Android OS 11 Update
Android OS 11 offers some of the newest ways to control your privacy, customize your phone, and get things done. It’s Android, just the way you want it.
- ConversationsSee, respond to and control your conversations across multiple messaging apps. All in the same spot. Then select people you always chat with. These priority conversations show up on your lock screen.
- BubblesWith Android 11, you can pin conversations so they always appear on top of other apps and screens. Bubbles keep the conversation going—while you stay focused on whatever else you’re doing. Access the chat anytime or anywhere.
- One UI 3.0The new One UI 3.0 improves user interaction for Quick Panel, Toolbars, Notifications, Settings, and more.
- Privacy ControlsOne-time permissions – Give one-time permissions to apps that need your mic, camera or location. The next time the app needs access, it must ask for permission again.Permissions auto‑reset – If you haven’t used an app in a while, you may not want it to keep accessing your data. So Android will reset permissions for your unused apps. You can always turn permissions back on.
If you want to check for the update manually, just head into the device Settings and then go to the Software update menu.
Note: Verizon just started the Android 11 rollout, you might have to wait for the update but it should soon be available for your device.
