Android Go reaches 200 million daily users

Google first launched Android Go in 2017 to help more people get the best operating system through affordable mobile phones.

According to the company, more than 200 million people are currently actively using Android Go phones.

Google also announced that some of these affordable devices will receive updates from Android Go 12 and bring many of the new Standard Edition features to more devices.

With the upgrade, the company hopes to create a faster, smarter, and more privacy-conscious experience. It also makes these phones easier to use by improving functionality for multilingual users and introducing new devices that take data cost into account.

The startup speed of the application on the device can be increased by up to 30% and the animation becomes smoother. This means that they can be opened immediately without having to wait.

Google has also created the Splash Screen API so that all developers can provide a consistently smooth experience when the application is launched by the user.

Android Go 12 automatically saves battery life and storage space by putting apps to sleep that haven't been used for a long time, which is especially useful for devices with limited storage space.

At the same time, the updated Files Go app allows you to recover files within 30 days, so you can delete unnecessary files to free up space.

And Android Go 12 can make it easier for you to understand your content, too. Go to the recent apps screen and you'll see options to listen to messages and translate what's on the screen into your preferred language.

Apps run faster with Android Go 12

Apps are an important part of the smartphone experience. However, additional data charges sometimes apply when downloading.

With the new version of the operating system, you can share directly with your neighbors via Neighborhood Sharing and Google Play apps to save data.

In addition, you can share your device with your friends or family without worrying about privacy issues. Google simplifies the guest user experience by providing personal information directly from the lock screen.

You can easily go back to the guest profile before you shared it and reset it when you're done.

The operating system more clearly shows which applications are accessing your data. It also gives you more control to limit the amount of private information your app can access.

To this end, Google is adding a new privacy dashboard. You'll see screenshots of apps accessing certain types of sensitive data (like the microphone) and revoking permissions if necessary.

The new Data Protection screen in the status bar notifies you exactly when the app accesses your microphone or camera.

Google also gives you more control over how much information is shared with apps. With the new approximate location permissions, you can limit the app to display only your approximate location, not your exact location.
