Android 11 is updated to beta 3: news and compatible phones

Google releases Android 11 Beta 3 ahead of public launch - 9to5Google

Google continues with its beta calendar for Android 11 and the third beta of the operating system is now official, a couple of weeks after version 2.5 arrived in Spain. Unlike previous betas of the operating system, in this one, we hardly find any news, although there is a change. It is also the last of the betas before its stable launch.

The Google Pixels, as usual, are the first to have access to the beta 3 of Android 11. Users with Google phones (except the original models) can now proceed with their installation. This is the most stable beta that has been released so far.

A new beta of Android 11The third beta of Android 11 focuses on helping developers put the finishing touches on their applications so that they are prepared for the new version of the operating system. This includes targeting the official API 30 SDK and building with the new tools and updates available through Android Studio. Thanks to this beta we can already have a clear idea about what we can expect from the stable version of the operating system, which will surely become official soon.

The main novelty that this beta leaves us is the update for the exposure notification system (ENS), the COVID-19 contact tracking API developed by Apple and Google. From now on, users will be able to run applications using ENS without the need to activate device location settings in Android 11.

Google claims that this exception is being made for applications that use the Exposure Notification System only, as it has been designed in such a way that tracking applications that use it cannot infer the location of the device through Bluetooth scanning. This should clear up some of the privacy concerns that users and developers had in the context of these applications. To protect user privacy, all other apps will still be prohibited from performing a Bluetooth scan unless the device location is enabled and the user has granted location permission to them.
