Enhanced Power Menu: With Android 11, users will get a whole new power menu with quick access to smart home controls, power options and Google Wallet Cards among others.
Granular Back Gestures: With Android 11, users will get a granular back gesture to eliminate the frustrations people feel when they want to go back to a few Page or Window or open the hamburgers menu and access something else. android 11 now has settings to control the sensitivity of the left and right edges allowing or better control.
Pixel 4 requires users to open both the eyes to unlock: Gone are the days when your Pixel device would sometimes open even when your eyes are closed. Android 11 will compel users to keep their eyes open to unlock which is far more secure than otherwise.
Auto Dark Mode: Although a similar feature is available on certain phones with custom UIs baked over Android OS, Google has added this feature that drives Dark Mode to activate and deactivate automatically based on the time of the day. The feature is now built-in and should operate more efficiently than a manual method.
Enhanced One-Time Permissions: Android 11 will revoke permissions to location, camera and other services whenever an app asks for it thereby making the system secure against ‘Use only when the app is in use’ option.
At the end of August or early September 2020, the final Android 11 ASOP will launch for Pixel devices, and soon, it will be rolled out on other devices as well. There’s no confirmed date related to its official release yet but hey, it will be available soon.
