Android 11 Starts Rolling Out to Pixel Users

Good news for Pixel users: Google is now rolling out its Android 11 stable build update. This update is arriving for Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4a series users. If you are using either of these devices, you can check if the update is already available on your device by going to Settings > System > Advanced > System update.

So what makes Android 11 better than its predecessor? Google has added in some new features on Android 11. Most of the new features promise to improve messaging and notifications experience. For one, the new update includes a separate section for notifications from messaging apps. This way, you can differentiate the notifications you receive from each messaging app you use.

There is also a new screen recorder feature, which was previously included by third-party OEMs. This feature is new for Pixel users.

Some other improvements include a new power button and media controls. When you press and hold the power button, all of your smart home devices will be seen on your phone. This also gives you access to payment options for NFC readers. As for the media controls, it now lets you quickly switch to your preferred audio output device.

Android 11 has also made Android Auto wireless, as long as the audio system of your device is compatible.

Other improvements made on Android 11 include better privacy features and permissions and new exclusive features that make for a better user experience.

Aside from the Pixel phones, the other devices that are getting the new OS update include OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, and Xiaomi. The update for these phones is only available on select devices. As for smartphone users from the other manufacturers, you will have to wait for a while.
