Android 11 has been announced since last year, and development is ongoing for users to experience improve smoothness than the present Android 10. Although the software is expected to come with series of improved and added features as successor, however, one of key features of the Android 11 OS is the presence of Hidden Recycle Bin.
The Recycle Bin on the Android 11 will help users to recall deleted files. It works in a way whereby user will move it file to Bin instand of deleting it completely and be able to recover it just as it was in Computer.
What is Recycle Bin
In computer, a Recycle Bin is a place where Deleted files and folders are temporarily kept and can be recalled back anytime.
The definition above works exact way with the Android 11 recycling bin. The files that are trashed will be hidden by default on the recycle bin and will not be accessible to users in a way like how the Recycle Bin on a computer provides access to deleted files.
Unfortunately, this forthcoming Recycle Bin on Android 11 is limited on how long it can accommodate trashed files before it will be deleted permanently — just like Google Keep Android App. File that has been trashed will be permanently deleted automatically by the operating system after 30 days.
Roxanna Aliabadi YouTube video noted that “Trash files can be untrashed at any time before its expiration by an app that has added access to it or with user consent.”
By default, users won’t have access to the files trashed on Android 11. However, apps that will have user consent and include edit access to trashed files will display them from the hidden recycle bin.
A further go ahead order was also given to developers as it was noted that the new experience will be provided through an updated MediaStore API. Developers using this app will be able to enable the trash option on their apps.
