of the company.
Android 11 comes to offer users great news and privacy settings. After several months with multiple betas, Android 11 is finally available for your download.
What’s new in Android 11
This version of the operating system will include a new space dedicated to conversations dedicated to conversations within the notifications section, as well as the message bubbles that remind us of that feature that we saw years ago with Facebook Messenger.
Among other novelties, Android 11 will integrate new controls for multimedia playback.
“Excited for Android 11 to start rolling out today, with better ways to communicate, new ways to manage your devices and media, and even more control over your data and privacy,” said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google.
With this update of Android, users will be able to use a control that allows selecting the playback destination to change the device on which the music is played more easily, such as AirPlay in iOS.
In the same way, it should be clarified that Android 11 has a strong focus on the bet towards the smart home. Now it is possible to access all the devices in the house just by pressing the power button.
With this version, it will be possible to control the buttons with a single touch without having to open multiple applications.
And, in terms of privacy, Android 11 integrates unique permissions to grant one-time access to features like location, camera, and microphone. Permissions will expire once an app is closed and will be requested when it is reopened.
