Every year Android gives a major update which comes with the new UI and new features. The updated android version contains new security patches. This year Android 10 was released but for 2021 Android has released Android 11 with new and latest features. The new user interface make the phone more beautiful and more stable.
The company has not yet released android 11 stable update for all phones, rather it is now released for only Google pixel phones (pixel 2 or above). They are also working on major updates of some other phones and most probably they will release it on some new high end devices. But the list has not yet released by android company.
Some of the major features of android 11 are:
- Conversations, Media, and chat bubbles
- Pixel exclusive changes and privacy updates
- Device control and permissions
- Screen recorders and other misc. features
Conversations, Media, and chat bubbles
The major change that android 11 made is the change in conversations. Android versions are very rich in notification systems and now it has updated to make user easier to reply and respond to conversations. Android 11 has an easier way of responding to conversations and it could be much helpful if you are having trouble in managing so many chats. The stock messaging app is also updated in android 11. You have the authority to prioritize notifications as you want. This option is available for both in-app and in-system. The in-app notifications can be customized in a very beautiful way.
Another update which is very useful is media control update. You can now control music, video and every type of media on lock screen as well as in background. As in android 10 you can play a video in background if you want to listen to only audio. This is the major feature. We noticed some bugs and errors in media controls for example when we closed the music app the background playing music also closed but now in android 11 it will not be closed.
The chat bubbles also help in responding easier to messages and other chats. Firstly we saw chat bubbles in the messenger app only but now android 11 gives authority to create chat bubbles on other apps also.
Pixel exclusive changes and privacy updates
The android 11 gives some of the special changes only in Google pixels phones. The Google pixel now uses bottom line to show app suggestions. We can see many other changes in Google pixel’s UI but unfortunately the other phones will not be given these updates. Android always provides some special features and designs only for Google’s phones.
Privacy update is the major portion of any update. Today internet world if full of hackers, that’s why security of phone should be very strong and should remain updated in order to protect your data from hackers. Android 11 has updated all the privacy features in order to keep you protected from hackers and spammers.
Device control and permissions
Device controls are very important and are helpful in the ease of using a device. By device controls you can use some app and you can permit it to use your location, camera etc. Permissions play an important role in the privacy and data sharing of any phone. Android is constantly updating their permission features and android system asks for permissions before using any app because this is person’s privacy. Android’s security constantly updates their permission system in order to protect your data from hackers. You have also the permission whether to allow any app using internet or not.
Screen Recorder and misc. features
Since android 10 came the screen recorders were enhanced and bugs were fixed also some of the phones provided internal audio recording feature but android 11 officially released internal audio recording and enhanced the screen recorder feature for smooth recording especially for gaming. In android 10 the screen recorder when used the games lag but now it is more enhanced and updated and some of the known bugs were fixed.
Some other features of Android 11 are:
