  • This includes clubbing all notifications from different messaging apps under one dedicated space in the notification section. 
  • Android 11 is also getting enhanced and better security features. 
  • It will let users grant apps one-time permissions for specific sensors like the phone’s microphone, camera, or location. 
  • It will also pause permissions for apps that haven’t been used for a long time. 
  • Google will inform users of the change, and permissions will have to be re-granted when that app is opened.

Google has also added gestures on Android 11, users on the new version can use gesture-based navigation to navigate to the home screen, switch between apps, and more. 

Android 11 will be available on the latest entry-level smartphones with up to 2GB of RAM. This is an upgrade from the 1.5GB RAM criteria Google had for Android 10. Only new smartphones with 2GB RAM will run Android 11 and not older devices with the same RAM capacity, The Verge reported.
