About Android 11

Android 11 is the latest Android version you can get right now. Talking about the changes over Android 10, Android 11 brings many changes although UI remains kind of the same. Android 11 is a mature operating system and here are some of the new best features:

Better Notifications

Android 11 improves Notification in a couple of ways. First of all, Notifications are now categorized into three parts: Conversation, Alerting, and Silent.

The conversation category contains all the conversation, chat, messages Notifications and you can also prioritize certain chats over others. As Chats and Text messages can be important, this category stays at the top of the Notification drawer.

Then there are Alerting notifications that are just all notification other than conservations and finally the silent notifications where all notification from the app that is silenced by you are placed.

The second big change to notifications is the new “Notification History” feature. You can now watch all the notification you received in the last 24 hour time period.

The third change is the mini music player that used to live in the notification section, now lives in the Quick Setting section. The working is still the same, you can swipe to close it and use it just like you used to.

Chat Bubbles

If you use Facebook Messenger, you may be aware of Chat bubbles. It is a small Chat head that appears on top of all other apps so you can quickly send and read messages without changing the Apps. This is a great feature if you chat a lot.

New Screen Recorder

Android 11 comes with a built-in Screen recorder that can be found in the Quick tiles section. Screen recorder is not a new feature considering that there are hundreds of recorder apps already on the Play store and all Custom ROMs come with a native Screen recorder. Anyway, this new feature will make things more simple now.

Smart Device Controls

Smart devices are becoming more common, so Google added a new Smart device control section that allows you to control all of your smart devices from one place.

New Privacy Features

Every Android iteration comes with improved Privacy features and Android 11 is no exception. In Android 10, if you install an App, you can choose to give the app permissions all the time, only when the app is open or not give any permission at all.

Android 11 improves these permissions in a couple of ways. Now, you can give permission to an app only once. So Android will revoke the permission once you are done using the app and closes it. And another feature of Android 11 is the “Auto-reset” of permissions. if you haven’t used an app in a while, then the permissions will be revoked.

Other Features:

  • Schedule Dark Mode
  • Security Update via Play Store
