Here are the top features of the Android 11 that came so far
There is a chat bubble in that when you received any message you don’t need to open the app every time. You just need to tab the bubble and a small window will open where you can quickly reply to the messages and the chat bubble is enabled by default.
Better Permission Control
Sick from granting permission for every single thing like location, mic and etc. Android 11 makes this task easy by giving you 3 options ‘only this time’, ‘while using the app’ or ‘deny’. Choose one of them as per the usage of the app.
Conversation in the Notification Shade
The chat bubble is awesome, but what if it doesn’t work on your phone. Google has something for this scenario. With the downward swipe, you can see the conversation in the notification shade on your go. This makes the conversation more convenient without opening the app.
Send images from Notification Shade
In the quick reply facility, you can’t send the images. But in Android 11 this issue is no more. Users can copy the image to their Gboard and send them in the chat without opening the app.
Schedule Dark Mode
As per the right now situation, the user can allow only one mode at a time either bright mode or dark mode. Android 11 has changed it. You can schedule your dark and bright mode by opting for the time.
Mute vibration while using Camera App
In Android 11 there will be no nuisance of the vibration caused by the incoming call or alarm while using any camera app.
New Motion sense Gesture
With Android 11, google pixel 4 gets the air motion sense gesture feature. Users can easily pause or play the music by just tapping in the air or mimicking the top gesture in the air.
Bluetooth remains active while Flight Mode
Till now when we put our phone in flight mode our Bluetooth will automatically be turned off. But in Android 11, this issue will no more as putting your phone in flight mode, Bluetooth will not turn off.
Pin Apps to share Menu
Android 11 will allow users to pin up to four of their several commonly used apps to the share menu. Users can do so by just long-pressing on an app’s icon in the share menu and then tapping on the ‘Pin’ button.
