With Google I/O cancelled entirely due to COVID-19 outbreak, the search-engine giant is now hosting its Android 11: Beta Launch Show on June 3. As expected, the event will live stream on YouTube at the scheduled date and time. During the event, the company will talk about numerous topics right from basics to in-depth discussions for developers.

The event will also consist of a live Q&A session in which anyone can participate by simply using #AskAndroid hashtag. Most importantly, we will see Google launching the first Android 11 Beta. For those who’re unaware, the first Beta was initially expected this month. As expected, it got delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Lastly, Google is inviting sketchnoters to participate in this event by creating visual summaries of the event. The participating sketchers can make use of #Android11 hashtag for a chance to get featured.
For those who’re wondering whether the brand will showcase its Pixel 4a smartphone at the event, the answer is most likely, No!. Considering the recent rumours and leaks, the Pixel 4a will not see its official announcement until mid-July.
