Android 11, your phone could automatically mute notification sounds and vibrations while you’re using the camera app,
Android 11 brings a feature some custom Android forks already have – built-in screen recording. This lets you use easily-accessible controls within the phone to create a video of what’s on your screen, similar to screenshots.
You can even record the sound of your phone, or use the mic to narrate what you’re doing, so this should be a great feature for creating short-form video
New conversation tab :
This way you can easily see if people need you, and reply straight away too. You can also now pin conversations to ‘Bubbles’ – you might have seen these for Facebook Messenger, where a floating icon appears above other apps to show you that you have a message.
Now you can get messages from more apps to appear as bubbles, and you can pin them there too so the chat is always easily-accessible.
A related improvement is that Gboard, the default Android keyboard, will now auto-fill forms with relevant information, similar to what Chrome currently does, which should save time if you’re frequently filling out your information.
Related to this, the Android 11 sharing functions have seen wider rollout to apps, so you can easily copy and paste images, text and videos from one app and send them straight to another.
Smart camera and media control’s:
From one easily-accessible menu (accessed by long-pressing the power button) you can control all the IoT (Internet of Things) devices you have connected to your phone, as well as NFC bank cards.
Security and privacy:
The Android 11 update brings some changes to app permissions. Now, you can grant an app permission to, say, your camera or location, on a one-off basis, instead of the existing options of ‘all the time’ and ‘only while using the app’.
In addition, your phone will automatically revoke permissions for apps if you haven’t used them in a while
Talking of home, there’s a new Bedtime Mode in the phone which you can set to run during the night, which turns on Do Not Disturb and makes the phone screen black-and-white to protect your vision.
There are new media controls too. It’s now easier to make music play from other devices connected to your phone, like Bluetooth speakers or other gadgets.
Apparently, the hands-free mode is now ‘faster and easier to use’. A bigger change is that the mode now works offline, so you don’t need to always be connected to use it. These changes should hopefully make Android 11 a lot more accessible, letting people stay connected regardless of disability.
