Although its launch is getting closer and closer, the Android 11 still undergoes some changes and experimentation in its beta testing phase. The most recent is related to the homescreen of devices equipped with the system, and rescues an old feature that is very used by owners of Android devices.
With the arrival of beta 2, Android 11 again allowed users to return to the main home screen from secondary screens through the gesture of returning home, to the relief of many.
The feature had been withdrawn with the adoption of the Android 10 gesture navigation system, only possible if the old buttons were used. It is worth remembering, however, that access to the app drawer on the recent screen remains out, with its return being unlikely given the proximity of the launch of the final version of Android 11.
As previously discovered, this was not the only novelty made available with the latest test version. Google has improved the screen recorder, finally allowing the audio source to be selected, with internal capture, microphones or even both being among the options. In addition, the function of automatic connection to Wi-Fi networks gained the possibility of being disabled.
Another major change is related to the new smart device controls on the Android power screen. With an update to the Google Home app, new devices can now be added to the control panel, in addition to having a direct link to the app via a three-point menu.
