Conversation bubbles: although this feature was already available in android 10, Google is including it within its wrap-up of Android 11 features, which leads us to believe Google is going to push harder for this to be adopted by more developers and OEMs.
Enhanced one-time permissions:
earlier we had to give permission one by one for all those services like microphone, calls, camera, etc, but with android 11 you can give all the permissions in just one tap.
Android doesn’t make it easy for you to see previously dismissed notifications, with Android 10’s Notification Log hidden for users. Android 11 DP1 hinted at a Notification History option and DP2 confirmed it. The new feature looks like it will be pretty useful.

because there are so many apps that are constantly stealing data from Android users, Android 11 DP3 has introduced a new option to automatically revoke permissions such as camera, location, and more, from apps that haven’t been used for a while.
also, you can decide how you want to give app permissions.
Revamped power menu:
now with Android 11, you’ll be able to do a lot more with the power menu button. with the power menu, you can quickly access to smart home controls, your Google Wallet cards, and power options and a lot more.

Media players now head to quick settings:
If you’re listening to music on your phone, you’re used to finding a media player in your notification shade. In Android 11, the player will move to the quick settings area and get a few more tools, including the ability to easily pick an output device. However, even in the first beta, this feature is switched off in development options.
Pixel 4 Face Unlock will require you to open your eyes:
