    I can wait. I did the beta testing last year for 10. It was a learning experience, and I'm glad that none of the versions broke my phone. But, it was also a bit nerve wracking.

    After reading a lot of positive experiences and not many serious bugs I went ahead and opted in to the beta. I'm up & running Android 11. Haven't seen a lot new so far, and seems to be running smooth. I didn't want to jump in right away with my daily driver phone, but what's the absolute worse that can happen....I have to roll back to 10 and factory reset? I guess I could live with that.

    Welcome to the Forum. A few of us are running the 11 Beta (maybe more that haven't posted anything yet) and seems to be OK. As with any beta software there might be a few minor glitches here & there, but it seems pretty smooth & polished at this point with Beta 3.

    I joined the Beta 3 group. My 4XL is running just fine, so far.

    I was changing my wallpaper this morning and decided to edit my current home screen style too. I noticed that somewhere along the way, maybe Android 11, Google added some new icon shapes to the Style section. Cool![​IMG]

    I just noticed that Google removed the built-in File Manager app with Android 11. I already had Files By Google installed, but just noticed that the File Manager app is gone. After a quick search I found some articles confirming this; apparently Google is going with Files By Google with Android 11.

    Has anyone else experienced the swipe up for Recents bug? Where you go to swipe up & hold to access the Recent app list, and absolutely nothing happens? It's just unresponsive. A reboot fixes the issue, and then it returns a few days later (or a week or so). It's happened to me about 3 times lately. It's in the list of beta reported issues to Google, and assigned to the dev team. I submitted a feedback report also, just for the heck of it. The more that report it should make sure Google is aware.
