Google postpones Android 11 Beta unveiling

Last updated:

Google has postponed next week’s planned unveiling of the beta version of its latest Android 11 mobile operating system in light of protests and unrest in the United States.

The latest public beta for Android 11 was initially to make its debut at the Google I/O conference on May 12 to May 14, but the annual event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The unveiling was then moved to a livestream on June 3 titled Android 11: The Beta Launch Show, which Google said would include a Q&A portion for anyone to ask questions.

Android mobile phone owners and developers have been looking forward to the new features that will arrive with the major update, but the wait to find out all about Android 11 will be extended indefinitely as the livestream has been postponed, according to the official Android Developers account on Twitter.

The reason for the postponement was not specifically mentioned, but it is clear that Google is giving way to the social unrest that has enveloped the United States in response to the death of George Floyd, who was killed in an encounter with the Minneapolis police after he was pinned down by officer Derek Chauvin, who knelt on the back of his neck.

It is unclear when Google will finally launch the public beta of Android 11.
