Google's Android Go phones might arrive in India by Diwali

Both Android Go's product manager Arpit Medha as well as Google CEO Sundar Pichai have made it clear that this is not a replacement for Android One. As it works to prepare its next mobile OS update, Google will also keep a focus on its new Android Go initiative, Burke said.

Android mobile device users linking their Android Pay and PayPal accounts will soon be able to use Android Pay through the Chrome mobile browser to pay for purchases at online merchants that accept PayPal, the companies announced at the Google I/O conference this week. Given this flexibility, as little as $100 might be all it takes to have access to the latest features and security updates. CNBC was also a launch partner for Actions on Google for the Google Assistant on Google Home in December 2016.

One of the most interesting features of the first beta version of Android O had been the possibility of the operating system to turn on the Wifi automatically when detecting a known network, a network for which we have already entered the password previously and the one that we can connect to without problem. A more universal system - one that also is built on Google's open source platform - could make it easier for hackers to target vehicles. Google also designed the service to minimize data usage on bandwidth-hungry services like YouTube. However, it failed to take off in key markets, like India, because the companies that manufactured the devices couldn't make much money just selling the hardware.

Android Auto, which launched three years ago, was created to provide drivers with an easy way to access information - including navigation, streaming audio and communications - while minimizing potential distractions.

Called Android Go, this software will automatically enable data-saving features and will steer users toward apps designed specifically for low-priced hardware. And if a particular app is in the bottom 25% of certain measurement rankings for stability, battery drain or rendering, its developer will be hearing from Google.

"The enabling of apps for this API will provide greater compatibility across vehicles", said Bird. Google is taking things even further by separating parts of the operating system that can be pared down. "Some people have a special person in their life for whom it is still kind of annoying to [ask] to hit share", Lieb says.

Facebook Inc. tried a similar app-curation strategy picking a suite of services to "zero-rate", or subsidize the data charge. To use it, you can enroll in Android O Beta.

Last week, there was an uproar in the aftermarket development community when the Netflix app would not appear in Google Play Store search queries coming from rooted devices.
