Android Go, explained: Everything You Need To Know About Google’s New Project

by | Mar 5, 2018 | Apps, Smartphones

Google has announced Android Go, a stripped-down version of the Android software designed to work on low-end phones that have 1GB RAM or less. Here’s a quick breakdown of how Google’s exciting new program works.

What is Android Go?

Android Go is a simpler, bared down version of the original Android software. What it does is it strips away all the software’s extraneous features and shrinks the software to work only on its foundational functions.

What are Android Go apps?

In conjunction with the software rehash, Google has also been releasing “Go Edition” apps, including Gmail and YouTube. These apps are similarly small in size and stripped-down to the barest minimum in terms of functionality. In addition, “Go Edition” apps save a whole lot of storage space and data—crucial for people who scant amounts of both.

These apps aren’t however exclusive to Android Go phones as they are available in the Play Store; inversely, Android Go phones aren’t restricted to “Go Edition” apps and can install original version of the respective apps.
