Android 11 allows using Wireless ADB easier than before. Users may now use the ‘Wireless Debugging’ option in developer options. Your phone can then be paired to a PC using the pairing code workflow. However, Google has said that it will add a QR code scanning feature soon.

Data Access auditing

Users will also see updated data access auditing APIs in Android 11 Developer Preview 3. The company has renamed several APIs so updating your apps is a good idea.
