On September 8, Google launched Android 11, a new version of Android. For starters, it will be available for Pixel devices.

There are no major UI changes and Android 11 doesn't seem to have much in the way of standout features, but there are a few new features related to the focus on people, control, and privacy.

In terms of people, messages will be grouped into a bubble, a unique display similar to Facebook Messenger. It's also necessary to support on the apps, but you can switch between apps in one bubble without having to launch multiple apps one by one.

In terms of controls, a menu has been added that allows users to control smart devices, such as turning smart lighting on and off, by pressing and holding the power button. You can also easily

switch the output device for their audio or video content, whether it be headphones, speakers or TV from the quick settings.

Lastly, with regards to privacy, the permissions management has been changed and One-time permissions have been added. Previously, there were three options for access to the microphone, camera, and location: "Allow all the time," "Deny," and "Allow only while the app is in use," but a new "Only this time" has been added. Selecting this will allow one-time access to the microphone and camera, and will prompt you again the next time you launch the app.

Other new features include the ability to automatically reset permissions for apps that have not been used for a while and set them again the next time they are launched.

Android 11 is already rolling out on select Pixel, OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO, and realme phones. The Xperia and Galaxy devices are expected to receive the update gradually in the coming months, although the delivery date varies by manufacturer and carrier.
