What’s new in Android 11 Developer Preview 3?

by birtanpublished on August 21, 2020

We're expecting Google to announce the pixel for a pretty much any week now but in the meantime we have the third and likely final Developer Preview build of Android 11 before the official beta goes live sometime next month so we've been playing around with it on the pixel for

Over the weekend here's all of its new features and quirks so right off the bat one of the fun new quirks here is you can see the clock and tasks tray icons or just a little cut off by the rounded corners on the pixel for I guess they

Didn't really think about that with developer preview 3 it's a little annoying it's not that big a deal but one of the first real user facing features here is adjustable sensitivity on the back gesture on both sides of the

Screen so if we jump into the system settings here tap on gestures scroll all the way down to system navigation and hit this gear it's a lot of steps I know you can see there's now some sensitivity adjustment with both the left and the

Right edges with that little swipe from either edge to go back gesture and you can adjust the sensitivity of each side individually that's really great because maybe you only go back with your left thumb on the left edge of the screen

Well you can turn that sensitivity really high and bring the sensitivity of the right side down and you can watch as you mess with this slider the the gesture zone sort of expands it contracts accordingly another new

Feature here is the way Android handles screen shots so you still take them by pressing and holding power and volume down like that but now you've got this new screen where you can share or edit I'm gonna hit edit and you can just

Quickly crop just like you see on you know Samsung phones oneplus phones pretty much anything that's not stock Android I'm really happy about this because most of the time when I take a screen shot I just want to crop into a

Certain spot maybe this widget and just show the weather and the date something like that you know it's it's just a really nice feature to have now that's not the only area where you can take a screenshot with Android 11 so if you go

Into the recent apps section for one you can see the app preview is much much larger it takes up almost the entire screen but now there are two buttons down here one for screenshot and one for share they both do basically the same

Thing so if you tap the screenshot button it just captures that app it skips out on the clock information top it skips out on the navigation bar at the bottom you just get the app and again you can crop around as you like if

We instead hit share it just skips that cropping step and just lets you send that screenshot of the app to any app of your choosing while we're talking about the recent apps window let's just jump right back

In there there's a new undo gesture that lets you call back an app that you might have accidentally forced closed so let's just swipe this one away and you can see if you pull down on the next app that pops up it just comes right back into

The system memory you have to act pretty quickly you can't wait more than maybe 1 or 2 seconds at a time but if you swipe right down then it comes just back into the recent apps tray it's a really great feature

Now speaking of swiping things away this is a clean install of Android 11 when you install a Developer Preview you generally have to wipe all of your personal info off of the phone just what I did so it's trying to get me to sign

Into Google Phi and get that all set up even though I've got that activated on a different phone if we swipe that away that's generally a persistent notification but now you can get rid of those and they just sort of sit in this

Really subtle apps active in the background prompt if you tap on Google Phi it pops back up with that persistent notification but this way it just sort of stays out of your way I really like that for just a cleaner look and one

Final new feature in developer preview 3 is a toggle to automatically revoked permission settings on an individual per app basis so if we jump into the system settings again hit apps and we can choose any app we want let's just do

Maybe Amex for example I'm not signed in but if I work you can tap on permissions and there's this new toggle to auto revoke permissions what that's gonna do is exactly that it'll revoke any permissions you've

Granted the app after a number of months when you haven't opened it now how many months it's gonna take for that to kick in we don't really know yet but for those security minded this is definitely a nice new feature ok so

That's pretty much everything new with the latest build of Android 11 again there's not a whole lot of user facing features because it's still just a Developer Preview but this does give us some good insight
