There are as of now more Android users in India than there are in the U.S., as indicated by Google, and the company has its sights set on the “billions more” who don’t yet have an access to it.
The company has additionally released lightweight “Go” versions of its prominent applications including Youtube Go, Google Maps Go, and Gmail Go that take up to 50 percent less space than their full-sized siblings. The company likewise launched a Google Play Store that highlights applications designed for less expensive gadgets.
This light version of Android Oreo additionally houses another application called Files Go that lets you sort out, move, explore, and share your applications, images, recordings, documents, and more.
Google has as of late urged developers to design applications as per its Building for Billions Guidelines, to upgrade them for phones in its markets that are developing. Its Developers site gives guidance to designing applications for users with constrained availability, supporting gadgets with less propelled illustrations and displays, and saving battery life.
