Google Android 11 Beta 3 released

Naijatechnews August 7 news foreign media 9to5 Google reported that Google today released the Android 11 Beta 3 system update. This is the “release candidate version” and is very close to the official version that Pixel users will receive in the next few weeks.

Google recommends that developers “publish compatible updates for applications, SDKs and libraries.” With Android 11, Google has finalized the “surface and behavior for all applications”, providing an additional month of development and preparation time.

Android 11 allows the exposure notification application to run without enabling the device location setting. This is to address the user’s perception that a “location” is needed.

“This is an exception to our exposure notification system only, because it is designed so that applications that use it cannot infer the device location through Bluetooth scanning. To protect user privacy, all other applications will still be prohibited from performing Bluetooth scanning unless the device location The setting is turned on, and the user has granted its location permission.”

The following issues have been resolved in Android 11 Beta 3:

General question

  • Visibility of the package. When you declare an intent filter for a browser application, your application will gain visibility of the browser application on the device. In previous versions, this intent filter made the application visible to a wider set of applications. (issue#158914189)
