After a long waiting time and some beta updates, the first final version of Android 11 has already been released progressively. Google has carried out launching the best version of your operating system, although at the moment, only for some mobiles with his seal and other brands such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO and Realme.
Android 11 brings with it some new functions that, although most users who used the beta version already know some of them, it is time to officially present the best of this update. With that said, here we have 5 of those new features.
Built-in screen recording function
This may be one of the most requested functions, since recording the screen of our Android mobile has certainly been somewhat complicated, since third-party apps must be used to achieve this goal. Nothing to do with what happens in Apple phones, who have already had this function for a long time.
Google has heard this request from its followers and in this new version the option to record the screen is now available, the sound of the microphone or the device itself without the need for third-party applications.
This floating bubbles feature basically allows the user to reply to conversations without having to exit what you are doing to go to the messaging app in question. If you use Facebook Messenger you will know perfectly what this feature is about, which makes multitasking on your mobile easier and less stressful when it comes to doing them.
More restrictive and improved permissions
Since the launch of Android 10, Google began to take a little more seriously the issue of privacy, which the vast majority of users care a lot. In this new version, the applications you use will have to ask you for access to certain functions, as are the camera and the mobile microphone. In addition to this, Google will also automatically restore the permissions given to an application if it has not been used in a long time.
Android 11 keeps conversations separate from the other notifications that we receive on our mobile in a common and current way. In this way, notifications are given absolute priority through their own section, thus achieving that you can manage them all from one place, even if you have muted notifications.
This is one of the best functions that we find with the arrival of Android 11, since this help so that your important conversations are not forgotten within the large number of notifications that our smartphone captures every day.
Quick access to smart home devices
We know how difficult it can be to manage smart devices in your home if you have them. Because of this, Google got down to business and included a simple solution to make this job easier. It is a controls menu from which you can access the own controls of all those smart devices from the power button menu.
By pressing it for a long time, you will be able to access that new control center, from where we already told you, you will have the ability to control smart lights, thermostats, locks or any other smart device that is in your home.
