Android Go is designed to work on devices with 1 GB or less of RAM, and the company is designing its apps to use less memory, storage space and mobile data.
During its I / O event yesterday, Google unveiled a brand new program called Android Go. The goal of the new program is to provide budget-friendly devices for developing markets. Android GO is a lighter version of the upcoming Android O and is designed to work on devices with 1GB or less of RAM. The company notes that it is designing their apps to use less memory, storage space and mobile data. This includes apps like YouTube Go, Chrome and Gboard. On such devices, the Play Store will promote a better user experience by highlighting apps specifically designed for such devices.
Android Go 2018 will provide shipping statistics on all devices with 1GB or less of memory. The company has asked developers to optimize their apps for upcoming OS.
The Android Go program seems to be very similar to the Android One program that the company launched a few years ago. Like Android Go, the One was created to provide a better user experience as well as regular updates for those who use budget devices. However, very few Android One-based devices have been launched in India. The latest device to be launched in India was the Lava Pixel V1, which was launched in 2015.
