The Biggest Change in Android 11 Isn't a New Feature

Still, this incident tells us that the makers of Android are at least getting ready to gear up for Android 11's eventual launch. We might be really close. It says you can "Try it today" and "Get Android 11" on your Pixel device through the Android Beta program, test apps, "review what's new", and more. Although Google has yet to officially announce anything, the company in a clumsy move put the web page for the Android 11 Developer Preview live on its website before taking it down soon after.

The Mountain View-based search giant has recently dropped a hint that the very first developer preview is just around the corner, despite the fact that traditionally, Google releases the first developer preview in March.

Android Police managed to capture some screenshots before Google reverted it back to Android 10 and it seems that none of the links within the site actually linked to Android 11 material. But it's a reminder that we'll not see a sweet treat name for Android again, and 11 will be the second version to be simply numerical. While the page was up, all the links for new features still referred to Android 10, for example.

The first Android Q/Android 10 Developer Preview arrived on March 13 of past year. If that changes, we'll certainly let you know. Arriving this early would be, well, early.
