In February, Google released the Android Beta 1.0, which arrived on the device in October 2015. Since then, the operating system has taken a step in the opposite direction, as users have been stuck with a simple little version called KitKat instead of an upgrade.
Android 11 is still in beta, and KitKat users have experienced the same problems with the software that they were previously suffering from. Android 11 lacks much of the major improvements it made in 2014. Most of the major changes are barely noticeable, and there are still a few minor bugs in some apps. With all of that, it’s probably best for any Android developer to update their apps to the new Android 11 beta, since it looks more or less like the way things were.
Purchasing a new phone
If you have a newer Android phone, you should update your phone to the latest Android Oreo beta (this if it’s not already available) because it may be the best app to use.
Battery life is another major issue that Android users will be forced to address. By removing some of the settings and apps that let the phone play music or video without bothering the processor, the operating system can become so power hungry that it fails to keep the phone in constant operation. If you do not have a backup battery that you can recharge, making sure that your phone goes into “I’m out of juice” mode will help.
Most Android devices are set up to automatically install apps in the settings. If you like to delete and save your phone’s every app you installed, you may find that your current operating system is still too fine-tuned.
In late May, Google updated the Android Beta 1 to include a few features that have not made it into KitKat, such as Air Gesture, which lets you use your Android to swipe your finger up from the bottom of the screen for things like Twitter updates or video playback. At a developer event, the company also showed off a new portrait mode for Android that can let the device mirror the screen on another device when it’s closed.
