The Android 2020 update is set to Android 11 – it’s not speculation, but the fact, since Google has confirmed the name itself. This follows because, with Android 10, Google promised to follow a numerical operating system organization system.
This means that while Android 9 was Android Pie, Android 10 was not Android Quiche and Android 11 will not be Android Rhubarb and custard (unfortunately) – but it will be packed with updates and probably some long-awaited features.
Android 11, Google’s next operating system, will be unveiled in mid-2020 before it was released for Pixel devices around September, and then rolled out for other Android devices from the end of 2020 until 2021.
In the middle of 2021, a road is gone, but we have already begun to hear rumors and news about the upcoming Android operating system. Here we gather everything we know about Android 11.
Android 11 release date
Google tends to reveal some of the features of its latest operating system on Google IO in May, before releasing the Pixel phone operating system in September – this year, for example, it debuted on Pixel 4.
Subsequently, various smartphone brands will slowly get their devices qualified for the update. OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro were the first non-Google smartphones that came with Android 10 in the box, but it could be another company for Android 11.
But not all smartphone manufacturers are upgrading immediately, and it is likely that there will be a time in 2021 that all smartphones that can upgrade have the upgrade available.
Android 11 features
There is only one Android 11 feature that we know of so far – it has been confirmed for the operating system, so it’s not just speculation.
This feature is ‘Scoped Storage’, which was originally supposed to be available on Android 10, but Google pushed it back due to complaints from Android developers.
Scoped Storage is a new way of organizing what information and files your apps can read – in short, it speeds up memory readings, improves your security and prevents you from having to give all new app permissions.
It’s the only Android 11 feature we know of, but since Android 10 isn’t available on most devices yet, it will take a while before we hear more.
What we want to see in Android 11
These are the improvements we want to see in Android 11, which we still do not have in the recent build of Google’s operating system.
A new NFC file sharing option
With Android 10 came the removal of Android Beam, which allows phones to share files over NFC. All you had to do was tap phones together to share files, but it’s gone now.
It would be useful to have an easy-to-use option that lets you share photos, videos, music or other files just by pushing the phones against each other – at the moment it can be a hassle to use a specific app to do so, and Apple’s Airdrop is a useful feature that has no equivalent in Android.
Enhanced Dark Mode
The dark mode is not for everyone, but those who use it love it or at least want it, but in Android 10 it has many problems.
First of all, not many applications have their own dark modes, not even all Google applications, so using your smartphone with the dark mode activated can see it jump directly from dark to light applications and back again.
Second, in applications that have a dark mode, part of the text does not change color and may remain invisible; This really happens in Google search, so you cannot see the suggested results.
For the dark mode to be useful in Android smartphones, it must be really useful for most applications, rather than just an optional toggle here and there.
Extended chat ‘bubbles’
One of the new features of Android 10 was the introduction of chat bubbles, similar to Facebook Messenger, placed on other applications, which allow you to see all your conversations in several applications, all in an easily accessible format.
However, not all applications are compatible, and although some of those used to send messages to people, there are many that are not, with only the main text messaging application and Google Hangouts, compatible. That means that if you want to have conversations about several applications, you will continue to use those applications for the most part.
It would be really useful if more applications became compatible: WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Twitter and maybe even dating applications. Then, it would be incredibly easy to keep track of your various conversations in all the different applications that fill your phone.
