You may not even have thought about this, but Android had a default limit on the amount of recorded video. Yes, Google has always taken care of your drive. True, lovers of family holidays and filming have been suffering all this time from perhaps useful, but terribly annoying policies.
If you want to shoot a bunch of videos in 4K, it won’t work. All material will either be split into parts or not fully retained. However, this will soon change with the advent of Android 11.
Android 11 removes the 4GB limit for video recording
According to AndroidPolice report, in the first beta of Android 11, the restriction on the size of videos has finally been removed, but a very short list of applications still supports this feature.
Unfortunately, Google Camera is not one of the supported applications, which, for obvious reasons, is a big disappointment for fans of mobile photography and video. Another well-known application will come to the rescue – Open Camera. For those who are going to shoot huge projects in size, it is worth taking a closer look at this option.
At the moment, there may already be other applications that allow you to save large files, but Open Camera is the first application that supports the correct operation of this feature.
One way or another, before the widespread implementation of this function, we will have to wait some more time. To begin with, we are waiting for the presentation of a stable version of Android 11, and then everything will depend on the manufacturers and their quickness and love for their fans.
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.
