The release of Android 11 is getting closer and closer as we follow the system’s beta-stage schedule. The new version of robozinho arrives full of news, bringing a more robust notification system, which includes a system of “bubbles” similar to that used by Facebook Messenger, a new storage system with hidden recycle bin for file recovery and more.
Google is now starting to turn its attention to Android TV, today releasing the system’s first Developer Preview running Android 11. The changes around here are also many, but different from those seen on smartphones, being for the most part, at least at the moment, related to the system, not covering the interface and graphics.
Analyzing the preview released, the XDA Developers website found that the search giant is focusing its efforts to improve not only performance, accessibility, privacy and connectivity, but also to provide a better experience for those who play on an Android TV.
One of the biggest highlights is the decoding of low-latency videos, benefiting streaming services as a whole, but especially those that work in real time, such as Google Stadia. In addition, a low-latency mode for HDMI connections has also been added, allowing apps to enable tv game mode that features the feature.
Another great novelty is the support for a number of new joysticks, with the arrival of 84 new mappings for controls of brands such as Xbox, Razer, Mad Catz and more. The Android 11 Developer Preview for Android TV is now available to developers, running exclusively on ADT-3, software development device for the system.
It’s worth remembering that the Mountain View giant also announced a redesigned version of Google Photos, bringing a more minimalist and fast-paced experience. The service will delete the side menu, keeping your navigation in just three tabs. The logo has also been redesigned, abandons the wealth of detail to become a set of semicircles.
