Google released an early build today, Wednesday Android 11 for developers, about a month earlier than previous releases. The preview for developers work with Pixel devices and is available for download only developers will have to go through it manually. A public beta is expected to be released in May, possibly with the Google I / O developer conference.
Google has reportedly stopped naming new versions of its operating system in every major Android update and is using numbers. So we have the first Android 11.
Google warns regular users that this version is only for developers and if they want to try it out they should not use it on their main phone.
The first developer preview is available for Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4 XL. To install the preview, you will need to download the factory image of your device and install it manually. If you decide to try the preview and want to go back to Android 10, you will need to reset your device to lab settings.
The Android 11 includes new APIs for connectivity and improvements to 5G connections for corporate users using the Android Work Profile. Messages also change to Android 11, with a new chat approach that allows wider access to the Bubbles feature of Android 10.
Google has also announced a schedule for its upcoming preview updates Android 11. The developer preview will be released by April, while the first beta will probably be released in May. Google will continue to update the beta throughout the third quarter of 2020, until the final, official version of Android 11.
When the developers start installing it Android 11 to test their applications, more features will definitely be announced. But we'll probably have to wait until Google I / O launches in May to find out what new Google has added to Android 11.
