Android 11 Beta Features
Here is the list of features:
The new android 11 has organized the notification column by keep the priority to people and has divided into Conversations, Alerting notifications, and silent notifications. Conversations will have all the important messages and chats.
Alert notification will have the other like emails and gamming notifications. The silent notifications will be like fast charging. Not only this but the media play icon which used to appear on the top of notifications has moved to the head of notification settings.
The new feature is that the android 11 says yes to the chat bubbles and is no more hidden somewhere in the developer options. Now you can have chat Bubbles with a smooth workflow. This update is kept for the consumer-focused rather than the developer-focused.
Native screen recording

This feature will have an improved version in the coming android, the sliders will allow the users to control the sensitivity of the gestures. The two sliders will take care of the right and left movement of the screen.
Improved Dark mode
This version will depend on the timing of the day and will have different scheduling options for the day, night, and evening. The time of use will define the dependency of dark more and normal mode.
