So, it’s the talk of the industry; Android 11 is the latest upcoming OS from Google. Android 10 has already brought significant changes in the OS, and Android 11 further brings new changes on the platform that was left after Android 10. Android 10 was a testament to the growth that Google has taken, and Android 11 is going to carry forward the same principles now.
With every new update, there is a lot of anticipation and excitement among the users and developers. The app owners also look forward to the launch of the latest version and what changes are there in the new version of Android.
Before we begin with the impact of Android 11 on mobile apps, let us first see what the features introduced in Android 11 are-
There are five major features introduced in this version,
Let us begin!

- Screen recorder build-in
This feature was long overdue as well as highly expected from the new version of Android. The IOS already has a screen recorder, and it was high time that Android got this functionality as well. Android 11 will come up with a feature-filled screen recorder with a UI.

Let’s see how will Android 11 impact your existing mobile app and what changes it will bring. Let us begin!

- Ability to restrict app permissions
Android 11 will change how the dialogue box appears in the apps. If a user disallows permission two times, Android 11 will consider it as “do not ask again”. The app providers will then have to explain why an app needs permissions and what it does with the data.

Android has lengthy app installations time since forever. Android 11 allows the users to launch the app and continue installing the app in the background.
