Last month, Google released a preview version of Android 11 for a few developers, so they see all the new features. More often, these features are leaked and we can get a good picture of how the new version will look like.
We expect to see an official reveal of the operating system in May, at Google IO 2020. The event was canceled by Google due to coronavirus concerns, but it will most likely take place online. Android 11 will probably reach people’s phones towards the end of 2020.
One new feature, reported by Android Police, will allow users to bring back the last closed app from the recent apps menu. So if you closed an app by accident, you can swipe down from the top of the screen to bring it back.
This comes in handy if you closed the wrong app on your Android phone while viewing the recent apps, or you started an email draft but swiped it away by mistake. It seems that Android 11 keeps the last closed app in the system memory until users leave the Recent menu or close a second app.
Other rumors regarding wireless charging have the operating system show you an error message when your phone is poorly aligned.
Another update is about some buttons are having their sizes tweaked, so you don’t accidentally miss them. Also, the ‘Volume’ menu is getting changed to ‘Sound’ for some reason.
