Google I/O 2017: What Is Android Go?

Also at the Wednesday event, Google said its voice-powered digital assistant, known as Google Assistant, is available on Apple Inc.'s iPhones starting immediately, in addition to its availability on more than 100 million devices. There may also be the outside chance that Google could try to challenge HTC, Oculus, and PlayStation by announcing its own entry high-end VR headset.

"It is forcing us to reimagine our products for a world that allows a more natural, seamless way of interacting with technology". Italian, Spanish and Korean will arrive by the end of the year.

Opening Android Pay up and allowing folks to leverage just about any auto they have used or associated with their Google account is a smart move, as it may make them a bit readier to make payments.

This includes Notification Channels that let app developers provide users with more fine-grained control over different kinds of notifications. Remember Android One? It was sort of an initiative to bring more affordable Android devices running stock Android. A feature called Google Play Protect, meanwhile, will scan all your apps for malicious software.

There has been a 2X reduction in Android O's boot time on Pixel devices.

The new system will prolong battery life, the company said. It has launched a program for cheaper, entry-level devices. Go is basically a light version of Android O with optimised apps and Play Store. But given the amount of malicious apps that have managed to creep into the Play Store in the past few years, one can easily denounce such a statement.
