Google has kicked off the Android 11 Developer Preview back in February, with the Developer Beta 3 being released just a few days ago. While Android 11 DP1 came out sooner than expected, the Coronavirus outbreak has caused some delays and setbacks. Google, in fact, announced that there would no Google I/O this year, however that does not mean users wouldn’t be able to enjoy the Public Beta of Android 11. Google has announced that the first beta is delayed, but we do have a final date of release.

Google has confirmed that the first beta of Android 11 would be revealed at an online event that’ll stream on June 3 202, which is still a little less than a month away. In the meantime, Google will release the fourth Developer Preview for the Pixel devices. During this event, Google will open up submissions for apps designed or updated to be compatible with the new OS.

The original roadmap for the Android 11 release outlined 3 Developer Preview builds, followed by 3 betas before the release of the final version at some point in Q3 of 2020. The tech giant has updated the roadmap now, to reflect the delays. We now have 4 Developer builds followed by 3 betas, the first of which is delayed by a month, which we expect would cause a cascading effect on the release of subsequent releases. However, the final Android 11 build is still expected to be released in Q3 2020.

Android 11 is expected to bring a number of new features that users have been asking for a long time. Amongst the many are features like native screen recording, auto revoke of app permissions, increased touch sensitivity and more. What is interesting is that with the Android 11 Developer Preview 3, Google had brought the ability to undo dismissed notifications, however, with DP4, that feature is now reportedly gone. This makes us believe that Google is still fine-tuning the feature set and that not all features we’ve seen so far might make it to the final build of Android 11, at least at release.
