Wear OS is about to be updated to Android 11 with new functions

Google, in fact, has confirmed the ongoing preparations for a major update to the Wear OS platform for wearable devices based on the Android 11 operating system. Wear OS is about to get Android 11 update
This happened during the traditional AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit when Google responded to user questions. Initially, the Q&A session was dedicated to Android 11, but the developers opened the veil of secrecy for other platforms as well.
Speaking of Wear OS, Google has practically confirmed that Android 11 will be the next major update to the wearable electronics platform.
In response, Google emphasized several times that it was “very excited about wearable technology,” especially smartwatches and fitness bracelets.
Wear OS was upgraded to Android 9 Pie in November 2018. Android 10 was never considered for Wear OS. Now, Google has confirmed that the platform can go straight to Android 11.
In another answer, Google explicitly states that developers will have access to most of the Android APIs. This, with the release of Wear OS based on Android 11. Android 11 stable version will probably be available on September 8
So far, Android 11 is available to users and developers only in beta status, but there is not much time left until the final version of this OS is released. Judging by the video posted on the YouTube channel for Google developers, the stable version of Android 11 will be released on September 8.

Android 11 beta 2 is here while Google leaks stable release date to be September 8

Google has officially released the Android 11 beta 2. It’s a minor update but still worth checking out. But, the even bigger news is got to be the launch of the stable update. Yes, Google has accidentally revealed the date to be September 8th. Perhaps, we might finally get the Pixel 4a debut too.
Well, let’s not jump the gun and cover what we have right now. That is —
Android 11 Beta 2: Here’s what’s new
Since we are getting closer to the final build, the latest beta is mostly focussed on bringing stability to the OS.
What this means is that the final release will be more or less the same as the current build. Hence, the developers can work on their apps’ compatibility sans worrying about any sort of major changes in the forthcoming releases.
Other than this, much of what’s new is really cosmetic (compared to beta 1):
Screenshots are back in the notification shade
Share sheet bundles share targets by app basis
‘Conversations’ can be managed via a dedicated menu in the system settings.
‘Media Controls’ is now permanently sitting above the quick settings space. Some users don’t have the option to toggle it off, while some do. Also, the lock screen displays the entire album art just like Android 10.
Screen recording now lets you capture device audio
Recent Apps screen is much more minimal as the Share option has been removed.
GBoard gets recent clipboard suggestion.
The picture-in-picture window can be resized.

Android 11 stable version will probably be released on September 8

So far, Android 11 is available to users and developers only in beta status, but there is not much time left until the final version of this OS is released. Judging by the video posted on the YouTube channel for Google developers, the stable version of Android 11 will be released on September 8. Last year, on the first Tuesday of September 2019, Android 10 was released. So Google does not change its tradition. It should be noted that the release of the final version of Android 11 in early September is not equivalent to its appearance on smartphones. Only Google Pixel will receive the OS on the same day, and other manufacturers will release the corresponding updates in a month or two. And that is not for all models.

The night mode is useful in low light conditions, when the bright white color seriously strains the eyes. It also optimizes battery consumption for AMOLED screen users.

Chrome for Android finally goes to 64-bit

For many years, Google Chrome browser for Android remained 32-bit, despite the support for 64-bit architecture in Android. So, the developers at Google made the long-awaited breakthrough and made Chrome 64-bit. Chrome for Android finally goes to 64-bit
Test versions of Chrome 85 and Chrome Canary 86 became 64-bit. Smartphones based on Android 10 and higher will automatically receive a 64-bit version of the browser.
For the first time, support for the 64-bit architecture appeared on the Android operating system in November 2014 with the debut of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Since then, more and more 64-bit SoCs have been released and now almost all Android devices are capable of running 64-bit software.

Microsoft Defender antivirus arrives on Android

A few months ago, Microsoft promised to release a proprietary Microsoft Defender antivirus for mobile devices that are running the Android operating system. Now the company has released a free preview version of the application. Microsoft Defender antivirus arrives on Android
Google’s mobile operating system contains a huge amount of threats, including malware, phishing apps, trojans, and more. Google removes hundreds or even thousands of applications every month. But, many of these dangerous apps end up in users’ devices.

When Microsoft Defender ATP detects malware, it restricts access to critical applications such as email clients and online banking applications to prevent further damage. If there is a threat, Microsoft Defender ATP will warn you about it.

Android 11 removes the 4GB limit for video recording 8

Android 11 removes the 4GB limit for video recording

You may not even have thought about this, but Android had a default limit on the amount of recorded video. Yes, Google has always taken care of your drive. True, lovers of family holidays and filming have been suffering all this time from perhaps useful, but terribly annoying policies. If you want to shoot a bunch of videos in 4K, it won’t work. All material will either be split into parts or not fully retained. However, this will soon change with the advent of Android 11.
Android 11 removes the 4GB limit for video recording According to AndroidPolice report, in the first beta of Android 11, the restriction on the size of videos has finally been removed, but a very short list of applications still supports this feature.
Unfortunately, Google Camera is not one of the supported applications, which, for obvious reasons, is a big disappointment for fans of mobile photography and video. Another well-known application will come to the rescue – Open Camera. For those who are going to shoot huge projects in size, it is worth taking a closer look at this option.
At the moment, there may already be other applications that allow you to save large files, but Open Camera is the first application that supports the correct operation of this feature.
One way or another, before the widespread implementation of this function, we will have to wait some more time. To begin with, we are waiting for the presentation of a stable version of Android 11, and then everything will depend on thRead More…
