Google launches lighter Android Oreo (Go edition) for entry level devices

Files Go

Smartphones that are compatible with with Android Oreo (Go edition) are those that only have 512MB to 1GB of RAM.

Sadly, most Android users will have to keep waiting for Android 8.1 to roll out, as Android 8.0 is barely ready to roll out on a limited number of devices, and today's update is only available for Pixel and Nexus devices.

In Android Go, the Google Play Store offers a streamlined experience, showcasing Go-optimized apps that won't impact storage space or run slowly, and phones are also protected with Google's Play Protect, which is now a standard security feature in all Android Oreo devices.

To help bikers find the most suitable route in India, Google has incorporated navigation routes for two-wheelers with Voice Assistant capabilities in its Maps feature. As you use the app more, it'll fine-tune its suggestions, Google says.

And don't worry: The Go Edition sports numerous signature features of its parent, Android Oreo, including Google Play Protect, which scans app downloads for malware. Android Oreo (Go edition) smartphones also come with a version of the Google Play Store that enables users to download any app, while highlighting the apps created to work best on Go edition devices. Google Go is easy-to-use and works fast even on entry-level devices and spotty connections, making discovering, sharing and finding content easy and more reliable.

New Delhi- Firming up its commitment to connect the next billion Indians by focusing on entry-level smartphones, Google on Tuesday announced several India-first products and features, some of which will be rolled out in other countries soon.

All of these features are great for users who have cheap devices with meager internal specs. Third, it is easy to switch and see answers in another language, for example between Hindi and English. Android Go is roughly half the size of Android 7.0 Nougat, saving a good deal of space for media the user really wants. Finally, the Google Play Store version on the OS will be adjusted.

Announcing The Google Assistant for the JioPhone, Gummi Hafsteinsson, Product Management Director said, "For the first time ever globally, the Google Assistant will be available on a feature phone".

The operating system also includes a new app called Files Go that helps you organize, back up, navigate, and share your apps, images, videos, documents, and more. This could be a lifesaver for users of entry-level smartphones, many of which use prepaid SIM cards.

Reiterating Google's mission to improve digital literacy amongst women in rural India, Sapna Chadha, Marketing Head, SEA & India, Google today announced the extension of the Internet Saathi program, to support the Foundation For Rural Entrepreneurship Development (FREND) set up by Tata Trusts.
