After an extension of Google Developer Preview for Android 11 and the delay of Android 11 Beta, Google finally started the Beta phase for the next version of Android.
The first Beta builds are now available for Pixel 2, 2 XL, 3, 3 XL, 3a, 3a XL, 4 and 4 XL. Users can go to the Source link and sign up for the Beta program. Once enrolled in a Google account associated with your Pixel phone, you will be able to access the settings and extract the update.

If you are running Android 11 Developer Preview, you can also update via OTA. Factory images are also available from Google, in case you prefer to do it the old-fashioned way. Otherwise, you can choose to use Google’s Android Flash tool.
Android 11 Beta has several new features, including the new Bubbles API, so more apps can be minimized in floating notifications, there is a new unique permission setting so you can allow or deny permissions on a case-by-case basis. Don’t forget about the Fast Share feature that will be able to send files to other Android devices via Wi-Fi, just like AirDrop.
Anyway, check out the Beta and tell us what feature you are waiting for an Android 11.
