Android 11

Eleventh major version of the Android mobile operating system

Android 11 is the eleventh major release and 18th version of Android, the mobile operating system developed by the Open Handset Alliance led by Google.[2] It was released on September 8, 2020.[3][4]

The first phone launched in Europe with Android 11 was the Vivo X51 5G[5] and after its full stable release, the first phone in the world which came with Android 11 after Google Pixel 5 was OnePlus 8T.[6][7]

As of September 2021[update], 30.08% of Android devices run Android 11 (API 30), making it the most used version of Android.[8]


Android 11 logo for Developer preview and Beta release

Android 11 was intended for three monthly developer preview builds to be released before the first beta release, initially due in May, with a total of three monthly beta releases before the actual release. A state of "platform stability" was planned for July 2020, and the final release occurred on September 8, 2020.[2][9][10]

The first developer preview build of Android 11 was released on February 19, 2020 as a factory image for supported Google Pixel smartphones (excluding the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL). Developer Preview 2 was then released on March 18,[11] followed by Developer Preview 3 on April 23.[12] On May 6, Google released an unexpected Developer Preview 4, as they pushed the whole roadmap for Android 11 forward a month, setting the date for the first beta for June 3.[13]

The release of the first public beta was originally set to take place on June 3 at Google I/O, which was ultimately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an online release event being planned instead.[14] Following the George Floyd protests, Google announced that the release of the first Android 11 beta would be postponed.[15] Beta 1 was finally released on June 10, 2020,[16] followed by Beta 2 on July 8.[17] A hotfix Beta 2.5 was then released on July 22,[18] with Beta 3 released on August 6.[19] It was released on September 8, 2020.[3][4]

User experience[edit]

Android 11 introduces "conversations" notifications; they are designed for chat and messaging, and can be presented in pop-up overlays known as "bubbles" when supported by apps. Conversations can also be marked as "priority" to give them greater prominence (pushing them to the top of notifications, and allowing them to bypass do not disturb mode). Notification history over the past 24 hours can also be displayed.[20] Bubbles is designed to replace the existing overlay permission, which is being deprecated in the future due to security (due to its use by clickjacking malware) and performance concerns.[21]

The menu displayed when holding the power button now includes an area devoted to controlling smart home devices (only on Pixel devices).[20] Media controls are displayed as part of the quick settings area and no longer as a persistent notification.[20] The screenshot button is moved to the recents screen (only on Pixel devices).[22][20] Apps can be pinned on the share menu.[20]

Android 11 includes a built-in screen recorder.[23]

The media player is now separate from the notifications. And if the user is running 2 or more media apps, the user can swipe from either side to switch between the media players.[24]


The voice control system is capable of recognizing screen context.[20]


Android 11 contains various APIs designed for detecting the presence of 5G network connectivity in order to provide enhanced in-app experiences.[25] Android 11 contains new APIs for handling devices with hinged displays (such as foldable smartphones) and ultra-curved "waterfall" displays.[26]

A new API can be used to monitor a device's temperature and adjust application operations accordingly.[26]OpenSL ES is deprecated in favor of Oboe. Android 11 supports wireless debugging.[26]

Android 11 Go Edition has performance improvements, privacy enhancement, increasing storage, upgraded RAM storage and new app features, with Google stating that apps would launch 20% quicker than on Android 10.[27]

Privacy and security[edit]

If automatically rebooting after a system update, apps can automatically resume and regain access to credential-encrypted storage without authentication.[28][26]

Android 11 introduces "one-time" permissions for camera, microphone, and location; when requested by an app, the user must choose whether to grant access whenever they are using the app, only once, or deny. Repeatedly denying permission will imply an indefinite rejection. Apps must require users to go to the system settings menu in order to enable background location tracking, and all "sensitive" permissions are automatically reset if the user has not used an app for several months.[20][29][30][31]

Apps targeting Android 11 are only allowed to access files in external storage that they have created themselves ("scoped storage"), preferably contained within an app-specific directory, and audio, image, and video files contained within the Music, Pictures, or Videos directories. Any other file may only be accessed via user intervention through the Storage Access Framework.[29][32][33]

To "ensure that the EXIF location metadata is correctly processed based on the location permissions defined within the app", Android 11 restricts image and video capture Intents to system camera apps only. This does not affect cameras built into apps (such as, for example, Instagram or Snapchat).[34][29][35]

Android users got a closer look at Google's newest operating system, Android 12, during Google's Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Prolaunch event. As of Tuesday, the new OS has started to roll out to all Google phones from the Pixel 3 and up, and will be coming to Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus, Xiaomi and other Android devices later this year. 

Android 12, which was first unveiled in February, appears to be similar in many ways to Android 11, with a few big new features and some performance fixes aimed at helping your phone run more smoothly. 

If you don't own a Pixel and can't wait for Google's new OS to make its way to your device, you can download and install the Android 12 developer preview now. But be warned that, as the developer preview, it likely has some bugs, and isn't meant for the average person to try out at this point -- especially not on your primary device.

Here are three of the biggest new features we've seen in Android 12 so far, compared to Android 11.

Now playing:Watch this: Our first look at Android 12


Privacy features for apps

Google is adding several new privacy features to apps to give users more transparency and control. According to the company's blog post, you can now see what an app is using your microphone or camera through an indicator on your phone's status bar. You're also given the option to completely disable any and all apps access to your microphone or camera in Quick Settings. Android 12 also lets you keep your exact location private by giving you an option to give apps your approximate location instead. 

According to a February Android Developers blog post, one Android 12 update gives you more information about how cookies can be used across sites, while another changes how apps export information to prevent them from accidentally exporting activities, services and receivers. 

It's worth noting that these policies are less strict than those previously seen in Apple's iOS 14 software releases, which include new app "nutrition labels" that tell people what personal data their apps are collecting, and a change in iOS 14.5 that requires developers to ask people for permission to gather data and track them across apps and websites.

Revamped notifications

With Android 12, Google is changing up the design of notifications to make them more modern and functional. When you tap on a notification, it will take you directly to the app or action you want to take, instead of going through an intermediary service to start that action. This should make everything run faster, according to the Android Developers blog post.

As previously noted by tech site XDA Developers, Android 12 also gets a new button that lets you snooze unimportant notifications, and choose how long to do so. You can also turn on adaptive notifications ranking to let Android rearrange your notifications based on how you work with different apps, and reset the ranking if you don't like it.

New one-handed mode

Android 12 appears to include a few design changes that make it easier to operate Android phones with one hand and your thumb. XDA Developers noted that the updated settings UI moves the Search bar to the bottom of the display for easier one-handed access. It also uncovered a new feature called "silky home" that makes the entire interface more suitable for one-handed use.

Android 11 features, easter egg, release date and everything you need to know

Android 11 is the latest version of Google's operating system currently available for smartphones - it's 2020's iteration of the Android update, and it's ready to download on a whole host of smartphones.

While Google has now announced Android 12, that update won't be officially available on smartphones until later in 2021.

You can buy plenty of smartphones that come with Android 11 pre-installed, though the update is still rolling out to older smartphones around the world. Depending on the phone you use, you might be waiting a while yet - or may never get the update.

More and more smartphones get the Android 11 update every month, bringing new features and tools to Android phone users around the world. 

You can see which smartphones are compatible with Android 11 below, and more companies are announcing the update is coming to their phones all the time, so this list will keep getting expanded.

Below that, we've listed all the Android 11 features that are available. There are a few intriguing ones this year, like improved smart home and media controls, and built-in screen recording, but there's nothing as major as Android 10's Dark Mode.

Finally, as with most Android builds, Android 11 has a cool hidden Easter egg, and we've got a guide to how you can access and use that.

If you've got a low-end phone Android 11 might not come to you at all - that's why Google also designed Android 11 (Go edition) which is a lightweight version of the operating system that works on handsets with 2GB or less of RAM. Phones running this version of Android 11 should start coming out soon.

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The latest Android operating system
  • When did it launch? September 8, but still rolling out
  • How much does it cost? Android 11 is a free update

Android 11 release date

Google released Android 11 on September 8, 2020 - we were expecting this date thanks to leaks from the company, but Google itself didn't build up much fanfare for the new operating system.

Well, September 8 marked the release of Android 11 on Pixel phones, but if you own a handset from a company other than Google, you had to wait.

Manufacturers with custom forks of Android will now need to build their own versions of Android 11, then roll them out to their smartphones - that could be quick, for newer flagships, but if you've got an older or mid-range handset you might be waiting a while.

So while lots of new smartphones can upgrade to Android 11, and some devices even come with it pre-installed, depending on your device and country you might be waiting a while.

Android 11 compatible phones

We've listed the vast majority of globally-available smartphones that can get Android 11, although have left out a few that are only available in few regions, or haven't been announced yet. Please note, the rollout is done in a continent-by-continent or country-by-country basis, so if you have a compatible Android 11 phone but can't download the update, just be patient.

Android 11 features

Below are all the key features Google has confirmed are in Android 11:

Built-in screen recording

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 like TikToks, or for making tutorial videos to help less tech-savvy relatives make the most of their smartphone.

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.

New conversations tab

When you swipe down from the top in Android 10, you bring down your notification bar - well, in Android 11, that's split into two sections, consisting of your notifications, and your 'conversations'.

These conversations are basically just chat notifications from chat apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Twitter, so you know they're probably more worth paying attention to than the other notifications.

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.

Smart home and media controls

The new Android 11 update brings loads of changes for people who use loads of smart home devices.

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.

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.

Plus, Android Auto now works wirelessly on your car, saving you from having to fiddle with wires to get it working. And on the topic of transport, now when you turn on Airplane mode, any headphones connected via Bluetooth will stay connected, so you won't have to reconnect them.

Improved accessibility

Google has improved its Voice Access mode in Android 11, although there isn't too much information on what's changed.

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.

A cool new mode is the braille keyboard, so you can write braille messages without needing to buy separate software.

Finally, the Lookout app now lets you scan documents and food labels, so people with limited vision can still 'read' documents and see what's in their food.

Improved prediction tools

Android 11 will seemingly reduce the work you need to do on your phone, by predicting your habits and patterns.

One such example of this is smart folders, so you can let Android 11 automatically sort your apps into folders of similar apps, like games or productivity tools.

App suggestions is also tweaked to suggest apps based on your routine - for example, if you always log onto your Fitbit app first thing in the morning to examine your sleep habits, the phone will now automatically pop that app into the Home screen in the morning so it's easily accessible.

Finally, apparently the Smart Reply feature already usable in Android phones has received some tweaks. This mode suggests some automatic responses when you receive a message, letting you reply with one tap (if any of the responses are appropriate) but it's not clear what's new here.

Security and privacy

Android 11 also 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, so an app won't track your location if you forget you have it downloaded, for example.

Other useful features

There are a few new Android 11 features which don't fit into the above categories.

One of these is better 5G detection, so if you're using a 5G phone Android 11 apps will recognize this more easily, and run faster as a result.

On the topic of improved innovative software, Android 11 will now detect hinge angles on foldable phones, so apps can better run when your foldable phone isn't flat.

Picture-in-picture mode is a useful way of watching videos while you do other things, and now it's easier to change the size of the window so you can better fit whatever else you're doing.

There's a new 'Nearby Share' mode which lets you easily send information and data to nearby devices like your tablet, Chromebook or computer using Chrome, so you can easily send a document from your phone to your PC, for example.

Finally, you can now see older notifications in settings, in case you accidentally swiped one away or ignored it for too long.

Android 11 Easter egg

See more

The last part of our Android 11 guide will explore the Easter egg - new versions of Android always have one of these, and this one was discovered by users almost as soon as the beta rolled out.

This Easter egg is very similar to the one in Android 7, in that it gives you a pet cat to look after. If that sounds weird, it is, but it's pretty fun too. If you want to find out more for yourself, follow our guide below on how to enable the Android 11 Easter Egg.

Firstly, head into the Settings app, then click About Phone, then Android Version, then repeatedly click where it says 'Android Version: 11'. If you do this right, the Android 11 logo should pop up, which is a green dial.

Turn this dial clockwise from its default position to 11. This won't work straight away, you need to turn it around a good few times - if you can't go beyond 10, turn the dial back to 1, and then turn it back to 11 again.

Some users report this working after three tries, but if it still doesn't work then keep trying. When it works, a tiny cat will pop up on the bottom of the screen.

Now you can head over to the smart home control menu detailed above - if you skipped over that section, you can find the menu by long-pressing the power button on the side of your phone.

Here you can find options to interact with the cat, but if you've already mapped controls to this menu, the options won't be visible - instead, try to add new controls, then click 'See Other Apps' to find the cat tools.

You can re-name your cat, and over time more cats might turn up too.

Why has phone still not got Android 11 yet?

This could be a decision by the manufacturer and the cellular network provider to limit a number of Android updates to your phone. While it varies, it's a long-standing issue that Google has had to wrestle with since the very first version of Android back in 2008.

The best avenue to check would be to go to the manufacturer's website or ask a representative at your nearest cellular network's store to see if your phone is eligible to update to Android 11.
