Android 11 Will Be Unveiled On May 12; Know What Resources To Expect

Android 11

The new version is traditionally presented at Google I / O; know the resources that have already been ventilated

Google announced on Friday (24) the 2020 edition of the date of the Google I / O, its annual developer conference. The event is scheduled for the 12th and 14th of May and, as is already traditional, the highlight of the presentation will be Android 11, which this time should have no mystery about the name since the company abandoned the nomenclature inspired by desserts to adopt the numerals.

The company usually presents the main novelties of the operating system, but some things are already expected from the new Android. Rumors about version 11 have been circulating since last year, and some functions scheduled for Android 10 have been delayed and should show up in the new edition.

Yes, we will have many other novelties besides those mentioned below, which are just the ones that have been aired over the last few times. The following resources are only those that are most likely; know them:

“Scoped Storage”

The feature was expected to be implemented in Android 10. Still, the proposal caused such a reaction from app developers that Google decided to postpone it to Android 11 and give it a long time to adapt.

The function is an important privacy tool that determines that each application would have a dedicated, closed area in the system’s storage. Its objective is to combat the abuse of Android permissions, making it possible for apps to read only the part that belongs to everything that is stored on disk. In practice, it means that a malicious app could not sneak data from other apps; for secure apps, that would mean that you no longer need to ask for permission to perform simple tasks, such as recording an audio file, photo, or video on the device.

The problem is that when Google announced the function, the company received a barrage of criticism from developers who pointed out that its applications would stop working overnight if the feature were implemented on Android 10. Thus, the company had given an adaptation time and decided to force the feature only with Android 11.

What’s new in airplane mode and Bluetooth

It is not a revolutionary function, but it is a welcome novelty for those who travel by plane. The XDA Developers team was able to find in the source code of the operating system a change in how Android’s airplane mode affects Bluetooth.

As of Android 11, when activating airplane mode, the system will not turn off Bluetooth, which is a minor recurring annoyance when traveling. More and more users use Bluetooth headsets, which currently need to be disconnected from the phone whenever the airplane mode is turned on, only to be reconnected again when activating Bluetooth manually.

New capture tool

A handy resource for those who need to “print” an entire website and not just the part that is displayed on the screen. Extended capture, which allows you to record everything, is in development and can show up on Android 11.

The function already exists on some phones, but the introduction on Android 11 would mean that all smartphones with the operating system could count on this feature, regardless of who is manufacturing it.

In May 2019, at a time when Android 10 was still being talked about, David Burke, Google’s vice president responsible for Android, was asked about the scrollable screenshots and said they were in development and could reach Android 11. You have to wait and see if this is confirmed, or if we need to wait until Android 12.

Digital documents

Brazil already has some virtual documents that reside on your smartphone and can replace the paper document, as is the case with CNH and voter registration. Android 11 may have a feature that would allow the security of these documents to be integrated into the hardware of the phone.

The project was revealed with the announcement of a partnership between Google and Qualcomm during the presentation of the Snapdragon 865, which should be the processor for most of the top-of-the-line Android devices in 2020. The integration of virtual documents into the processor will be limited to the Snapdragon 865 initially, with the possibility that other future chipsets may also offer the same feature.

Of course, this function also depends on the interest of governments in adapting their documents for the Android platform.

Google Assistant Can Now Tie Your Shoelaces If Your Shoes Are Nike Adapt

Google today announced some of the changes brought to the Google Assistant. This change provides support for users to be able to control applications on their smartphones using voice commands.

So what are the benefits of the update to the Google Assistant? Recently the 9to5Google site uploaded a video showing one of the uses for the Google Assistant which can control Android applications.

In the 20-second video uploaded to YouTube, it appears that a man is wearing Nike Adapt shoes. Then the man opened Google Assistant and ordered the Nike Adapt application to tie the two shoes he was wearing until 100%.

As a result, Google Assistant immediately opened the Nike Adapt application and carried out the command as mentioned by the man, namely tying his two shoes up to 100%. Of course, this makes the man not need to use his hands to press a button to tie his shoes.

Not only can you tie the shoe, it is known that users can also check the battery of the Nike Adapt shoe and instruct the Google Assistant to change the color of the shoe is just a voice command.

Of course, this is still one use for updating the Google Assistant. Users can still find ways to take advantage of the Google Assistant to instruct applications to do things that can make it easier for users.
