The update brings plenty of new features to your phone, and we’ll show you how to install it. 506"}’ section="annotation">Android 11 is ready for public release.
As is always the case with Google, the update is slowly rolling out, so it might take a few days before it shows up on your phone — just keep checking.
Android 11 will arrive just like a normal update on your Android phone.
If you’ve been testing Android 11 from a different manufacturer — in this example I’m using OnePlus — I suggest checking its Android 11 beta website for instructions on how to handle the transition.

As is usually the case with major Android updates, when you’ll receive the update depends on who makes your device.
I’ve been testing Android 11 for a while now, and have found some features that will change the way you use your phone.
Once your phone finds the update, just follow the prompts to install it like you would any other update.
The update brings a new screen to control your connected devices, redesigned media controls, improved notifications and a new messaging feature called Bubbles, which you’ll either love or hate.
