Google is dominating the world with its high-class software services, even though the tech giant from Mountain View is also active in the hardware area as well. Even Microsoft acknowledged that Android is the best operating system for mobile devices, and there’s no reason why Google won’t maintain its pace.
Android 11 beta was originally scheduled to drop during this month at the I/O Developers Conference. Google had to cancel the event due to the reason that you already guessed: the COVID-19 pandemic.
Android 11 not launching on June 3 anymore
The grand event was scheduled to occur on June 3, when Google should have livestreamed the #Android 11 The Beta Launch Show. A tweet made by software engineers from Google was conclusive enough:
“We are excited to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate. We are postponing the June 3rd event and beta release. We’ll be back with more on Android 11, soon.”
There’s not much info about the features of Android 11, but luckily enough, the internet is full of rumors and speculations. One of them is claiming that a feature called Nearby Sharing is on its way. This would allow Android users to share files with each other as they’re close.
Alphabetical release names for major versions of Android had been discontinued as of Android 10. The logo for the release of Android 11 features a dial turned to 11, which is a reference to the music mockumentary film dubbed This Is Spinal Tap. Android 11 will be the eleventh major release and the 18th version of the Android operating system.
