Google postponed its Android 11 presentation over protests in Minneapolis

Alphabet Inc’s, the parent company of Google, has announced that the presentation of a new version of the Android operating system scheduled for June 3 will not take place. “We would love to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate,” the message says.

The company promised to announce the new presentation date in the near future. Due to which it was decided to postpone the event, the message is not specified.

Google’s headquarters is located in Mountain View, San Francisco Bay Area. May 29, protests were held in the largest city of the bay – San Jose, as well as in many other U.S. cities.

For the fourth day in a row, riots continued in the United States after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. He was injured during his detention and later died in hospital. The video footage, which was taken by an eyewitness, shows a policeman strangling an unarmed man lying on the asphalt with his knee for several minutes. After the incident, all four police officers involved in the arrest of Floyd were dismissed. One of them, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with manslaughter and detained.

Despite the arrest of the policeman, the riots continued. At first, only Minneapolis residents protested, but on Friday they were supported by other major cities.
