Google released a third public version of Android 11 today, meaning the next big update to Google’s mobile operating system is one step closer to a formal meeting. Instead of introducing too much new content into Android 11 Beta 3, Google is more focused on bug fixes, following the last announcement of a move to platform stabilization. However, the “exposure notification system” associated with the COVID-19 close contact tracking service has seen some changes.

Users can now run the Exposure Notification service without opening the location service. Other improvements have focused on getting app and game developers ready for the official arrival of Android 11.
Developers need to complete compatibility testing as soon as possible and publish it to the Play Store. Otherwise, after upgrading to Android 11, the user experience may be compromised.
Finally, Google is committed to officially launching the Android 11 mobile operating system in the third quarter, with supported devices including the Pixel 2 and later models, and we expect to learn more in September.
