Google launches Android 11 Go with 20% performance boost, better privacy

Of late Google has been focussing on the Go edition of software options for the devices that do not have the high-end specifications. In top of the news, it will help you launch apps 20 per cent faster so you can say goodbye to your cheap phone's sluggish ways. Google will not provide any examples of devices that can receive updates. For those unaware, the Go edition of Android was first introduced in 2018 and Google claims that it runs on over 100 million entry-level devices through apps and features specifically built to address local needs. I recommend having your phone plugged into a charger and a strong Wi-Fi connection to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. Android 11 lets you quickly select your audio output from the notifications shade.

A recent report pointed out that Pixel smartphone users in India won't be getting the Android 11 OS update along with everyone else in the world. For us, the big highlight is the inclusion of native gesture navigation, as well as increased app launch speeds.

Android Go Edition is designed for lower-powered smartphones in the entry-level category, in particular those equipped with lower amounts of RAM than mid-range and flagship smartphones.

Henderson makes move, joins Korda in ANA Inspiration lead
Both Korda and Henderson could only manage pars in the playoff hole while Lee putted a five-footer to clinch the title. Korda responded with birdies at the 11, 12 and 15 - landing her approach at the 12 within three feet.

Unfortunately, there's no word on when Android 11 Go will be appearing on current Go phones or future phones. Google added a new feature called 'Verified SMS' to the Google Messages application back in 2019, and now the company is adding a new Verified Calls feature to its Phone application.

Improved Notifications: In Android 11, there will be two different sections for notifications, one for the conversation app with long thread and the second for other apps notifications. But with optimizations to make the experience better for budget-friendly devices. With the last Android Google started to take privacy a little more seriously, allowing users to limit things like location access to only operate when you're actually using an app (as opposed to the background).
