The current Android version, Android 10 gave new wings to the operating systems last year!
With Android 10, we get dark mode (night mode), many app permission changes, and marked Google's name with a new Android logo/brand.
Android 10 is a mature operating system that is now being carried to Android 11, the latest Android version.
In a world where COVID-19 is leading to cancel every single launch, expos, etc., the Android 11 beta release is also getting continuously postponed from the last many weeks.
According to the official sources of www.android.com,
"Present times don't fit to celebrate Android 11; thus, the June 3rd event and the beta release of Android 11 release is postponed again. New Android updates will be shared soon."

In February, Google announced the first Android 11 Developer Preview. And it was released earlier than everyone expected. The early release was for the developers so that they can understand and adopt new apps, APIs, and platform behaviors.
The main reason behind the delay of the Android 11 beta release is the COVID-19 pandemic; otherwise, Google would have launched the update Android version, the first Android 11 Beta at Google I/O event that was dated from May 12th-14th.
COVID-19 has not only impacted the Android 11 release timeline but impacted many other tech giants conferences, expos, fairs, etc. Therefore, Google decided to push the release of the first Android 11 Beta.
The delay in Android 11 has caused many of the top Android app development company in USA to change their plans and return back to Android 10!
Latest Android Update: What Google Is Planning?
It was expected the first beta will be revealed on June 3rd, 2020 in an online event. Already Google is done with releasing 3 Developer Previews!
And the plan was to release Beta 1, then after Android 11 Developers Preview. However, now to fill the gaps between DP and Beta release, Google will launch DP 4.
Google titled June's online event as “#Android 11: The Beta Launch Show.” But, now in the event, you will get Developer Preview!
Furthermore, Google will also open up the Play Store for the developers to submit new apps based on the new Android version, Android 11.

It will be amazing to see how Google will launch the DP 4 (Developer Preview 4) while delaying the release of Android Beta 1.
Hence, the DP4 download will be available for the Google Pixel 4/4 XL, Pixel 3a/3a XL, Pixel 2/2 XL, and Pixel 3/3 XL. So, you can try out the upcoming Android version.
“It is now expected that the current version of Android 11 will release in June, Beta 2 in July, Beta 3 in August, and Beta 4 in October or after it!”
In the postponed event, Google was going to host webinars followed by a series of online talks to cover the rest of the topics at Google I/O 2020.
Following the post-show, a Q&A session related to Android Studio and Google Play was also going to happen after the announcement launch.
But for now, everything seems difficult due to ongoing world events due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the protests in America.
Why Google Pushed The Android 11 Beta Launch?
According to sources, Google was all set to launch the Android 11 version online but postponed it only due to ongoing protests on the death of black man George Floyd in the United States.
As a result, Google delayed the Android 11 beta launch because several US cities are under protests due to the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
The current conditions in USA are on the thin line; first, due to Coronavirus and then due to these protests. Otherwise, Google would have surely celebrated the Android 11 release worldwide!
Some of the key focus areas of Android 11 are:
- Developer Preview 4 is out
- Tons of messaging improvements
- Permissions keep getting better
- We have a built-in screen recorder
- Adapting Android to different displays
- 5G is a big focus
- You can flash it right now
- The final build is coming in Q3
- The Pixel 4 is first-in-line for Android 11
- Camera, Privacy, Security improvements, etc.
“One more thing is expected, i.e., Google can launch the most awaited Google Pixel 5a alongside Android 11.”
However, looking at the acts of violence that are taking place, it is quite unsure when Google will launch Android 11.
Looking at the current scenarios, world events, and political unrest,
"It is not the time to celebrate Android 11 Release!"
