In line with the launch of Android 11 and as part of the company’s engineering conference on September 10, Huawei released its newest software for Android, EMUI 11. We spent some time with its beta version before its announcement.
While HarmonyOS will act as a new paradigm change in the file software From Huawei, there are some quick changes on the horizon with the latest update to the Android interface, Emotion UI. Right now we find it in both smartphones as on company tablets, and it will bring changes to the show and performance.
What features does the EMUI 11 have?
Moving from EMUI 10.1 to EMUI 11 should not exclude existing Huawei users. Best of all, some EMUI 11 features are designed to improve user interaction, making it easier to keep track of where you’ve been and how your browsing has affected you. software.
Here is a summary of the key features of EMUI 11:
New AOD options
We start with something you usually see on a compatible mobile phone. Huawei has added new customization options to its Always-on Display configuration in EMUI 11.
You will find new categories such as ‘Artistic’, which include the construction of clocks named after famous artists and influential styles, such as ‘Mondrian’ or ‘Memphis’.
You can choose from a color palette to customize your screen and there is also an option to remove colors from your camera or gallery. If this does not suit you, you can use your own images and now support animations such as GIFs.
New gallery view
When viewing the photos tab in the traditional EMUI Gallery app, you can now switch from monthly to daily view with two fingers. Visual interface change is done with new animation to get an idea of where your photos are.
The albums tab, on the other hand, has a new 4: 3 format, which Huawei describes as “very powerful” and comes with new organizational options.
Change audio source
From Android 11 comes instant access to switch audio converters, which appear when playing video from various audio output and appear on mobile or tablet which you use.
You’ll find it in the notifications section or as a floating window and lets you change your favorite audio source with one touch.
Lots of smart screen
In part it is the emergence of an existing feature and in part a far-reaching measure: The performance of multiple EMUI screens has been upgraded to version 11.
You can now move the active floating windows, resize them and reduce them to the so-called ‘Quick Ball’, which you will find on the side of the screen. After that you have the option to choose which apps you want to switch to, as well as the option to switch from screen split mode with a simple touch: briefly press and drag.
For devices with a larger screen, such as folding phones as well pills, there are two floating apps running simultaneously, one next to the other.
Enhanced Notepad app
Now, you have the option to extract text from photos, either in your device’s gallery or directly on camera. This feature also supports texts longer than one page, so you can scan and extract text at long documents at the same time.
There are new Word document export options and the opportunity to send the extracted text via Huawei Share.
Multi-screen interaction 3.0
As an extension of the new features of the Notes app, those with multiple devices compatible with EMUI 11 and running multiple device interactions will be able to unlock Notepad from you tablet, tap the camera icon and select your phone from the menu. The portable camera will open and you can use it to extract text from an analog source in real time.
This camera (and microphone) that works on various devices comes with other applications, such as MeeTime and which may be available in the future for third-party video calling apps.
This mentioned above for most windows, when used in conjunction with MSC 3.0, now also supports up to three applications running on one PC at a time.
Some notable features of (or coming to EMUI 11)
MeeTime third party compliance compliance: Wireless compatibility for example with the KanDao Meeting 360º conference program and the Drift Ghost 4K + action camera.

Live thumbnails: User interface features with many animations, especially within the phone app dial-ups, notebook and Music.
Synced vibration: The new vibration combined to match the sound they go with to get a better haptic feel.
App permissions: The ‘Always Allow’ permission is now very hidden in the settings menu (so you can continue to use it at will) with the ‘Allow this time’ and ‘Allow only use’ preferences.
