The new Android 11 API will be a breath of fresh air for apps like TikTok.
TikTok could be one of the main beneficiaries of the launch of Android 11 Due to the new API that Google has perfected in the latest version of the operating system, which allows applications to use two cameras simultaneously.
Beyond its most interesting news, this possibility that Android 11 will offer has come to light, and that applications like TikTok will be able to integrate into its interface, to, for example, be able to record the reaction of the person who records –with the front camera– while the latter plays a joke on someone, which would be recorded with the rear camera.
With Android 11 you can use two cameras at the same time
Google has been simmering Android 11 for a while, and now it seems to be giving it the latest brushstrokes before launching this new version of Android that, as always, would come with a companion Google Pixel, that after all, it is the best exponent in terms of software that we find on Android right now.
On the Android Developers website you can find all the changes that there are in terms of API and functions in each version of Android, and as pointed out by AndroidPolice Google would have shown that now applications will be able to view and use two cameras on the device at the same time, And this is especially relevant when we talk about the combination of rear camera and front camera, especially on social networks like TikTok, whose growth is exponential and in which we find an enormous amount of content created directly with the mobile.
And this means that while recording a video with the main camera of your device, you can also record your reaction through the front camera, something quite curious. Android 9 already included an API that allowed to carry out this use of two cameras simultaneously, but now the developers will have it easier to be able to implement it in their applications, and surely there are quite a few content creators capable of taking advantage of this new functionality that we will see with Android 11. Although, of course, it will have to be the developers who make it possible this in your applications.
We have already seen before how Nokia has been able to introduce this double photography mode in its terminals, with which we could take a picture with the rear camera at the same time we take a selfie, And now it is the applications like TikTok, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook that are going to be able to make use of this possibility, which opens the doors to new ways of creating content, and that is always welcome.
Android 11 was presented in society in May and from that moment many users are looking forward to trying the new version of Google’s operating system, It brings many interesting changes at the operational and organizational level, which you can see first hand whenever you have a mobile that will receive Android 11.
