Want to know what’s new in Android 11 Beta?
This video shows off the new home screen suggestions setting on the Pixel Launcher, powerful new Power Menu with smart home controls and payment cards, new music controls within Quick Settings, and Bubbles for chatting in the old Facebook chat heads way.
We’ve covered plenty of other Android 11 changes in several write-ups, so this video really was about the new stuff that Google wants you to know about and test. As we continue to dive in over the coming days, I’m sure we’ll find more and will then share those changes with you.
