Google is absolutely successful. According to what the specialized website of Pasión Movil mentions, last year was the company's best year in terms of mobile phone sales, especially in its Pixel segment. Well, all those who have one of these devices will be able to test, exclusively, the new features of Android 11.

According to what the Clarín media comments, the Android 11 beta has already been launched, where several changes will be incorporated. At the moment, as it is a version that is subject to change, it can only be tested by the following search engine signature devices: Pixel 2, 2 XL, Pixel 3, 3 XL, Pixel 3A, 3A XL, Pixel 4 and 4 XL. 

The news of the beta of Android 11

First of all, what we can say is that not all of them are “exclusive” novelties of this operating system. On the contrary, the Hipertextual website clarifies that several of the additions are inherited from iOS, that is, from the operating system designed for devices from the Apple firm.

Despite this, several novelties will please more than one user and simplify the daily tasks we do with smartphones. This will be especially appreciated in a quarantine context, where communicating via mobile is one of the few ways of communicating with people who are outside the home.

Well, one of the first improvements is related to communication, thanks to the system of conversation "bubbles". This implies being able to have conversations in applications while using other services, something that already existed in iOS and even Facebook Messenger, but had not yet been applied natively. According to La República, this function could be activated, but thanks to external applications. It will now be available globally.

Another addition is through the integration of devices that are intelligently connected to the home. Thanks to the use of a power button, you will be able to see all the controls in a single section, so that you link your smartphone with the lights in your bedroom and even use it to open the door.

In addition, Google promised to improve the security of all users. Previously, when we accepted the permissions of an application, we gave it the possibility of having them "forever". However, now we can do it once, so that when they seek to have them another time, we can allow access or deny it.

In case we want to try all these novelties that will be incorporated later in an official version, we can do it in a simple way. According to the specialized page of Xataka , we must register through the official beta program on the Google website.

Once this is done, we must access with a compatible Pixel phone and associate the Google account. After that, we will have to wait until we receive a notification on the phone to update the system, which can take up to 24 hours. If it does not appear, it is a matter of entering the system settings and choosing the option to update the software, where we can try all these new features, which promise to compete with Apple.
