Google has delayed the launch of the Android 11 operating system, the latest version of Android, which had been due to take place on Wednesday, 3 June.
It comes as dozens of cities in the US deal with large-scale civil unrest over the killing of a man in police custody. Google did not, however, specify whether this was the reason for the delay.
For developers, Android has a tonne of new capabilities for your apps, like enhancements for foldable devices and 5G, call-screening APIs [application program interfaces], new media and camera capabilities, machine learning, and more.
In a statement on the Android Developer website, it said:
“Now is not the time to celebrate,” and more details would be shared “soon”.
With the latest version of Android Google are keeping their focus on helping users take advantage of the latest innovations, while continuing to keep privacy and security a top priority.
