Google is committed to bringing the power of Android to the world, which is why it has created Android Go, a lighter version of the operating system. It is still predominantly Android, but the software has been optimized for smartphones with lower performance processors, less memory, and less available mobile data. Android Go is an ultra-fast operating system designed for devices with less than 2 GB of RAM. Android Go differs from the main Android line in terms of its user interface.
The quick configuration panel gives greater importance to information about battery life, mobile data limits, and available storage. The menu for recent applications has a modified design and is limited to four apps to reduce RAM consumption. An API allows mobile operators to implement data tracking and reloading in the Android configuration menu. Android One is a hardware specification designed by Google for emerging markets.
It was originally intended to bring affordable and usable mobile devices to third world countries and other developing countries. However, recently it has become available in other parts of the world. Google wants to control everything with Android One, from hardware to software updates, set by the company, and manufacturers just have to agree. Project Fi has an Android One version of the Moto X4 available for purchase in the US, while the Xiaomi MI A1 is available worldwide.
The only major Android OEM that creates Android One devices on a regular basis is HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand. Android Go seems to be taking over what was originally designed for Android One. It is a mobile operating system designed for emerging markets and third world countries. It is almost half the size of “standard” Android, leaving more space available in just eight gigabytes of internal storage.
If there is a cost associated with it, it can be offset by the fact that Google itself benefits from having more users on Android.
