In particular, according to what reported by Engadget and The Verge, Google has decided to postpone the event, originally set for June 3, 2020, to a date to be assigned. The Mountain View company has not communicated when the live streaming will take place, but we will probably know more over the next few weeks. Of course, the release of the Android 11 Beta is also postponed.
“We are excited to be able to tell you more about Android 11, but this is not the time to celebrate. We are postponing the June 3 event and the release of the Beta. We will be back soon with more information on Android 11“, we read in a post of theofficial Android Developers Twitter account.
Although the reference is not explicit, it is clear that Google is talking about the George Floyd case, which led many Americans to protest. It is an alarming situation, as people are taking to the streets and there are numerous scuffles. This is not the place to analyze what happened, but you probably all know a little bit about what is happening in the United States of America. Many employees of the Mountain View company are located in the Bay Area, one of the areas affected by the protests.
In conclusion, the motivations are serious: we will have to wait a little longer to find out more about Android 11. In the meantime, we remind you that we recently tried the Developer Preview 4.
