While the phone manufacturers’ update efforts for the 10 release of Google released in September continue at full speed, the testing process for Android 11 has already begun. While it was a month since the first developer preview version was released, Android 11 Developer Preview 2 was released to developers.
Regular users are not recommended to install Android 11 DP versions that can be installed on models released now and later. Because Google publishes these versions for developers and hosts dozens of bugs .
Google says that devices with these versions installed may face battery, performance, and stability issues . He explicitly states that users who need accessibility features may experience problems in these versions, and some applications may not work as expected .
One of the interface changes we see in DP 2 is in the notification panel . You can view your previous notifications in a list by clicking the ” History ” option in the lower left corner of the notifications. There are recent notifications at the top of the page.
Android users have been asking for a built-in screen recorder on their phones for years. We saw this in Android 10 Developer Preview, but it was removed in the final version . We came across Android 11 D 2 again. When you click Screen Recording in the Quick Settings section, a pop-up window welcomes you.
5G technology, which is the main agenda of this year and next period, has started to come to more phones. With the DP 2 version, developers will be able to check whether the phone is connected to the 5G network using APIs.
In addition, in the DP 2 version for foldable phones, the hinge angle sensor API is available to developers. This will make it much easier for apps to understand if the phone is folded or opened.
Hosting a new tool that allows developers to move files from Android’s old storage model to the new comprehensive storage model, the update simplifies call filtering. In addition, developers can determine the screen refresh rates at which their applications will run.
