Just as Apple finally takes its iOS 14 operating system from beta to full use, Android has unveiled its 11 operating system too much fanfare. Although we are told about the impressive nature of Apple’s operating system, Android is still the market share leader on the Smartphone market with over 80 percent in 2020. Android has been on a winning run on the Smartphone market since it debuted its Android 10 OS, which is built on in 2020 to polish the best features and introduce a few new ones.
Integrated to all the most important Google apps, the release of 11 was first announced in February and comes at a time when the world is still struggling to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. For those who are looking to install Android 11 on their phone, the initial release will bring the operating system to all Google Pixel phones and a few handsets from chosen manufacturers. Interestingly, the smartphone giant, Samsung, is not included in the first wave of manufacturers offered the chance to bring 11 to the public. However, Samsung is expected to introduce the system to its phones as an update in the coming months.Read More »
Smart devices have become a key part of the life of most people in the last few years. Whether you are looking to turn on your lights or change the temperature when you come and go from your home, you will find your Android capable of handling all your smart device needs. Instead of having to use separate apps for each Smart device, a long press of the home button will allow you to access a screen containing all the Smart devices available. By allowing easy access and giving you the chance to personalize your Smart device screen, you will be able to make the choice of which options you see first when checking in on your home.
Another impressive feature that is currently a Google Pixel exclusive is the Live View option that is available to give you a glimpse at the locations your friends and family are located in. Live View is an impressive feature that gives you a range of options to simply point at the locations of a contact to see where they are at any time. Another feature that is only available to Pixel owners at the moment is the motion sensor option that gives a new way of operating a phone. The main example given by most tech experts is of the use of motions sense to operate music with certain hand gestures used to pause and skip tracks.
Pixel devices may be the first to have access to the latest incarnation of the Android operating system, but the roll-out of 11 is moving forward in the coming months. The impressive nature of Android 11 is the latest development in the battle between Apple and its main rival with the improvements made to the latest Android system seen as a game changer in improving the standing of the system. As usual, the fragmented nature of the Android market could be a drawback for consumers who are anticipating when Samsung devices will be able to update to the new operating system and join the Smartphone users already enjoying the upgrade to the latest operating system.
