Google launched last week, the second preview version for developers of the operating system (Android 11) Android 11 - and that about a month after the launch of the first version - which revealed new features in the system.

The two preview versions so far indicate that Android 11 will feature many powerful new features, which include: stronger privacy and security features, improved 5G network experiences, foldable phones, better compatibility with new screens, and a mechanism to deal with different screen refresh rates on System level, especially after most new phones have come to support high refresh rates, such as: 90 Hz, 120 Hz.

One of the major improvements in the Android 11 system also addresses the annoying Robocalls problem, as Google has added improvements to the Call Screening Service to help users better manage these calls.

The second developer preview version of the system comes with a new (API) that allows call screening applications to do more to prevent unwanted calls.

In addition to checking the status (STIR / SHAKEN) of incoming calls - a technology implemented by telecommunications companies, and mobile phone companies that reduce and block these calls, applications can check calls and report the reason for rejecting a call, and if the user grants permission, the application can know that this call is Coming from someone in their contacts or external number.

Applications can also customize the post-call screen provided by the system to allow users to perform certain actions: such as marking a call as spam, or adding it to contacts.

Robocalls (automatic calls) job is to deliver a previously recorded message to your phone that often urges you to do something, sometimes it is a letter from a political candidate, or a call from your bank announcing a new service, but the most troubling thing It is fraudulent calls that expose users to many risks.

On iOS 13, Apple also added a feature called Silence Unknown Callers, which adds an option to direct calls from unknown numbers directly to voicemail.

The second preview version of the Android 11 system came with upgrades that allow developers to better adapt their applications to the different joint patterns of foldable phones, as it comes with an application programming interface that allows these phones to tell applications at a special folding angle for the device, to help create more adaptive experiences for these new devices .

Android is the most dominant mobile operating system in the world, with nearly 90% of the world's smartphones running. But the biggest challenge that Google faces with the new versions of the Android system is its slow access to users, as phone manufacturers are working to slow down the process of updates.

Google has not yet published the numbers of users for the latest Android system version (Android 10) Android 10. But the last time that it announced quotas for the use of Android versions in May 2019, the numbers showed that only 10.4% of Android phones are running the Android 9 version, in When 64.4% work in the previous three versions of the system.

Conversely, 70% of Apple devices work with the latest version of iOS 13, and only 23% work with the previous version, iOS 12.
