Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) Google said on Saturday that the company has postponed its plan to release a beta version of its latest Android 11 mobile operating system next week in light of protests and turmoil in the United States.
Google said in a message posted on its Android developer site: “We are happy to introduce you to more information about Android 11, but it is not yet a time to celebrate.”
According to the website, the event was originally scheduled for Wednesday. It said in a tweet that it would announce more details about the new version of Android “soon” without specifying any dates.
Protests spread across the United States because of the killing of George Floyd, a black Minneapolis Negro.
