With Android 11, Google has released a new operating system that will be distributed as an update for many smartphones in the coming months. A function was discovered there that should have been integrated much earlier.
Android 11 shows notification history
How often has it happened to you while using an Android phone that you accidentally wiped away a notification and then no longer knew what it was? Finding the notification afterwards is almost impossible unless it happened to be a message that was sent to you. Just in case, Google finally introduced something in Android 11 . You can look at a notification history of the last 24 hours – SmartDroid discovered. So if you accidentally wipe something away, you can go to the settings and see what that could have been.
There you can see not only which app last displayed a notification, as you can already see on Samsung phones, for example, but also in detail which notification it was. So it doesn't matter if you accidentally delete all notifications, because you can then simply look up what exactly it was. A really useful extension of the operating system that Google introduced here. Until now, that was only possible with additional apps – and not everyone knows them.
The main new features of Android 11:
Android 11: The long wait for the upgrade
Android 11 is already fully developed, but distribution to smartphones from other manufacturers takes a few weeks or months, as always. Google's pixel phones are already supplied, OnePlus has already equipped the 8 series with Android 11. Otherwise, the market looks rather bleak with a really fast update policy. Samsung is likely to start the rollout soon. So far, only the beta for the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series is available . The final update for millions of cell phones should probably start in November or December. GIGA will inform you if that is the case.
