The next major update to Google’s mobile operating system, Android 11, is likely to begin on September 8. In a video from the company’s “Hey Google” Smart Home Summit, the date is shown on a slide. In the video about 18 minutes, we can clearly see that “The list of Android 11 releases on September 8” is at the top of the slide, and when it comes to the new Android 11 power menu, the host says, “We’re going to be available everywhere on September 8th.”
Last month, Google released the first public beta of Android 11 and said the official launch would take place later in the third quarter.
Android 10 was launched on September 3 last year, so 8 thinly in line with Google’s schedule.
Android 11 includes several improvements, including revamping notification prompts to give messaging apps their own “conversation section.” The update also adds native screen recording and “bubble” features that are located on top of other apps, making it easy for users to send back chat messages without having to switch apps. The media control function in Quick Settings has also been redesigned, and the menu that appears when you press and hold the power button can now do more different things.
