Google has quickly followed up last month's Android 11 Developer Preview with an update for its beta software.
Android 11 Developer Preview 1.1 was released today. This isn't a full-on update for the Android 11 beta — the next one of those should come later this month — but instead it's a minor update that includes some bug fixes and small changes.
Here's what Google says is included in Android 11 Developer Preview 1.1:
Android Studio and tools
Non-SDK interface restrictions
The Android 11 Developer Preview is available to Google phones from the Pixel 2 and later. As you might expect from a major new version of Android, there are lots of new features packed into Android 11, like better support for 5G and curved edge displays.
Google is also improving chats in Android 11 by including a dedicated conversations section in your notifications shade, making it easier to jump back into your chats. Bubbles support will let you keep your conversations going while you're in other apps, and developers can now enable their apps to paste things like images directly into a reply in the notification shade.
Android 11 is getting privacy boosts, too. For example, Google is adding a one-time permission option that'll let you give an app access to your location or camera just one time rather than letting it use it whenever it wants.
Google has planned six Android 11 beta releases, with the final public launch scheduled for late Q3 2019.
