Android just got one louder

Android 11 source code has been released to AOSP, which means you’re going to start seeing a flurry of ROM development and the communication channels of major manufacturers clogged by people wanting the newest Android OS.

Android 11

Features include turning the power button into a push-to-talk-to-your-connected-devices button, more of a Google-centric approach to security rather than relying on manufacturers to push out that two month old security update, and of course the right to wear a shirt that says “Eleventy”

There’s a new Bubbles messaging interface, much to the dismay of the Blossom and Buttercup messaging spaces. This appears like the thing that will change communication for the better forever and ever, but whatever. Screen/audio recording is now built in to Android which will be somewhat useful for those who didn’t have a device from a manufacturer that built it in.

When will it be coming to your phone? If you’ve got a phone over two years old chances are it won’t be, just because there’s not a lot of incentive for manufacturers to support their older equipment. In that case it’s probably rooting time. Otherwise, generally give it 3-6 months.
