The new UI comes with Power Off, Restart, and Emergency buttons in a block design. There are also some quick access options in the Power menu like Google Pay, Smart home controls.

It will be copied to the clipboard, and you can paste anywhere on your phone.

New Media Layout in Quick Settings – Android 11 Beta 1 has a new interface in the Quick Settings to control Music, which is more reliable and better in terms of controls. We can easily select the Audio output device Pixel Buds, Speaker, or other sources. We can easily swipe to change tracks directly in the quick settings.

Notifications Bubble – Google has done many changes in the Notification, and quick settings panel and Bubble feature is one of them. It is like the Facebook Messenger app, where any message comes in a bubble. It makes multitasking easy like we can access messages while playing games.

Customizations – The Android 11 Beta 1 comes with the option to choose custom timings for Dark Mode. It also allows us to customize the shape of icons like Circle, Square, and various shapes.

Along with these features, you will also get some more features on Android 11. Google has again shown their interest in improving privacy, and so they have changed App permission options while opening the App.
