Google agreed to tell about the Android 11

The tradition of the presentation of the new versions of Android, followed by Google, is quite unusual. Instead of having to first submit the update to the public, and then open it to test, the search giant should be exactly the opposite. There is therefore nothing surprising in the fact that the beta test Google is starting even in the winter, and officially represents the operating system closer to the summer. However, this year the company decided to change myself, and — strangely enough — to tell about the Android 11 just a few weeks after the release of Android 10.

Google canceled the release of one of the functions of Android 10 and moved it to Android 11

Android 11 will be the theme of the conference is Android Dev Summit 2019that Google organizes every year for development under Android. This is stated on the invitation that the company sent to the participants. Even Google is not afraid to speak the name of one of the features of the upcoming updates. It seems that this generally occurred for the first time in several years, because usually the company preferred to hold the description of innovations and especially their names before the official presentation held at the conference Google I/O.

How does the Scoped Storage

In this case we are talking about a function Scoped Storage, whose title can be translated as “scope”. Essentially, this means that Google plans to limit each application installed on the device, the individual space on the disk. It does not allow them to encroach on the sections of memory allocated to another software. The result is a kind of isolation in which each program is located in the cell, beyond which can not.

It is assumed that Scoped Storage will help to eliminate instances of cross-data collection, when one application accesses the information from another. Previously, it was regulated by a system of permissions, but it didn’t work too effectively. Most of the users distributed the installed applications any privileges as a result of inertia, not getting a grasp in the queries. As a result, one program can intercept unencrypted data from another and use them for personal purposes.

What function did not work in Android 10

But where such candor, you ask? After all, it would make more sense not to disclose all the ins and outs of the upcoming innovations in public, and reserved it exclusively for developers who have to adapt their applications will work under the requirements Scoped Storage. But there is just all logical. Actually Scoped Storage was supposed to debut in Android 10, but the developers said, Google that do not have time to optimize the software, requesting additional time.

How effective is a show Scoped Storage is not clear yet, but something tells me that its implementation does not fundamentally change anything. The fact that the time integration of this technology depends on developers to provide full control over the execution of the established requirements Google most likely will not succeed. So almost certainly someone something goes wrong and those applications whose creators misinterpreted the guidelines, will be in danger of hacking.
