Feature’s of Android 11 Developer preview 3:
Update to app exit reasons :
Apps get closed or exited out for a bunch of different reasons, and with the exit reasons API, developers can get more details on recent exits from an app and why they happened.
Android 11 helps app developers understand why an app exited, and this API has been updated based on feedback.
Android Debug Bridge (ADB) Commands:
As we know Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command-line tool that lets you communicate with a device.
The adb command facilitates a variety of device actions, such as installing and debugging apps, and it provides access to a Unix shell that you can use to run a variety of commands on a device.
This allows developers to debug an Android phone on a computer using ADB commands without physically connecting the two.
This is expected to make the debugging process quite easy as developers will now just have to enable wireless debugging on their phones to continue with debugging between synced devices over the air.
Enable wireless debugging on your phone, confirm the pairing code, and your phone and computer will be synced using Android Debug Bridge( ADB )over your Wi-Fi connection.
