Android 11 Beta Chat BubbleSource: Joe Maring / Android Central

Yesterday was a big day for the Android community. Out of nowhere and with very little fanfare, Google launched the Android 11 Beta for everyone to download and try for themselves.

There's a lot to unpack with the beta, including the likes of chat bubbles, revamped conversation notifications, smart home controls in the new power button interface, and much, much more.

Taking a gander through the AC forums, it looks like a lot of our members have already downloaded and installed the software.
