android go edition

Google’s latest Android 9 Pie mobile operating system was recently released and it’s getting all the attention it deserves. The miserable state of Android updates seems to be getting better with Project Treble; Essential’s first-day rollout of Android Pie update is an example of the same.

But, what about the lesser powerful and no-so-flagship devices? To make Android deliver its best possible experience on lower-end devices, Google launched Android Go Edition last year and the second iteration of the same is about to hit the shelves.

In an official blog post, Google has announced that it’ll be releasing Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) later this fall.

When the first batch of Android Go devices was released earlier this year in April, it arrived on 200+ models in 120+ countries. By the end of this year, more than 100 OEMs are planning to offer newer Go devices.

What’s new in Android 9 Pie (Go Edition)?

You might be already knowing about the wave of Go edition apps Google is pushing forward by keeping the low-end, Go devices in mind. With the upcoming release, you can expect —

  • Faster boot times
  • Better security features like verified boot
  • Up to additional 500MB storage available
  • Dashboard for tracking data consumption

Apart from these features, Google is also continuously adding new features in Go app and improving their experience.
