Here are all the news from Google introduced with Android 11 that we will see with Xiaomi
Notifications and messaging
One of the main novelties of Android 11 on Xiaomi concerns the notifications, with a new organization of the way they are managed by the OS. In the canonical drop-down they are now divided by categories, with a chronology of those received and the possibility of deleting even the persistent ones. Messaging chats are grouped in the tab conversations, allowing you to have an easier view of the messages received. We can also decide to prioritize the chats that we consider most important, in order to always display them at the top of the list.
A big change, again for the messages, concerns the introduction of the so-called Bubbles. As was the case with Facebook Messenger, chats can take the form of floating window, being able to be shrunk and moved around the screen, favoring multitasking without having to close running apps. In this regard, if you would like to get a very first taste of the aesthetics of Android 11, you can do it with Nova Launcher.
Speaking of messages, with the keyboard of Android 11 it was the Smart Answers, a deeper prediction of the text. When we receive a message, we are provided with a selection of short sentences ready to be selected quickly with a click. The suggestions have also been expanded to the most used apps: the system provides a row of 5 icons at the bottom of the home screen, in order to quickly have the ones we use most quickly at hand. Furthermore, by merging multiple apps of the same category in the home, a folder will be created with an ad hoc name based on the genre of the apps put together.
Security and home automation
Speaking of privacy and security, in Android 11 it is possible to grant the one-time permits and not necessarily forever. In order to further safeguard users, permissions come automatically revoked after a few months of inactivity.
The news of Android 11 also concern the IoT system. While holding down the Power button a new menu opens, completely redesigned to accommodate i home automation controls. This results in a dedicated screen from which you can control lamps, locks, appliances and so on.
Multimedia and more
In the intention of grouping more elements, in Android 11 the multimedia controls in the notification curtain. Just lower it with a swipe down to manage the content being played. In addition to being able to play and pause, the convenience consists in being able to move the audio stream from the smartphone to devices connected via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with a click. Not to mention that now Android Auto goes wireless, without the need to operate via cable.
Other features found in Android 11 are the Bluetooth that cannot be deactivated with the flight mode, being able to pin your favorite apps at the top in the sharing menu or the Dark Theme that can be activated based on the time. Also worth mentioning is the introduction natively in the OS of screen recording, even if it has already been present in MIUI for some time.
