Google has suddenly pushed the Android 11 developer preview system to Android developers. This version is available for Google Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4.

It has been about a month and a half since Google first pushed the Android 11 developer preview system. The update frequency of this preview system is still quite high, about once every two weeks.

The released version is Android 11 Developer Preview 2.1. The update log does not mention that this version has new features, all of which are bug fixes.
