Despite attempts by insiders to find out more information about the Android 11 operating system, Google is trying to avoid leaks. But one mistake by the administrators of the developer section led to the fact that the network has a list of innovations related to the OS, and the OS itself was offered to try out the authors of applications.
For several hours, a special section of Google's official website for developers was decorated with an invitation to test Android 11 Developer Preview, but then the company closed the page, returning the previous description of the advantages and features of Android 10.
Apparently, Google had an accidental false start, and the offer was published too early. However, insiders attributed this situation to the fact that the first beta versions of the new OS will be available much earlier this year than in the case of Android 10.
Of the features that were listed in the description for Android 11, it is worth paying attention to a few key points:
- changing the operation of the application after it is released under the new OS;
- Improved user privacy protections - they will be taken into account by application developers after the release of Android 11;
- New APIs related to sending data, working with media, biometrics, NNAPI and other functions.
Separately, it is worth noting the presence of an item related to the operation of the interface of the new OS on smartphones with flexible displays. Google has already created an SDK and an emulator for devices like Samsung Galaxy Fold, and with the release of Android 11, the corporation plans to improve support for such gadgets.
