There are some decent number of announcements at the Google I/O 2017 event and the one that stole the limelight is the Android Go project. The new ambitious project from Google will replace the Android One project by delivering a lite version of Android to low-cost Andriod phones.
The Android Go project comprises of a lite version of the Android O aimed at the phones with 1GB RAM of less. Currently, all the Android phones irrespective of the hardware uses the same ecosystem, which is making the phones literally unusable at times due to the lack of insufficient equipment required by the core Android.
The Android Go will focus on three major things- OS, Apps, and Google Play Store. The OS as mentioned earlier will be stripped down to match the hardware, and it will comprise of lite Google apps such as YouTube Go, etc.
Finally, the Google Play Store itself will be a lite version which shows only the apps which will run smoothly on the platform. The Android Go project will be live in smartphones later this year, according to Google.
