At Google I/O in May of this year, Google promised a version of Android custom-designed for low-end devices. Today, “Android Go (Oreo edition)” is being made available for device manufacturers and developers. That doesn’t mean it’s available to users yet — but presumably that’ll happen in fairly short order.The premise behind Android Go is pretty simple. It’s a build of Android Oreo that is designed to run better on phones with either 512MB or 1GB of RAM. By comparison, the Pixel 2 (like most flagships) has 4GB of RAM, while the iPhone X has 3GB and the Galaxy Note 8 has a whopping 6GB.Android 'Go' edition appsAndroid Oreo (Go Edition) also comes with a new app called Files Go. The app has three basic functions including freeing up space by deleting unwanted messages and more, finding files, photos and other content faster and sharing files without going online with people nearby. The app is available on Google Play for all Android devices.In addition, the company has introduced the 'Go' versions of Google Search, Google Assistant, Google Maps, Gmail and more. The existing app, YouTube Go now has new features that let users download content easily over Wi-Fi.Google Go is the stripped down version of Google Search app. It has the same function as Google Search but in a faster and easier way.Making the same operating system work on both flagships and the cheapest of cheap phones is a challenge, but it’s one Google says it’s overcome. Go edition is not meant to be a “fork” of Android Oreo so much as a variant that a manufacturer can just set by ticking off a configuration flag.Setting those configs does a few things. It sets the phone up to use the “Go” versions of a handful of Google apps — including the main Google app, Google Assistant, Google Maps, Gmail, and so on. Some of those apps, like YouTube Go, have special features for downloading stuff over Wi-Fi, In other cases, the “Go” versions are radically smaller than their regular variants. The smaller apps and slimmer OS can as much as halve the amount of storage that’s taken up by default on a brand new phone.http://en.newsdogshare.com/a/article/5a269ea712313a210ad9cad0/?company=android:xiaomi
