Google postponed the announcement of Android 11 Beta due to protests rocking US cities | Instant News


Google has plans to unveil new features coming on Android 11 on June 3, but has decided to postpone the opening. In a tweet on Friday night, the Android developer account said that “We are very happy to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate.” Google said that it would “come back with more on Android 11, soon,” but did not say when that might happen.

Although Google doesn’t explicitly say the reason, the reason is very clear. The announcement came because many cities in America were filled with protests, looting, and fires. That Responding to the death of George Floyd in Minnesota has far surpassed the conflict in Minneapolis. The Gulf region where Google and most of its employees are based has witnessed major conflicts in San Jose and Oakland on the night that Google called the event. It is brutal night here in the Gulf area.

As us brother site Vox.com explained:

Protests against the excessive use of force by law enforcement have emerged throughout the country, including in Minneapolis, Denver, Los Angeles, Louisville, and Columbus, following the death George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was arrested on suspicion of forgery and pinned to the ground by police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was later pronounced dead in a regional hospital.

The incident follows a series of deaths of unarmed black people this year, including 26 years Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot by police at his home in Louisville, Kentucky, in March, and Ahmaud Arbery, who was jogging in the Atlanta, Georgia neighborhood, before being shot by two white men in February.

That rebellion and the government’s response to them has become very serious in the last few days. Not only has the FBI fly a weaponless Predator over Minneapolis, the President’s tweet about looting caused Twitter to write it down behind the warning about “glorifying violence.” It starts the chain of events that ends with executive order that, if there is a chance to survive the trial challenge, it will basically changing the nature of the entire internet.

At a practical level, Google is definitely aware that some people will be excited to be excited about the new features on Android. At the human level, delaying launch is the right thing to do.
