Google today released the first beta of Android 11 and instead of a Livestream event, the company shared this launch information through its website.

Just like every year, Google announces all of the new features and developer guides at its annual Google I/O developer conference but due to the COVID-19, Google has canceled the launch event. Furthermore, the company later planned to showcase an online Android 11 beta launch show but postponed due to U.S. protests and demonstrations over racism.

According to Google the Android 11 is mainly focused on three key themes: People, Controls, and Privacy. These are described as below.

People: 

To make communication easier and simpler on your phone, Android 11 will move all of your conversations across multiple messaging apps to a dedicated space in the notification section. This makes it easy to see, respond to and manage your conversations all in one place.

Privacy:

With one-time permissions, you can grant apps access to your microphone, camera or location, just that one time. The next time the app needs access to these sensors, it will have to ask you for permission again.

In addition, if you haven’t used an app for an extended period of time, Android 11 will “auto-reset” all of the permissions associated with that app and notify you of the same. You can always choose to re-grant the app permissions the next time you open the app.
