Google has released a new program with the code name Android Go at the ongoing Google I/O event. The main purpose of the Android Go program is to provide budget-centric smartphones and tablets for the emerging markets.
Google added that Android GO is a lightweight variant of the upcoming Android O platform. Moreover, the new platform is designed to work with smartphones with less than 1GB RAM.
In a statement released to the press, the search engine giant disclosed that they are designing exclusive apps to ensure low memory and storage consumption. Moreover, smartphones loaded with Android Go use less mobile data than the full-blown Android. If you work with Android Go loaded handsets, the apps such as Chrome, YouTube Go, and others use less mobile data.
Goole is also gearing up to redesign Play Store on devices loaded with Android Go. The company is keenly looking forward to providing an awesome user experience for all the apps designed to run only on the Android G operating platform.
During the Google I/O, the product team revealed that Android Go will be available to all the devices with less than 1GB RAM. Meanwhile, Google has advised developers to take steps to optimize their app without waiting for the official launch of the operating platform. Hence, the refreshed apps will be immediately available for all handsets with Android Go in 2018.
It remains to be seen as to how users will react to the Android Go platform because it looks identical to that of the Android One. Incidentally, the Android One was a big disaster for Google since the company never provided the promised updates. Moreover, the devices loaded with Android One never attracted users despite the huge marketing.
That said, Google had promised regular updates including improved user experience in budget-friendly smartphones with Android Go. However, we need to wait until the company launched the platform. We expect Google to unveil beta release of the Android Go by the end of November 2017.
