After spending a few months on testing and code review, Google is rolling out Android to the smartphones. This is an over-the-air software update for Google Pixels devices, as well as smartphones from OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Realme. Hopefully, other smartphone manufacturers will be joining the regime soon enough. As expected, Android11 has brought a plenty of new features including message bubbles, redesigned notifications, a new power menu, a new media player widget, screen recording, and much more.

 

The most exciting feature is the bubble chart just like the one Facebook uses, but they are integrated into Android 11 and can be used for any app by floating on top of whatever you are using. You can also hold the physical button used to power the phone to view your Google Pay cards, and that playback controls have been moved from the notification tray to the Settings panel now.

 

With Android 11, you need any additional App to record the screen. Google has also implemented some changes for users who take their privacy a little more serious. LIke you can opt-in for one-time access to your mic, camera, or location by the app, so that each time you open the app, it will ask for your permission again.

 

As per the reports from various sources, following phones are getting the Android 11 OS.
