Dark Mode

The scheduled dark mode is hands down one of the best Android 11 new features. The Android 9 version got us all excited about the dark mode with its glimpses of the same and Android 10 polished the dark mode.

Now, with Android 11 you can schedule when you want the dark mode on in your Android device. You can schedule it for either sunrise or sunset or even set a custom time of your preference. We think now you will agree that this is one of the best Android features.

Hide Silent Notifications

People choose to silent notifications from a lot of applications to focus on their work or for any other reason. But those notifications still take up space in the status bar.

One of the Android 11 features is that you can make sure it doesn’t take up space. Just head over to the notifications option in settings and select the option to hide silent notifications. The silent notifications will still be present in the notification shade but you will definitely have some space in the status bar.

One Time Permission

One of the Android 11 features is increasing the focus on privacy with a one-time permission option. One-time permission means you can allow access to the microphone, location, or camera for once and as soon as you quit the app, permission will be revoked.

Select the “only this time” option and whatever permissions you have granted to the application will be available only once.
