Google announced on Wednesday that over a quarter of a billion monthly active devices now run Android Go edition – built for phones with limited storage and memory – after five years of making its debut.
Android Go is a lightning-speed OS built for smartphones with less than 2 GB of RAM, runs lighter and saves data, making more possible on so many devices.
Following the release of Android 13 back in August, Google has also released Android 13 (Go edition), with a focus on reliability, usability, and customization.
Starting with this release, Google Play System Updates are available for Go devices, allowing phones to receive important software updates outside of a major Android release. Other marquee features include the Google Discover feed, the Material You design language, notification permissions and app language preferences.
Google added that new devices running Android 13 (Go edition) should arrive in 2023.
