Operating System: Performance and storage improvements to the OS with data management features and security benefits built-in.
Google is now trying to maintain a good user interface (UI) by inhibiting weird ads which come in between apps irrespective of the time and place where you are standing in the middle.
But through rigorous optimisations, Google claims it has tweaked Android Oreo to smoothly on low-end devices, which should be a boon for people who don't want to fork out large amounts of cash or sign up to lengthy and expensive mobile contracts for a flagship phone.
Files Go is part of the Android Oreo Go operating system launched by the company in a press conference held in India. Also, thanks to the storage optimizations, preinstalled Google apps take about 50% lesser space. Along with enhancing some of the old apps, Google has also created some new apps including Google Go and Files Go.
Google on Tuesday announced a slew of products and features tailored for the Indian market. Previously known as Android Go, this new variant of Android is designed specifically for low-end Android devices with low memory and data usage in mind.
Google Go also supports a second language, so if you set one when you install it, you can switch your query and results to that language with just a tap. Google said using Data Saver in Chrome saves the average user more than 600MB of data per year. Today, Google officially introduced all these apps and revealed that these are primarily meant for the Android Go platform and will come pre-installed on the devices running on Android Oreo (Go Edition). Much like the application, Google Go will include options to access Facebook, CricBuzz and Instagram while allowing the user to translate their queries without any hassle. If you need to share them, you can easily do so with the app without having to connect to the Internet or using up your mobile data allocation.
Android Go, besides aiding in a smooth lag-free experience on bare-bone devices, will also ensure the software is relatively lighter on storage.
