Get the Android 11’s New Features on any Android
The good news is that you can enjoy all these features on a non-Android 11 smartphone by installing third-party apps. There are a ton of apps available on the Play Store that helps to get Android 11 features on older versions of Android.
So, in this article, we are going to share a few best apps that bring the latest Android 11 features on any Android device.
1. One-time App Permissions
Well, Android 11 introduced several new features, but out of all those, the one-time permissions was the most important one. The latest version of Android lets you grant some permissions temporarily, so the app will lose access to the granted permission once you close it.

If you are amongst those users who clears all Android notifications without even looking at it, then you would like this new feature. Android 11 has a new Notification History page that lets you look back at the dismissed notifications for up to 24 hours.
You can get the same feature on the older version of Android by installing the Notification History Log Android app. The Android app uses the ‘Notification Access’ permission to store all notifications.
3. Record Screen
The new Android 11 operating system finally introduced a screen recording feature. With Android 11, you no longer need to rely on a third-party screen recorder app to record your Android screen.
If your phone doesn’t have a native screen recorder, you need to use the ‘Screen Recorder (No Ads)’ Android app. The good thing about ‘Screen Recorder (No Ads)‘ is that it adds a screen recording button on the Quick settings panel of your Android.
4. Chat Bubbles
Well, if you use Facebook Messenger on Android, then the concept of Chat Bubbles might not be new to you. Android 11 opens all app conversations in a floating bubble that you can move around your screen.
