Google tonight announced that it will delay Android 11: The Beta Launch Show next week. The company on Twitter says “this is not the time to celebrate” in light of the company’s ongoing protests in the United States, including in the San Francisco Bay Area, and that it will be postponed later.
Instead of a physical I / O conference, Android 11: The Beta Launch Show was meant to showcase what’s new in the operating system this year. It would have started with an hour-long speech at 8 a.m. on June 3. Subsequently, senior members of the Android team were expected to organize a live question and answer session.
Earlier this week, the company released a list of Android 11 Talks that would also be released that day. They were originally planned for I / O 2020 and include “What’s New in Android”, “All Things in Android 11” and “What’s New in Android Development Tools”.
We’re happy to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate. We postpone the June 3 event and the beta version. We will be back soon with more on Android 11.

For app developers and partners, Google is telling us tonight that it is not changing the final release schedule for Android 11, which is slated for the third quarter of 2020. It will provide an updated schedule as soon as it will be available.
The first Android 11 Beta was originally planned for this month, but it was delayed because Google “decided to add some extra time” to the release schedule from February. The Android team said earlier this month that it was “collaborate remotely and prioritize the well-being of our families, friends and colleagues. “
As a result, it postponed Beta 1 and “all subsequent milestones” by about a month, and released Developer Preview 4 instead.
- Beta 1 will include the final SDK and NDK API with this version and open the Google Play post for apps targeting Android 11.
- Beta 2 moves in July. We will achieve platform stability with this version.
- Beta 3 happening in August and will include the release of candidate versions for final tests
From the beginning of May 2020
