Check out what's new in the first beta of Android 11

Yesterday (20), Google released the first beta of Android 11, its new mobile operating system that will be officially launched in the third quarter of this year. This is the first of many other compilations that I have seen, but we still have some interesting news that can be tested by users.

First of all, it is worth remembering that many of these features were already present in beta versions of Android 10 and never reached the final version. Therefore, there is a possibility for Google to remove some functions during the testing period. Below you can see what's new:

  • Bubbles: just like Facebook Messenger, Android 11 now displays these small floating "balls" that allow you to easily access the app on any screen. At the moment, the feature works only in the Google Messaging app, but it may arrive in other apps in the future;
  • Conversations: In the system's notification area, there is a special section dedicated to conversations. Android 11 now separates and prioritizes communication with your contacts;
  • App permissions: The new mobile OS from Google is also able to release temporary permissions for apps, allowing them to access the camera and internal storage, for example, for a specific period of time;
  • Screen recording: In this version, there is a native app to record your smartphone screen;
  • Dark theme: The dark theme now delivers a scheduling feature. With it enabled, users can set a predetermined time for the resource to take action.

Other minor changes were also introduced, such as airplane mode that does not disable Bluetooth and a new app for capturing screen prints, for example. Those who want to test the first beta of Android 11, can download the system's ISO from the Google website. At the moment, it is only compatible with the Pixel 2, 3 and 4 line.
