After launching the massive Android 10 and the year infested with Covid issues, Google’s not so many changes into the release of Android 11. A new persistent media player was added in the notification panel and added support for bubble floating notifications.
It also provides one-time permission approvals for location, camera, and microphone, new emojis, more work towards modularity, and simpler autofill, on a Samsung phone, of course. This all features are getting covered with a custom UI — Samsung’s one UI, and along with Android, that skin will be getting updated.
Android’s police have excellent hands-on of the beta, describing that most of the features of Android 11 are intact along with the few other light touches and things like new volume slider UI.
Rollouts may take weeks to hit your device. As usual, do not expect the update right away, even if you have Galaxy S20. It is rolling out to a small population, which will increase slowly, as Samsung waits to hear any problems. Keep waiting if you do not have the update notification yet.
