Android Go

 

The Google's I/O 2017 became the proving grounds of various new technologies and features to the Google ecosystem. Even though the keynote of the event circled mainly around Google Assistant and Google Home, Android Go is mostly unknown and ignored by many.

Here Is Why Android Go Is Important

Android Go project is to make the Android Operating system more widely available, affordable and attractive. The project though its meaning is not completely revealed, the collected information says a lot about this upcoming project. 

This project is likely to contain a wave of new smartphones that are not premium but can do the work required. The devices will be mostly like the Android One smartphones once released in India. Android One involved production of low-budget but capable smartphones and Google teamed up with various makers like Micromax, Karbonn for this project.

But Android Go is comparatively bigger and most likely will occur on a larger scale. The objectives of Android Go not only involves making phones but also presses on the apps ecosystem.

Android Go has three main objectives:

  1. Operating system (OS) Optimization
  2. Apps Optimization
  3. Play Store Optimization

 

OS Optimization

This involves the creation of perfect synergy between hardware and software of a device. The OS must work in perfect synchronization with the hardware available. This includes optimal usage of battery, memory and processing power. OS optimization will be high if the hardware and software belong to the same organization.  which Google now capable of.

Apps Optimization

The Android Go will feature memory-friendly and battery-saving apps. The lite versions like Facebook Lite, Skype Lite, and Messenger Lite are the best example for these type of apps. App optimization is the main thing of the Android Go project. 

Play Store Optimization

Play store is the home of all these apps and Android Go will try to develop and make the house more clean and useful. The updates will be discussed later but in simple words - there will be no more trash and unnecessary clutter.

YouTube Go released exclusively this year in India completely reveals the capabilities of Android Go project. The app which is less than 10 MB can be used to play, download and share videos with simplistic UI and optimized design.The app is one of the best lite apps on the play store at present. 

What is not yet know is the involvement of third-party developers in the development of apps for this project along with the hardware manufacturers involved to make the Android Go devices. But these will soon be revealed in the plethora of announcements in the coming months.
