Here are 11 features that need to be in Android 11

Last year's Android 10 was a massive release. It had a system-wide dark theme, updated navigation gestures, dozens of privacy changes, and much more. However, stock Android still has a few missing features compared to the customized Android builds found on devices from third-party manufacturers, and there's even a few iOS features that would be nice to see.

The first preview builds of Android 11 will likely show up in the coming months, no doubt with even more features to make our smartphones and tablets more useful. Here are 11 changes we'd love to see added to Android 11, in no particular order.

Samsung Internet Browser introduces broader extension support, but only on Galaxy phones

Samsung Internet Browser is one of the few examples of OEM-designed apps that many people want to use over Google's equivalents. Ever since Samsung officially started supporting non-Galaxy phones, the browser has become one of the most popular for Android, thanks to its (minimal) extensions support, excellent dark mode, and fast Chromium-based core. Now the browser is adding support for even more types of extensions, but there are a few catches.

Chrome OS 78 Stable rolling out with Virtual Desks, improved printing, and YouTube app PiP (Updated)

Whenever Chrome is updated to a new version, a Chrome OS release naturally isn't far out. The operating system receives the same additions as the browser, such as click-to-call and improved native file handling, and gets some exclusives on top: Virtual desktops are rolling out with this release, and all compatible printers will automatically show up on your device without setup in the future.

OnePlus 7T review: Almost the perfect budget flagship

The OnePlus 7T sounds like my perfect phone on paper, packing a nice high-end chipset, a bright 1,000 nit 90Hz screen, and the latest Android 10 software. While flagships are pushing the market into fatigue at over a thousand dollars, this phone champions affordability at "just" $600. In fact, I loved almost everything about the OnePlus 7T, though folks like me who are picky when it comes to screens may be disappointed.

[Update: Snapshot builds] Vivaldi browser comes to Android with full-page screenshots and Opera-like 'Speed Dial'

Vivaldi has a reputation for being an extremely customizable Chromium-based browser, all while working very fast. It was created by the same developers that brought us Opera, and shares many of those same genes. After staying exclusively on desktops for the past three years, Vivaldi is finally available as a beta on Android starting today.

Update Notes for Gboard, YouTube, Android Auto, and more (Sept 14, 2019)

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

The best web browsers for Android

You probably don't think much about the web browser on your phone. No matter what browser you've grown accustomed to using, there are plenty of other options that might improve your experience. Unlike Apple, which requires all third-party browsers to use the Safari rendering engine (and doesn't allow other browsers to be the system default), Google allows any web browser with any engine to be published to the Play Store ⁠— giving Android phones and tablets more options for browsing the web than any iOS device.

In the post, we'll go over some of the best web browsers available for Android.
