Its season of new Android Version launch and earlier today, Android Developers Youtube channel published a teaser announcing the Android 11 Beta release date. According to the video it is scheduled to roll out from June 1.
Android 11 release was earlier scheduled for Google I/O. The event was supposed to take place from May 12th to 14th. But it got cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead, Google is planning to host a virtual conference, #Android 11: the Beta Launch Show. This show will start at 8 AM PST (11 AM EST) on June 1 where the company will virtually cover Google I/O.
Based on the previous release timeline, there were supposed to be three Android 11 Developer Previews and three Beta Builds. Now Google has decided to release the fourth Preview and move the Beta release. As of now Beta 1 will roll out in June, Beta 2 in July and Beta 3 in August. Following these three, we can expect the stable version of Android 11. This version of the software will be released before October, which is the month when Google reveals the new Pixel smartphones.
The fourth Developer Preview brings a few bug fixes. DP4 does not bring other significant changes and sticks to what DP3 offered. According to Google, DP4 is an “incremental update for stability and performance”.
If you own a Pixel device and is already running Android 11 Preview Build, the new versions will come via OTA soon, or if you are experimental = you can flash the latest image manually.
