Android 11 has officially begun making its way to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series in the US.
Verizon is now pushing Android 11 to its Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra models. All three updates have been confirmed by Verizon support pages, which show that these updates include both Android 11 and Samsung's One UI 3.0 user interface.
With the upgrade to Android 11, Galaxy S20 owners can expect new features like a dedicated Conversations section in your notifications shade for faster access to new messages plus Bubbles, which lets you keep your ongoing chats on top of all your apps. Samsung is also adopting Android 11's media controls in Quick Settings so you can quickly control your music and change where it's playing.
Android 11 brings better privacy, including letting you give apps one-time permissions for access to your camera, location, and microphone as well as auto-reset permissions for apps that you haven't used in a while.
Samsung is adding in some of its own features with One UI 3.0, too. New Dynamic Lock Screen images means you'll have more photos to see every time you unlock your phone, and the camera is getting better autofocus. One UI 3.0 will also help you quickly delete duplicate contacts, plus the Internet app can now block websites from redirecting you when you press the back button and it can now keep up to 99 tabs open at once, too.
Verizon says these Android 11 updates are rolling out to its Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra today, so if you've got one of those devices, be on the lookout. You can also check for your phone's update manually by going into Settings > System updates > Check for system updates.
