Android 11 will allow you to restore deleted files
A Google executive confirmed that the new Android 11 will allow you to restore deleted files with a kind of trash can to keep deleted files, and can restore them within 30 days.
Google continues to implement new features in Android 11. This time, the company announced that the next version will have a tool similar to the Windows Recycle Bin. When the user deletes a file, it will not be deleted immediately, only moved to a location where it will be possible to recover it during a certain period.
The news was disclosed by Roxanna Aliabadi, Android Product Manager. The executive said the files moved to the trash will be kept for 30 days and can be restored at any time.
Seeking to make Android more secure and transparent, the new version will require applications to request user permission before modifying any media files. This will happen due to Storage by Scope, a technology that removes the unrestricted access of applications to the internal storage of the device and can make it difficult to install APKs.
According to the folks at XDA Developers, even though Google said the feature will arrive in the final beta, the “Android Recycle Bin” has been available since the first developer preview. To demonstrate how the API works, a developer created an application: the user is asked if they want to move a photo to the trash, and can restore it in up to seven days. Apparently, the company will extend the period in the latest version.
We still don’t know when Android 11 will be officially launched, but considering Google’s history, it is expected that the new system will be introduced between July and August this year. Until then, other news must be added.
At the moment, the beta version is available on the Pixel line devices and on some models from other brands, such as Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro .
