Yesterday, Google released new versions of its Android operating system dubbed Android Go. The new OS is built specifically for entry level or low-end smartphones with RAM size of 512MB or 1GB.

Compared to the usual Android version, it is characterized by specific optimizations for smartphones with weaker hardware, but there is also a new set of Google Apps, which were developed specifically for such an environment.

For example, a current Android-Go system image is supposed to occupy only half the space of a full installment of Android 7. This is especially important on devices with little available space, but in these price, categories are still often sold devices with only 8 GB, of which in a normal Android install little is left.

Emphasis

There is also a relevant change in the Play Store: Go-Devices will focus on “lite” versions of popular apps, such as Facebook or Skype. Other Android go-apps include “Files Go,” a disk space optimization and file-sharing tool that’s been available on the Play Store for a few weeks now. Although the Google Assistant is also available here, it has been outsourced to a separate app, otherwise, it’s part of the Google app.

Focus

By the way, the official announcement of Android Go was made during an event in India, which also makes it clear which markets are the primary target. The first devices, which are delivered with Android Go, are to come according to the software manufacturer in the beginning of 2018 on the market.
