Every year, before releasing the new version of Android, Google launches a beta and developer preview period for that update that most probably starts with the Pixel devices. Continuing its tradition, the tech giants took the landing page live today for Android 11 Developer Preview.
Although we don’t have any information of all the features coming with Android 11, we have got some hints at features like ‘Share-to-Print‘ and dark mode scheduling.
As spotted by Android Police, today, we’re getting our first actual clues to Android 11’s feature set and when we’ll be able to get our hands on it, thanks to a whole page dedicated to the Android 11 Developer Preview. However, after a short span, this page was reflected back to the Android 10 Developer update. But we found the three core tenets Google shared about what developers should expect from Android 11.
- BEHAVIOR CHANGES – System changes that may affect your app when it’s running on Android 11.
- PRIVACY FEATURES – New safeguards to protect user privacy that you’ll need to support in your app.
- NEW FEATURES & APIS – APIs for foldable, sharing, connectivity, media, NNAPI, biometrics, and more.
None of the links on the page — such as to enroll your Pixel into the Android 11 Developer Preview or download a factory image to flash onto your phone — were working, leading to pages from last year’s beta program. But luckily, it leads us to know some of the features that will hit with the Android 11.
Since the page got removed immediately after a short span, we can only assume that it was simply pushed live too early. Android Q Beta 1 didn’t arrive until the middle of March, and so, we can’t expect to see Android 11 preview before the end of March.
