Google has cancelled the Android 11 Beta Launch Show which was scheduled to go live on June 3. The company has confirmed this delay through a tweet but has not specified ant reason for the cancellation. Initially the Google I/O event was scheduled from May 12 to May 14 but got cancelled due to COVID-19. After this, Google scheduled the Android 11 Beta Launch Show for June 1 which later postponed to June 3.
The tweet does not mention any new date for the beta launch show. Reason for the delay is unclear from the company but some reports predicts the reason to be ongoing protest in Oakland, USA due to the death of George Floyd. The tweet mentions “now is not the time to celebrate” hints for the reason stated above. Google does not want to launch the beta show in such a critical time and we respect the decision.
