Keyword: Android 11
Last year, Android 10 blew a new breath into the entire operating system with many new features. Not only did Google come up with a new logo, but also incorporated many useful new features. So what will the successor to Android 11 have?
Android 11 is the next major upgrade of the Android operating system expected to be introduced by Google in 2020. According to updated information, Android is likely to be released in September this year. Similar to Android 10, the upcoming Android 11 is not tied to the name of a certain dish, simply called Android 11 or possibly Android R.
The new features will be available with Android 11
– Built-in screen recording function
– Turn off notifications in video recording
– Improved touch sensitivity
– Do not turn off Bluetooth when airplane mode is activated
– Take screenshots of long content
– New Motion Sense feature for Pixel 4
– Pin apps in share menu
– Reverse wireless charging for Pixel 5
– New technologies: Support 5G, optimize foldable phone displays, decode low latency video, image formats like HEIF, API support
– Displays dialogue in the notification area
– Context-aware dark background
– Better control of app one-time access
– Protect storage memory more closely
– The ability to update Android features through the Play Store
– Built-in screen recording function
In the beta versions of Android 10, there is a hidden option to enable screen recording. However, when the complete Android 10 release was released, this feature did not appear. It seems that the Android development team decided to try this feature again with the launch of Android 11. It can be used when needed on the phone without having to go to the Play Store to find a 3rd party application.
- Improved touch sensitivity
Screen protector users will love this feature. Google has added an option to increase the user’s touch sensitivity to the settings menu that allows you to increase the sensitivity of the phone’s touchscreen.
- Do not turn off Bluetooth when airplane mode is activated
In the past, when you turned on airplane mode on your phone, Bluetooth was also turned off.
However, people who use Bluetooth headsets when they activate airplane mode, have resulted in the need to re-enable it. Therefore, in Android 11, Bluetooth is still turned on when airplane mode is activated.
- New Motion Sense feature for Pixel 4
Google has announced that the Pixel 4 will come with a new feature called Motion Sense. In Android 11, it looks like Google has started to expand the capabilities of Motion Sense. On Android 11, Google will add a new way to control your phone without touching it. You can move your hand over your phone to pause a track, and hover the mouse over it again to start playback.
Looking back at Android 10, one of the highlights Google brings is its ability to control permissions of powerful apps. Now, Android 11 takes a new approach. When the app asks for access to “sensitive” features such as location, microphone or camera, you can grant permissions only once. Applications will be blocked as soon as you turn them off and will ask again the next time you use them.
Application authorization should not be underestimated. So we always expect Google to “take action” more strongly in this regard.
Finally, 5G is gradually being introduced to users. In 2020, more and more people will be connecting to this new generation of wireless networks. To make this process easier, Android 11 added a “Dynamic Meterdness API”. This doesn’t sound very appealing on paper, but it’s absolutely necessary. This API allows phones to take full advantage of 5G.
If this API detects you’re connected to unlimited 5G signals, you’ll have access to the highest possible video and graphics quality. The potential of 5G is really cool, and you’ll experience the maximum speed of 5G on Android 11.
- Protect storage memory more closely
For added security, these applications only have access to certain parts of the file system. Basically, the system “quarantines” applications to better protect your private data. This is a huge change for Android, and it has caused quite a bit of controversy in the developer community. Google was frank on the matter in its article regarding Android 11, which will give developers more time to transition entirely to the new system.
These are basic information about Android 11. We hope that this version will make an outstanding version of Google.
