Internet search giant Google has reportedly denied the reports that claimed that Android 11 is getting launched on September 8. As per a report by Android Authority, a company representative has said that the release date — that was mentioned at Google’s Smart Home Summit — was an “error.” Also, it is also suggested that the company has not yet finalised the launch date of its next Android update.
To recall, during Google’s Smart Home Summit event yesterday, Michele Turner, Google’s product management director of the smart home ecosystem mentioned the date. Even though Google has denied the aforementioned launch date, it does fall around the same time as September 3, which was the launch date of the Android 10 operating system last year.
To recall, Google made Android 11 public beta version available in June along with announcing the handsets that were eligible to get the update. The company has revealed all the key features that are expected to be launched with the next Android operating system update.
On its blog, Google detailed how the Android 11 version will allow users to have a smoother communication experience as it will roll out a new feature that will put together all their conversations from across various messaging apps to a common section in the notification centre. Within this single notification, users will be able to choose to see the messages from a particular app at the top by making it ‘priority.’ However, once you make an app as priority will appear on the always-on display and will even be notified during a ‘Do Not Disturb’ setup.
Besides this, users will also get a feature called ‘Bubbles.’ This feature acts as a shortcut to conversations that appear in the form of floating badges so users don’t have to switch between apps. It will look similar to how chats appear in Facebook Messenger mobile apps.
