Android Oreo (Go Edition) Released For Low-powered Phones

In News
Android Go
is Google’s low-end version of its mobile operating system,
primarily created for emerging markets with low-data speed. This
effort has also been accompanied by the development of apps like
YouTube Go and Android Go. Now, the latest version of this
Android has been shipped by Google in the form of “Android Oreo (Go
Edition)
.”

Android Go was first showed off by Google at this year’s Google
I/O developer conference. Android Oreo Go has been made
available to OEMs, which means that it won’t be available to
the customers instantly. After the release, OEMs can start
producing the low-end phones powered by Android Oreo Go.

Running on devices with 512MB to 1GB RAM, the Android Oreo Go
experience will comprise of three major components:

  • Improved OS with security benefits and better data
    management
  • New set of Google apps for lighter experience: Google Go,
    Google Maps Go, Gmail Go, Google Play, Chrome, Google Assistant
    Go, YouTube Go, and Files Go
  • Specially crafted Play Store that highlights apps designed
    to work best on Android Oreo Go

As per Google’s claims, on an Android Oreo Go-running device,
an average application is about 15% faster. Also, thanks to the
storage optimizations, preinstalled Google apps take about 50%
lesser space. As a result, one would get twice the free
storage.

With the help of default data saver features, one can manage
which apps can suck background data. On the security front,
Google Play Protect will
work round the clock to scan the app installs; it works even if
you’re online or you’ve downloaded the app from a third party app store.

Google has also unveiled its Indian partners for the first Go
devices, which might arrive in early 2018. There’s no word on
the availability of Android Oreo Go devices in the US or
Europe.
