ColorOS 8 Features
1. NEW SCREENSHOT POP-UP
Google has also tweaked the pop-up that appears when you capture a screenshot and it is now much smaller and similar to what is seen on iOS devices. Instead of a large pop-up at the top of the screen, the Android 11 shows a smaller version of the screenshot that you took at the bottom-left of the screen. It is accompanied by options to dismiss the notification, share the screenshot, and to edit it.
2. NOTIFICATION HISTORY SHORTCUT
Have you ever swiped away a notification and then found yourself trying to remember what it was? Well thanks to the neat new shortcut in your notification shade, you can just swipe down and get right into your entire notification history with just a few button presses.
3. DOUBLE-CLICK ON THE BACK
The new gesture feature does not require any special hardware to work, using sensor data from the device’s accelerometer and gyroscope to determine if the user double-clicked on the back of the device. These double-tap gestures have a “door” to prevent them from starting in certain situations.
4. IMPROVED APP PERMISSIONS
Google has been consistently trying to fix the app permissions in the last few versions of Android and that work is continuing with Android 11 as well. The company has added a new option in the Android 11 that will revoke an app’s permission if the app is not used for a few months. This should help unsuspecting users from getting their data drained by a malicious app.
5. SECOND LEVEL LOCK SCREEN
Most children today have smartphones. Google has many apps in its app store for children. In the future, this will not only be related to the selection and use time of the application but also to the lock screen of the smartphone.
The current version of the Google Play services code indicates a second lock screen for Android 11. We are talking about the “second lock screen”, which is only available under Android R (Android 11) and mentions “kids” in multiple places.
6. PIN APPS TO YOUR SHARE MENU
Here’s another great little feature that you probably wouldn’t even notice if not pointed out. In the Android 11, you can now pin up to four applications to the default share menu. This makes it far easier to send to contacts or apps when you use them frequently.
7. ETHERNET TETHERING
Android 11 also adds a new option to the hotspot and tethering menu in the form of Ethernet tethering. This will essentially allow people to connect a USB-to-Ethernet adapter to their Android phones and then connect the LAN cable to that adapter and their PC to use the Internet from their phone. This is a niche feature but will certainly be helpful when you are trying to use the Internet on a desktop that doesn’t have Wi-Fi support.
8. ABILITY TO DISMISS PERSISTENT NOTIFICATIONS
Google has added the ability to dismiss persistent notifications. While the Android users can dismiss most notifications in Android 10, the persistent notifications that sometimes show apps running in the background can’t be dismissed. Google is allowing users to remove those as well in DP3, the dismissed persistent notifications will move to History panel that debuted with DP2 and will just become a part of the list. Users will be able to tap on that list to see the dismissed persistent notifications.

9. TAG NOTIFICATIONS AS ‘IMPORTANT’
Android 11 has stolen a feature from Gmail that allows you to mark notifications as ‘important.’ To do so you can just long-press on a message in the Conversations section within the notification shade and this will give you a new UI for you to tag or tweak.
10. HIDE ‘SILENT’ NOTIFICATIONS IN THE STATUS BAR
Thanks to the Android 11 you’ll now be able to get further control over “silent” notifications, as the new option within the Settings menu allows you to “Hide silent notifications from the status bar.” When enabled, this removes the icons from your status bar, tidying up the entire experience — making them truly silent.
11. NEW NOTIFICATION SHADE UI
It wouldn’t be another Android 11 without having some UI tweaks and the notification share is not safe this time. The new-look isn’t particularly endearing at first, with wider spaces between each notification section and plenty of clear sections.
12. NEW MOTION SENSE GESTURES
Motion Sense is often chastised for being a gimmick but Google has added a great new gesture that means you can pause and play music by “air-tapping” above the display. This feature is, obviously, not available on older models without having the Soli tech packed inside.
