Realme on late Tuesday announced it is one of the first smartphone companies to offer Android 11 to its users. The announcement comes shortly after Google officially rolled out Android 11 to select users. Realme said the applications for the Android 11 preview for realme X50 pro are now open on the realme Community.

Google's Android 11 comes with a wide range of new features with a special focus on privacy, connected devices, and improvement to overall user experience. The latest Android iteration also has other key improvements such as network optimisation for better connectivity.

Android 11 is currently available for select Pixel, OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO and realme phones.

Top features of Android 11

Privacy

Google's Android 11 will now give users grant one-time permissions to the application. This essentially means you can let an app access your microphone, camera, location only the time you are using the app. If you open the app again, it will seek your permission again.

Android 11 also comes with an “auto-reset” permissions feature. This allows the software to remove permissions for applications that have not been used by the user in a while.

Messaging

Google's new Android update also allows users to prioritise conversation with select contacts. A new “Bubbles” lets you multitask by chatting with a person while continuing to use an existing application. This is very similar to Messenger's on Android.

Google is bringing native built-in screen recording support. Now, users will not need to rely on third-party apps on Google Play Store to record their screens. Some OEMs such as Samsung already offer a native feature to their users.

Others

Android 11 now enables users to access and manage all their smart devices in one place. The feature can be summoned by long-pressing the power button.

“Media controls have been redesigned and are more helpful than ever. You can now quickly switch the device your media is playing on, so you can take your music with you from your headphones to your speaker without missing a beat,” said Google in a post.
