A day after making Android 11 operating system official, Google has now also introduced the toned-down version of the same with the launch of Android 11 (Go edition). In its blog post announcing the new features of Android 11 (Go edition), Google has also said that this edition will be available on all new devices with up to 2GB of memory.
For those unaware, the Go edition of Android was first introduced in 2018 and Google claims that it runs on over 100 million entry-level devices through apps and features specifically built to address local needs.
The Android 11 (Go Edition) comes with a claim of 20% faster loading time for apps as compared to how they opened on Android 10 (Go edition).
Just like the main Android 11 version, Android 11 (Go Edition) also shows its users their conversations in a dedicated space in the notification section. Also, it offers the same privacy enhancements as the Android 11 by offering one-time permissions to apps such as for microphone, camera or location. Further, in case there is an app that hasn’t been used in a long time, Android 11 will also “auto-reset” its app permissions and notify the user about the same.
Google has also introduced gesture-based navigation support for actions like going to home screen, navigating backward and switching between apps using swipes. Besides that, Google claims that it has introduced improvements to its suite of apps that were created specifically for Android Go devices. For example, it has introduced a Safe Folder feature in Files by Google by storing them in a 4-digit PIN-encrypted folder.
