Vivo Y17 reportedly getting Android 11 under grayscale testing

Android 11 is the latest update for Android phones which is available to the public. But there are many users who are waiting for the Android 11 update on their phones. Vivo also failed to impress its users as many Vivo phones are still in queue to get stable Android 11. Now it looks like the Android 11 is now available for Vivo Y17 in greyscale testing.

Vivo Y17 is a budget phone released in 2019 with Android 9 out of the box. The Vivo Y17 is the same model as Vivo Y3 which is available in China. The device later got one major update as Android 10. And as per the official Android 11 eligible devices list, Vivo Y17 is one of the phones that make it to the list. But as there is no timeline for a stable Android 11 release, it is always a mystery for users to know its release date until the official release to the public.

Vivo Y17 has been asking for an update for a long time. And now it looks like Vivo is making some progress in the Vivo Y17 Android 11 department. Vivo India informed users that they are testing Android 11 for Vivo Y17 as a grayscale test. It is like a closed beta for only select users. But it gives hope that soon Vivo Y17 users will get to experience the Android 11 on their phones.

Vivo is testing the Android 11 for Vivo Y17 for almost a week or two at least according to the comments from Vivo on Twitter. So, we can expect the public beta rollout soon. We will update it once the Vivo Y17 FuntouchOS 11 Beta starts rolling to the public. Below you can check the response from Vivo India regarding the Android 11 update for Vivo Y17.

“Hi, vivo India is here to assist you. We have released the Android 11 for vivo Y17 handset under the grayscale test for some handset. If there will be no negative feedback then we will release the update frequency.”

As you know Android 11 for Vivo phones is available with FuntouchOS 11 update so if you receive this update, you can know it’s the Android 11 update. Talking about new features you can expect like numbers of visual changes, customizable AOD, Multi-turbo mode 4.0, rounded icons, and a few other changes as well. Other than that, you can use the basic features of Android 11 on the Vivo Y17.

The update is currently available for limited users, but later when the stable update rolls out, you will receive OTA. But in case if you don’t receive notification, you can manually check for update from Settings > System > Software Update. It will show the available update that you can download and install on your phone.

It will be available soon for everyone if everything goes well in the testing. If you get the update then make sure to take a full backup of your phone and also charge your phone to at least 60%.

We’ll share more details once available to us, make sure to follow us on (@YTECHB) and Google News (@YTECHB) for quick updates.
