Google has released Android 13 Go, a successor to the Android Go edition released by the tech giant five years ago. The new software powers the affordable line of smartphones with several new features including direct software updates. Google released a new version of the Go edition to satisfy the increased demand from users for the Go edition of its android software.
Android 13 Go Features
- Direct software updates
Updating phone software takes a lot of storage on low cost phones. With the number of apps that are downloaded, sometimes such a large download is simply not feasible. Google seeks to solve this problem with its new software.
"With Android 13 (Go edition), we’re bringing Google Play System Updates to Go devices which helps ensure devices can regularly receive important software updates, outside of the major Android release. This will make the delivery of critical updates quick and simple without compromising storage availability on the device. The result is a phone that stays up to date over time — and you don’t have to wait for the next release or a software push from your phone’s manufacturer to have the latest and greatest," writes Google.
- Personalized Content
Google has added built-in intelligence with the new edition that helps you get more personalized content on your phone. The new Go edition is fitted with a Discover feature that lets you swipe right from your home screen to see a curated list of articles and other content.
- Material You
With this feature, the tech giant has launched color scheme adjustments for budget-friendly android smartphones. "This new release brings Material You to Android Go for the first time, so you can customize your entire phone’s color scheme to coordinate with your wallpaper. When you set your wallpaper image, you’ll see four corresponding color schemes to choose from. Besides making for a beautiful home screen, the dynamic coloring really helps make your smartphone feel unique to you," informed Google.
Looking at the newly released features Google has tried to bring features that are equal to the Android 13 software. "In addition to the new features that are tailored to the needs of Go users, this update also brings some of key Android 13 features like Notification Permissions, App Language Preferences and more. Our goal with this release is to support more possibilities for the millions of current and future owners of an Android Go device. Look out for new devices launching with Android 13 (Go edition) in 2023," added Google.
Android Go has now captured over 250 million monthly active devices just five years after Google released the first version for entry-level devices. This is up from the 200 million Android Go monthly active devices milestone that Google shared in December last year. The search engine giant announced Android 13 Go edition to mark the occasion.click here!
