HI~In today's topic, I will share about "Android Go". Andriod Go project is Google initiative to optimize the Android experience for billions of people coming online around the world.
What is Android Go?
Android Go is Google’s latest attempt to build a version of Android specifically designed for low-end phones, and the company has announced that we’ll start to see the first devices running the slimmed-down OS at Mobile World Congress. As their promise, we have seen many companies joined together with Google and released the devices.
When did Andriod Go announce?
Android Go was first announced at Google I/O last May as a version of Android that’s meant to work on cheaper, less powerful phones with as little as 512MB or 1GB of RAM. A version of the operating system — awkwardly dubbed “Android Go (Oreo edition)” — was made available to device manufacturers and developers in December, and now we’re finally reaching the point where actual devices will be released.
Know More About Andriod Go
Google describes Android Oreo Go Edition as, “A new experience for smartphones with 1GB of RAM or less,” and is fine-tuned for devices with specific hardware configurations. It still comes with the Google Play Store installed, but it pushes apps designed for Go or those that operate best on it, to the forefront. You can still install all regular Android apps though, so there are no restrictions in place.
"Saving space, wherever it's needed." With smaller app sizes, more storage space, and way more control over how your content is stored, it’s easy to see the ways Android Oreo (Go edition) helps you save.
"More storage out of the box." With fewer pre-installed and much lighter apps, you get 2x more available storage out of the box. Storage issues, solved.
Built to use less." Brand new apps designed for lighter updates and downloads help create more space while significantly improving performance. That’s what we call a win, win.
We have Gmail, YouTube, Google Search, Assistant, Maps, PlayStore, Gboard and Chrome in Go Edition. Along with this inbuilt app we have A new app from Google, created to help you quickly find files and get rid of any unwanted content - embarrassing selfies included. So isFiles Go app.
Optimized Google apps
Rebuilt and optimized versions of Google apps, using less memory, storage space, and mobile data

Google Assistant Go: For the first time ever, Google Assistant is available on smartphones with 1GB or less of memory. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s lighter, faster, and always ready to help.
Gboard: Everything that makes a keyboard useful, built right in. Autocorrect, voice typing and multilingual typing help you communicate more easily. When it’s time for more fun, say it with GIFs, Emoji, or choose one of our 220 languages—the most variety of any other keyboard.
"Data that has your back." With a built-in data manager and more options to help you save, there are now more ways than ever to stay in control of your data. Because data is meant to be enjoyed, not just used.
Data Saver: Manage which apps get to use your data and when, it’s like having your own sidekick, but for data.
"Security that never sleeps." Entry-level smartphones now have the same key security features as Android Oreo. And every Android smartphone comes with Google Play Protect, built-in mobile security that keeps your apps and data safe, 24/7.
Google teamed up with app developers to bring a brand new and equally reliable suite of apps to the forefront of your smartphone.
