Bubbles were introduced in
One UI 2. In One UI 3 (running on top of Android 11) it should be enabled by default for all apps. that you can take advantage of these chat bubbles (popularized by Facebook Messenger) on WhatsApp, Samsung Messages and more.
3. Send images in notification responses
When responding to a message in the notification screen by pressing "Reply", you can now add an image to your answer.
4. Wireless Debugging
One UI 3 allows you to send ADB and fastboot commands without physically connecting your phone to your computer. We've talked at length about how ADB can improve your Galaxy experience, and wireless debugging makes it even easier.
5. Improved foldable support
In Android 10, Google added native support for foldable devices such as the Galaxy Fold and Z Flip. In Android 11, a new API allows apps to determine the angle of the fold. This addition allows Samsung's Flex mode to work with even more apps.
6. Use Bluetooth headphones in airplane mode
While listening to audio through Bluetooth headphones or speakers, airplane mode will no longer disconnect your phone.
7. Better Keyboard Transition
With new APIs, apps can control how the keyboard animates on and off the screen. The new set of tools makes the whole process smoother and flows better with the app.
9. Better battery life at higher refresh rates
App developers can now set a preferred refresh rate. For games, developers can set the refresh rate to a maximum of 120 Hz from the Galaxy S20, but for the camera or YouTube, it can be lowered to 60 Hz to save battery.
10. Restricted Access to Your Permissions
One UI 3 contains some changes to how apps can request permissions. First, the permission prompt has a new option, 'Only this time', which limits access until you close the app. After that it has to request access again.
11. Restricted access to background location
Your location data is also better protected in Android 11. Apps can no longer prompt you directly to access your location in the background. Instead, they need to specify why they need it and then direct you to a page in Settings where you can enable
12. Forever Deny
Apps can only ask you for the same permission once more if you refuse it. After a second refusal, Android will interpret this as "don't ask again" and ignore further requests.
13. Improved Spam Protection
Caller ID and Spam Protection features are getting better in Android 11. Call Screening Apps now have access to the authentication status of SHAKEN / STIR (a new system being used by US carriers) to improve the ability to identify callers. . It is not yet known whether Samsung will take advantage of this with its phone app, but it is a good option.
14. Use weak biometrics to unlock apps
The Galaxy S20 allows you to unlock your phone with both the secure built-in fingerprint scanner and the unsafe camera-based facial recognition. However, when apps implement biometrics support, the only biometrics they can access is the fingerprint scanner.
In Android 11, Google created a level system, dividing biometrics into three categories: strong, weak, and device reference. Apps can decide which authentication strength they need, allowing less sensitive apps to use the Galaxy S20's Face Unlock to restrict access.
15. Better support for curved displays
Android & # 39; s Display Crop API has added support for circular count displays (perforation hole screen) and waterfall display (where the screens bend all over the side edge) . Both types of displays are said to be included in the Galaxy Note 20. With this enhanced support, apps can take better advantage of the waterfall display, prevent text from being cut off by the camera cutout, and enable the
immersive mode without the shot of a black bar.
16. Lower latency for Stadia
There will be two major additions to Samsung devices that will help reduce latency when playing cloud gaming services such as Stadia and GeForce Now. The first is the addition of low-latency video decoding. Android 11 makes it easier for devices to decode this type of video, enabling these cloud services.
Second, Android 11 supports the low-latency mode of HDMI 2.1. This mode will essentially enable game mode on your television, where lower input has priority over image processing. And since Samsung supports HDMI over USB-C, you can use this feature to play Stadia on your TV without needing a Chromecast Ultra.

17. Better Bluetooth
Android 11 uses a new Bluetooth stack known as Babeldorsche. Little is known about this stack except it is better than the stack currently in use and will improve the ability of Android 11 phones to pair and maintain connections with Bluetooth devices.
19. Improved gesture navigation
In addition to being able to use Android 10's gesture navigation with third-party apps (thanks to One UI 2.5), One UI 3 allows you to configure the back button sensitivity for both sides. Ideally, you would decrease the sensitivity on the left, making it possible to use gestures to re-open the hamburger menu.
20. Resume on restart
In Android 11, you no longer need to unlock your phone to receive notifications after the restart. Instead, apps can access the Credential Encrypted storage to fill your notification shadow with incoming alerts. This way you won't miss anything if your phone is updated overnight.
