Google Android 11
Like its predecessor, Android 11 is an iterative update to Google’s mobile OS that brings useful features like expanded power menu controls and better permissions settings. It also offers a long-awaited built-in screen recorder and controversial chat bubbles. The new Conversations section in notifications might add clutter and needs improvement, but the good news is you can disable most of Android 11’s changes if you hate them.

So, don't fret — the tons of minor improvements and touch-ups more than make up for the lack of any major new Android 11 features.Android Central90Conversation starterAndroid 11 is packed with useful features that drive Google's mobile vision forward. Conversations-focused notifications along with chat bubbles make Android 11 a great platform for messaging, there are big changes with regards to privacy and security, and Google is making it easier to roll out security updates.
