2 min read

On February 19, Google released the Android 11 Developer Preview and said that the Beta version will be launched in May, and the final release version will be available in Q3 of 2020. It has now been two weeks since the launch of the Android 11 Developer Preview, and Google has released the Android 11 DP Ver1.1 version, which fixes some errors in the previous version.

Android 10

Changelog

  • Privacy: Apps targeting Android 11 no longer receive an erroneous security exception if they try to request a foreground location permission, such as ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION or ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, and any other permission at the same time.
  • Android Studio: NDK apps targeting Android 11 are no longer blocked from building because of an issue with the Android Gradle Plugin. This fix is included in both Android Studio 4.0 Beta 2 (or higher) and Android Studio 4.1 Canary 1 (or higher).
  • Non-SDK interface restrictions: Greylist restrictions have been temporarily relaxed on a small number of methods used by OkHTTP and related SDKs that are in widespread use. This should provide app developers with more time to test and update their libraries before these restrictions are reinstated later in the Developer Preview.
  • Apps: Fixed an issue where a fatal exception was being thrown by com.android.phone.
  • GSI
    • Fixed an issue where using the gsi_gms_arm64-userdebug build failed to boot on Pixel 3 devices.
    • Fixed an issue where the Setup Wizard would crash when running on Pixel 4 XL devices.

Android 11 Developer Preview builds are available for Google Pixel 4 / 4XL, Pixel 3a / 3a XL, Pixel 3 / 3 XL, and Pixel 2 / 2 XL only.
