Android 11 Stable Release Expected To Roll Out On September 8th

Android 11 has been in the works for a long time now, as it’s been months since we saw the first developer previews get launched, with the 4th one being the last till we moved on to the Beta programme for the latest upcoming Android OS version. The betas started from early June, as Google made sure they built the foundation properly for developers to organise and test their apps on the new APIs and servers. Just before the release of the second beta, the company worked on listening to the feedback of users and improving the performance of the OS, along with fixing any bugs reported in the software. With Beta 2, the final APIs were set in place, and basically the last step for developers to make their apps compatible with the upcoming Android 11. Finally, the Beta 3 was or is, more or less the same OS that we’ll be seeing when the official Android 11 update comes out.
