Google Launches Android 11 Go that will launch apps 20% Faster
Google rolled out the first stable version of Android 11 Operating system this week for pixel devices and select Oneplus, Xiaomi, Oppo and Redmi devices, and now, they have officially launched Android 11 Go – designed for low powered budget devices.
Android Go edition was first created in 2018 to provide high-quality Smartphone experience to less powered and low budget entry-level Smartphones. Ideally, less powered Smartphones are the ones with 2GB of RAM and below. Google says, “ Android (Go edition) has brought improved speed, reliability, and security to over 100 million entry-level devices through apps and features specifically built to address local needs.”
A key feature of Android 11 Go is that it is able to work on devices with 2GB of RAM or less – which is an improvement from the previous Android 10 Go which supported devices with 1.5GB of RAM and below. However, Google told The Verge “But don’t necessarily expect to upgrade your existing 2GB phone: Android 11 Go is only going to come out with new phones with that much memory, not earlier ones.”
Another feature that will come with this stripped-down OS is the ability to launch apps 20 per cent faster than they did in Android 10 Go which will make it easier for you to switch apps.
Google is also dedicated to improving privacy, usability and security of Android 11 Go. Users will now be able to use gesture-navigation on this OS.
Here is what Sagar Kamdar said on Google blog post, “Around the world, people use different messaging apps to stay in touch, so they often find themselves toggling between them to chat with family and friends. Now Android 11 (Go edition) shows all of your conversations in a dedicated space in the notification section. This means you can see, respond to, and manage your conversations with family and friends all in one place, no matter what apps they use.
Affordability shouldn’t mean compromising privacy and security, which is why we’ve ensured that Go edition smartphones have access to the same industry-leading privacy protections as any Android device. Android 11 (Go edition) comes with new privacy enhancements that make it easier to control how and when data on your device is shared. With one-time permissions, you can grant an app access to specific sensors like your microphone, camera or location, just in that instance. And if you haven’t used an app for an extended period of time, app permissions will “auto-reset” and you will immediately receive a notification of the change. You can always choose to re-grant the app permissions the next time you open the app.”
These are the key main features we have seen with Android 11 Go Edition, other features are similar to the official Android 11 that we recently discussed. Be sure to check out the post and give us your thoughts on Android 11.
