If you’ve been looking forward to the changes and improvements and new features of Android 11, you’ll be pleased to learn that Google has since officially released the latest update to their Android operating system. Naturally, the update is expected to find its way to Google’s Pixel handsets first, but hopefully it won’t take too long before it rolls out to other devices.
The beauty of Android over iOS is that Android usually lets users choose their default apps, while iOS pretty much limits users to the default apps. However, the bad news is that come Android 11, Google seems to be clamping down on allowing users to pick their default camera within apps.
One of the new features that Google is bringing to Android 11 are Bubbles. The concept of chat heads isn’t new and we’ve seen Facebook use it with Messenger in the past, but with Android 11, Google is bringing it about in a big way. In fact, according to 9to5Google, it seems that Google could be bringing its Assistant feature to Bubbles.
On your computer if you deleted a file, it would end up in your computer’s trash can. This is done to help you potentially retrieve files you might not have intended to delete, but accidentally done so. However, on your phone, there isn’t anything quite like that, and while you can retrieve deleted files, it’s not so straightforward.
Back in the early days of the smartphone, we would see phones launch with 16GB of storage which is paltry by today’s standards. This is because display resolutions were low, meaning that apps would not require hi-def assets. Our cameras were also pretty low quality back then too, which meant that photos and videos wouldn’t necessarily take up too much space.
This year, Google is expected to release a new major Android update. Given that last year saw Android 10 released, this means that this year will be Android 11. For those who are curious as to what the update could be bringing to the table, you will be pleased to learn that Google has since announced that the Android 11 beta is now available for download.
