In Android 11, Google intends to make it difficult to install apps outside the Play Store (install APKs), the famous APK. This must happen because of the new Scope Store.
The Android 11, the next version of the mobile operating system of Google , will make it difficult to install applications outside of the Play Store, the famous APK. One developer reported to Google that when permission to install is granted, the app is forced to close. The case was registered on the Issue Tracker platform and considered by the company to be normal.
If you’ve already installed an APK, you know that Android always asks for permission before installing third-party apps. Until version 10, the user was redirected to an area of the settings where it was necessary to enable the app in question and, when returning, the system resumed where it left off. On Android 11 things will be different.
The developers said that the next version will simply force the APK to close when the user gives permission to install it. According to Google, this is due to the new Scope Storage, which requires a complete reload of the app so that it is possible to access areas of memory that previously did not have.
Commenting on this, a Google representative said: “The way the file system and storage are set up on Android R has changed significantly. When an application starts without this permission, it has a limited view of the system that does not allow writing to certain directories As soon as the app receives this permission, that view is no longer accurate, and it needs to be reloaded for a view that allows writing to certain directories. “
In short: the app cannot change all the directories it has access to quickly, requiring a complete reload to be able to install APKs. However, if the permission to install third-party apps is granted in advance, the user is able to carry out the entire process without interruption.
Recalling that Android 11 Beta still has no date to be released, given that Google postponed the event scheduled for June 3 due to protests in the USA due to the death of George Floyd. We will have to wait to know when that version will be presented.
