Google cancels Android 11 launch event

Monday 1 June 2020 | 08:50 CET | News
Google is delaying its Android 11 launch event and beta release, originally scheduled for 03 June. In a tweet, the company said it was "excited to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate". The decision appears to come in response to the widespread protests and riots in US cities in recent days, following the death of an African-American man while in police custody in Minneapolis, as well as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
