Android 11 Beta 2 announced – Everything you need to know!


Android 11 Beta 2 announced -

After testing the beta version since February, Google has finally launched its Android 11 Beta 2 for its Pixel devices, today. There are not many new features in the beta version, but according to Google, Android 11 is at Platform Stability. You know what that means, Google has mostly finalized the SDK around this time, which means now all is left for them is bugfixes, and it’s complete. So, now let’s talk about the features of Android 11 Beta 2.

As we know, the Android 11 comes with a native screen recorder to the platform. However, in Beta 2, it is getting an upgrade. Now, you can capture device audio from your native screen recorder. This feature was added in the first developer preview for Android 11, but due to countless bugs and the inability to record internal audio, it was dismissed. However, this feature has made its comeback in the Beta 2 update and is now better than ever.

Thanks to the new upgrades, the native recorder allows you to switch the audio source to that recording. Not only that but, it also lets you record audio during a screen recording from the microphone, internal device audio, and both internal audio and microphone. Moreover, there is a new quick settings menu for the screen recorder, which looks smooth.

Apart from the screen capture feature, Google has also tweaked the share menu and made it a bit more neat, in terms of looks. Although, the company made this step after they immensely improved the speed of the share menu with Android 10 last year. To do this, the company merged multiple share intents from a similar app into one. For example, while Twitter used to show various share intents in the share menu like Tweet, Direct, and Fleet.

However, there is only one Twitter share intent in the share menu in Android 11 Beta 2. For the other intents, you will have to first tap on the Twitter button in the share menu and choose the required intent. Moreover, it is also denoted by a small drop-down arrow in the share intent of an app.

Also, if you are or you have flashed the developer beta, you will automatically receive the OTA update with today’s upgrade.
