A couple of hours have handed for the reason that launch of the primary beta of Android 11 and a extra cautious evaluation of the brand new software program has made it attainable to deliver extra information to the moon than the one we instructed you about yesterday.
From the renewed multimedia controls to the information associated to the notifications, the background and the backups, there are some noteworthy information and others that we’ll most likely uncover within the coming days. We have now due to this fact determined to deliver collectively all of the “minor” information on this article which shall be up to date as information emerges. So return to studying it repeatedly.
Help for native backups
One of many principal issues of Android, which happens particularly when altering smartphones, is the target problem, at the least for the common person, of creating a backup and subsequent restoration of information. Except you unlock root permissions, it isn’t attainable to make a full backup of utility knowledge, attributable to some limitations inherent in Android.
Though the inexperienced robotic provides the likelihood, by Backup Supervisor, to save lots of as much as 25 MB of information, many purposes don’t do it for a speech of privateness and administration of delicate knowledge, preferring in lots of instances backup to the cloud. With Android 11 issues change and the system doesn’t have in mind the attribute within the Manifest file that forestalls backup.
On this means will probably be attainable to make the backup by way of ADB, an answer that’s not inside everybody’s attain however nonetheless represents a step ahead. Nevertheless, all purposes that use the cloud to save lots of their knowledge will stay excluded from the backup. Which implies that, at the least for the second, there shall be no univocal and optimum resolution.
A brand new tab for the multimedia participant
A brand new toggle is hidden among the many Developer Settings which lets you transfer the multimedia controls from the notification drop-down to a brand new widget within the Fast Toggles.

In case you have opened a number of multimedia purposes, you may change between the controls with a easy swipe to modify between the management interfaces and resume your favourite playback. Nevertheless, the information doesn’t finish right here, on condition that by urgent the “Loudspeaker” button on the high proper of the notification will probably be attainable to entry the brand new set of controls for the quantity of the linked gadgets, of which we spoke yesterday.
The show of the media participant on the unlock display has additionally been up to date, with a glance extra much like part of the system quite than a traditional notification. The writings are extra seen, as is the quilt which has a extra refined look.
The event of the interface doesn’t but appear full, on condition that there aren’t any high quality transitions between the 2 participant codecs, however it’s doubtless that issues shall be sorted out over the following few months.
Nice enhancements for Voice Entry, the perform that lets you management the display with voice instructions. It’s not obligatory to point the quantity related to a component or perform, however it’s ample to pronounce an motion, the identify of an utility or a sure perform to execute it.
Additionally on this case there are nonetheless some small enhancements to be made however there are various steps ahead in comparison with the earlier model.
On this case it’s a minor novelty, which nevertheless reveals Google’s consideration to element. By decreasing the notification curtain the background shall be barely lowered, with a zoom out. Clearly returning to the house will probably be attainable to view the quick animation exhibiting the background picture returning to regular dimension.
Ideas for the Dwelling
Instantly after the set up of Android 11, a notification might seem that implies including a shortcut to essentially the most used purposes on the backside of the display, remaining seen on every display of the Dwelling. The added icons shall be highlighted with a coloured border, to make the change instantly seen.
The recommendations clearly change in accordance with the purposes you employ, even when on the first begin it’s doubtless that they’ll solely present the not too long ago used apps. Within the Launcher Settings it’s nevertheless attainable to disable the recommendations if they aren’t appreciated.
Different new options embody, among the many emergency settings, the potential of receiving emergency notifications in Spanish, an energetic perform in nations that help this perform.

Lastly, we shut with an issue associated to notifications from Nest cameras, which don’t present the preview of the video. It’s doubtless that some adjustments within the code have precipitated the issue which most likely shall be solved with the following releases that precede the steady one.
