Google ships a big pile of… code, with no commitment to update your device.

Speaking at the Microsoft’s Ignite conference in Chicago, Microsoft’s Windows chief Terry Myerson said the above lines.

He added, “Google takes no responsibility to update customer devices and refuses to take responsibility to update their devices, leaving end users and businesses increasingly exposed every day they use an Android device.”

Myerson was speaking about the irregular and irresponsible approach of Google to deliver constant security updates and to its Android smartphones. He focused on the risks businesses might face due to the same and talked about the new security plans in the upcoming Windows 10 operating system.

In the Windows Blog, the software giant writes that the new security features in Windows 10 will be far ahead from its competition (i.e. Google). Microsoft currently manages more than 850M devices and serves them with its free service Windows Update. With Windows 10, the company aims to improve the support by offering “Long Term Servicing Branches.”

While pointing out the flaws in Android, Microsoft mentioned its plans to deliver timely updates to Windows 10 by bypassing the troublesome carriers. The Windows Phone users are a bit more stratified with the update process as compared to Android 5.0 Lollipop’s terrible track record.

Terry Myerson said that the company doesn’t plan to deliver all the updates to all users on one single day. Instead, it will continue to deliver updates in distribution rings.

Apart from this, Microsoft launched Windows Update for Business today. This is similar to consumer update and is designed for businesses to get regular updates.
