Microsoft, for example, which still intends to ship its Surface Duo Android phone this year, would likely be interested in Android 11 functionality aimed at detecting the angle of the hinge in foldables - the Duo having, er, a hinge and all.
The release itself includes numerous updates such as one-time permissions for the likes of location or camera, and better waterfall (wraparound) screen support. However, according to a teaser published on Android developer's YouTube channel, the Android 11 Beta 1 release has been rescheduled for June 3.
You can find more details in the Android 11 preview release notes.
This launched in February, but the developer beta is not as wide a rollout as the upcoming public beta. Google is now going online only to reveal those important features of Android 11 and announce the first beta release via the live stream on June 3.
This helps protect you against any potential hiccups that could emerge along the way.
"When we started planning Android 11, we didn't expect the kinds of changes that would find their way to all of us, across almost every region in the world", Google vice president Dave Burke explains.
Like all previous Android 11 builds, DP4 is only available on the Google Pixel 2/2XL, Pixel 3/3XL, and Pixel 4/4XL.
This UI feature gives you an easy to access place for multiple conversations, that can all be accessed via a floating bubble.
Google's own messaging app has support, but including other apps from third-party devs would be an absolute game-changer for the feature.
And that's not the only improvement that Android 11 will bring to its messaging features.
As per the new Android 11 release schedule, Android Beta 1 will launch on June 3, Beta 2 will come in July, and Beta 3 in August.
It's a pretty logical decision, and echoes the strategy Google has used on other products such as Android Messages (which is now just Messages), Android Pay (which became Google Pay), and the Android Market (which turned into the Google Play Store).
The stream will kick off at 11am eastern time, which is 8am pacific and 4pm BST.
