Google was going to unveil Android 11 features at Google I/O which was going to happen in May. However, it is no longer happening because of COVID-19. Google officially announced that they are now going for numerical names, so it will be called “Android 11”. Most of the features are revealed through the Android Developer Preview.

Features

The new Android will be getting the Native Screen Recording feature this year. Apple already has this feature in iOS 11, iOS 12, and iOS 13, which means Google is not introducing a new feature. Another feature new Android Update is going to have is, muting notifications while using Camera, precisely while making a video. A very beneficial feature that they introduced in Android 11 is, notification history is accessible. In case you cleared the notifications from your phone’s home screen, it will still be available in the notification logs.

Airplane Mode will no longer affect Bluetooth anymore. Also, the latest Android OS update will make Android phones more secure. Now you can choose between granting an application to access your information “Just this once” or allow it forever. Another great feature they introduced is you can enable auto-on Dark Mode that will auto-activate or deactivate Dark Mode detecting the time of the day.
