  • Files Go

At a Google For India 2017 press conference, the company said it's finally launching Android Go alongside the updated version of Android Oreo, Android 8.1 Oreo.

The lightweight operating system will also come bundled with Google's Files Go app.

And don't worry: The Go Edition sports numerous signature features of its parent, Android Oreo, including Google Play Protect, which scans app downloads for malware.

Android Go is now available for manufacuturers, alongside the new version of Android 8.1 Oreo, and it will be shipped on various entry-level devices within the coming months.

Smartphones that are compatible with with Android Oreo (Go edition) are those that only have 512MB to 1GB of RAM.

Android Go is the most secure version of Android till date with features such as Google Play Protect (that uses system and Cloud-based scanning to verify apps downloaded from the Google Play Store) integrated into the OS.

The Go Edition comes equipped with a bunch of data-saving features, which have the potential to save more than 600 MB of data per year. As entry level devices usually have little storage space, Google said it optimised the OS and enhanced its preinstalled Google apps to take up 50 percent less space, resulting in a doubling of available storage on entry-level devices.

Phones running on the new Google mobile operating system will also have access to a special version of its Google Play application store, the company said, highlighting the apps created to work best on the low-memory smartphones. The company also launched a Google Play Store that highlights apps designed for cheaper devices. Android 8.1 includes a neural network toolkit that lets apps run TensorFlow Lite and other AI frameworks on-device, instead of leaning on a distant server.

Also included in Android Go is Google's Data Saver mode from its Chrome browser. For example, Data Saver in Chrome saves the average user more than 600MB of data per year.

The user can also manage which apps can use background data with the built-in feature, giving them more control over how data is used.

The feature will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks to users, who will receive a notification when the feature becomes available to them. As for the overall user experience, Android Oreo (Go edition) will function very similarly to the regular version of Android. The Pixel Visual Core is Google's custom co-processor meant to improve image processing and machine learning features on the device. The Go edition will be close to indistinguishable from the regular version of Android Oreo, according to TechCrunch.

There are now more Android users in India than there are in the US, according to Google, and the company has its sights set on the "billions more" who don't yet have access.
