Android 11 Beta is ready for install on Pixel 2 phones

Google releases Android 11 Beta for Pixel 2 phones, . It is still open for feedback and gives developers a chance to make sure their apps function on the new version of Android.

If you want to try it out for yourself head on over to the Beta website  and register your device and opt in to the Beta. The OTA update should arrive on your device not long after.  New features and changes will be noticed by users. In the Beta, Bubbles is a feature to help you respond to and engage in important conversations without having to switch back to the messaging app. Using Gboard in Android 11 will now give you automatic suggestions for emoji and text using “secure on-device intelligence.”

In the Beta, a long press of the power button brings up your home control center. Android 11 Beta also brings new media controls to Android allowing you to switch the device your media is playing on a lot easier. Privacy was considered in full once more with this Android version. As an example,  one-time permissions which allow you to grant apps access to your microphone, camera or location just that one single time. If you haven’t used an app for a while all permissions associated with it will “auto-reset” and once you then do use the app it will need your permissions once again. Other new thins to see: a screen recorder, updated voice access, improved performance and a new share menu.
