The impact of the new coronavirus has spread throughout the world. For the safety of everyone, some major events have been canceled. However, it appears that Google will not cancel the 2020 I / O conference. According to media reports, Google is currently contacting ticket winners for the 2020 I / O conference. It is also sending participants notice of payment of admission fees. The average audience is $ 1150 and the academic staff is $ 375. This means that the Android 11 launch will proceed according to schedule. Considering the current coronavirus, Google issued a special note to allow all I / O participants to cancel at any time before April 15, 2020, without having to worry about economic losses.
Ofcourse, the most attractive part of this developer conference is that Google will announce its latest Android 11 system. It is at this event that we will get official confirmation of the new features of Android 11. As of now, the Android 11 developer preview is already available. Developers are already tweaking this new system as much as possible.
ANDROID 11 DEVELOPER PREVIEW – WHAT ARE THE NEW FEATURES?
This new system brings a new link API to support 5G networks. Thus, developers can take advantage of the high speed and latency of 5G. With this, apps can automatically provide the corresponding high-quality video when a high-quality network is detected.
This new system also adds a Bandwidth Estimator API that allows developers to easily determine the amount of downstream/uplink bandwidth available without the application having to query or calculate their own estimates.
- Support for new screens
Today many Android OEM manufacturers have multiple screen devices. Now Android 11 has native support for these two screens. It also provides APIs for punch-hole and waterfall screens. With this, developers can make full use of the curved part of the waterfall screen and does not require a separate setting by the manufacturer.
- Hover chat bubbles
Android 11 has added a floating chat bubble function. As long as the app uses a new API, it can float the ongoing conversation in the form of a bubble on the screen.
In addition, copy and paste have also been upgraded. If the app supports a direct copy and paste of images, then Android 11 supports pasting pictures directly into the reply of the app. This reduces the need for users to cut between multiple apps.
- Privacy and permissions
Android 11 adds a one-time permission for location, microphone, and camera permissions. In other words, an app that has obtained a one-time permission will still ask the user to obtain authorization when it is next used.
This new system will also automatically block repeated permission requests from the app. If the user clicks twice to deny authorization, the system will automatically stop asking for authorization. Of course, the user can also manually adjust it in the settings.
- Screen recording
The screencast appeared in an earlier version of Android 10. However, Google later deleted this feature. Now, it can be seen and used in Android 11.
- Pixel 4 series changes
Android 11 also has an upgrade for the Pixel 4 series. This provides a new Motion Sense gesture that can pause music.
