Below are all the changes that we have found in Android 11 so far. When we find new features and changes, and as more developer and beta examples are released, we will update this list with the new info so that you always have a clear idea of what to expect if the stable version is released later this year. phone is coming. So get excited, because the latest version of Android has arrived!
. Scheduled dark theme
With Android 11 you can now manage the dark theme in the same way as the blue light filter in night mode. In the settings you can now schedule the dark theme to be turned on automatically during certain hours or from sunset to sunrise.
There is a new section & # 39; Conversations & # 39; at the top of the notification bar above the standard notifications. This is the home base for all message app notifications you have, so it keeps your chat alerts in front and center.
Warnings in the Conversations section come with additional options when you hold them down. With & # 39; Show as bubble & # 39; notifications from this app are displayed in a floating bubble. "Favorite" gives that message thread an even higher priority and places it at the top of the notification shadow when multiple messages are displayed.
3. Built-in screen recorder
Google teased it in Android 10, but a built-in screen recorder is finally here in Android 11. You have to add it to your Quick settings, but if you do, just tap the switch and confirm at the prompt to to record your screen. It is a bare recorder, but it works well.
4. Pin apps in the Share menu
You can now pin apps again in the Share menu after the feature is briefly removed for Android 10. Long press an app and choose "Pin" to place the app at the top of the Share menu  Android 11 Changelog – an always updated list of new functions ” width=”532″ height=”532″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>
5. Sending images in notifications Answers
When you reply to a message from your notification shadow via the & # 39; Reply & # 39; in the notification, you can now add images to your message. Small function, but great for usability.
In previous versions of Android, turning on airplane mode would disconnect your phone from Bluetooth accessories, even if you were currently listening to audio. Google will finally change this behavior to Android 11. When you are connected to an audio device via Bluetooth, you do not disconnect the flight mode.
To help this, Android 11 has the function by default. In Android 10 you had to navigate to the App Info page of the app and first activate "Bubbles". But now, as long as the app supports it, you can immediately benefit from it.
11. New back cover gestures (probably Pixel-exclusive)
Perform a "user selected action"  And before you worry about accidentally activating this new feature, Google has added "ports" to prevent double-ticking from being triggered unintentionally. These include visibility of the camera, when you charge the phone, and similar rules.
According to XDA, the code contains indications that Google is transforming the Power menu into a hub for smart home switches. In addition to turning off your phone, you can add switches to the new grid-like user interface that can control IoT devices connected to Google Home.
14. Quick Access Wallet
Google has created a new QuickAccessWalletService, which can use any payment app, with which you can manage your payment card or reward card via the flow menu. In other words, you can hold down your on / off button to quickly select a contactless payment method.
15. New authorization options
There are some changes to permissions in Android 11. The first change is a new "Ask every time" option. Although this feature is available on all permissions when used through the system settings, it only appears in the pop-up permission prompt when an app requests access to the camera, microphone, or location of the device.
For apps that request these permissions, a new prompt is displayed with three options: & # 39; Only this time & # 39 ;, & # 39; While using the app & # 39; and & # 39; Reject & # 39 ;. If you & # 39; Only this time & # 39; , you will be asked again the next time the app wants access to that data. The first maintains the & # 39; questions every time & # 39 ;. For the other permission, the prompt only gives you the option "Allow" or "Deny", whereby the former gives the app permanent access to that sensor.
16. Access to background location must be granted manually
noticed that something was missing in the permission prompt described above: an option "Always allow". Well, for your own safety, Google has removed this option from the location access permission prompt.
Instead, Google asks developers to show in the user interface why they need the background location permission with a button that directs you to the relevant system settings screen to grant this permission. They must also allow users to continue using the app if they refuse access to the background location permission.
17. Automatic blocking of spam power prompts
In Android 11, Android will, after it has twice denied access, ignore further requests from the app. The system will see while you say "do not ask again" and will not disturb you again. Nice.
Android 11 brings a much needed update of the Motion Sense of the Pixel 4. User reports point to improved motion detection, but more importantly, there is a new gesture: by touching the sky above the screen you can pause and play your music.
