Google has officially released the Android 11 stable version for compatible Pixel phones starting Pixel 2 to Pixel 4 XL.

Google Pixel phones are the first ones to get the stable latest Android 11 version and this year is no different.

In addition, select phones from a few more brands like Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus and Realme are getting the public beta update starting today. These devices should get the stable version earlier than others in the list of compatible devices.

Pixel phones are always at an advantage when it comes to Android update. Unlike phones from other brands, compatible Pixel phone users get some additional features like app suggestions on the home screen based on daily routines, new overview actions that let take a screenshot of an app and select text and images, among others.

The rollout of the latest version software update will happen in a phased manner. This means if you have one of the compatible devices that haven’t received the update yet it should take some more time.

Meanwhile, Google has confirmed that it is in talks with other brands and expects more partners launching and upgrading devices over the coming months.

Android 11 features

With Android 11, Google focuses on improving the user experience by refining the existing features rather than bringing new ones.

The new version focuses on making multi-tasking easy by moving all messaging apps to a dedicated space in the notifications section and also introducing bubbles notification.

With Android 11, Google brings a built-in screen recording feature, the ability to access all smart devices in one place, Android Auto support, and auto reset permissions of apps not in use.
