There is not much time left until the official presentation of the stable version of Android 11. Google recently unveiled an open beta of the new version of the Green Robot. One of the most interesting features is the appearance of a Recycle Bin for deleted photos and videos.
Android 11 has a Recycle Bin for deleted photos and videos
Now, when you give any application the ability to the store data, the Trash will automatically turn on, similar to what we can see in Windows. The difference in the operation of the Recycle Bin will concern the ability to completely delete files from the device.
Files will be completely removed from the device automatically only after 30 days have passed after the deletion action. Apparently, in the future, it will be possible to delete files immediately, without a mandatory stop in the Recycle Bin, but this is only the guesswork of geeks and developers.
Fans of Google know that their favorite company has implemented a similar system in their Google Photos photo viewer for quite some time. In it, if you delete a photo or video, it is not erased immediately, but is moved to the trash. If the user does not return the files from the recycle bin, they are deleted permanently after 60 days.
Android 11 Beta 1 features
Some of the features of the Android 11 Beta 1 are:
The notification bar at the top of Android 11 provides a dialogue notification option. When you enter the notification, you can open it as a bubble and create a conversation shortcut on the home screen or set a reminder.
Bubbles have already appeared on Android 10 when Google included it in the developer options. On Android 11, Google has added a new sub-menu to enable bubble notifications. This sub-menu is located in Settings – Application Notification – Notifications – Bubble.
On Android 11, the keyboard can automatically fill in application-specific content, which is similar to the browser’s auto-fill password.
Media control allows users to more easily switch to other audio and video content output devices. Android 11 has added a media control center in the notification bar, where you can quickly connect with other devices, such as Pixel Buds.
Android 11 allows users to give one-time use permissions to applications that request access to microphones, cameras, and geographic locations.

These are only some descriptions and images of the Android 11 Beta 1. This new Android system from Google obviously comes with other features. For now, only Pixel devices are getting this update. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t take long for this update to start arriving other Android smartphones. Of course, OEMs will add their own tweaks so there will be some differences from pure Android. For me, the conversation notification and keyboard tweak look great. Which of these features appeals to you? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below
