Google for India: Navigation for two-wheelers, Android Oreo Go among new launches

Google for India: Navigation for two-wheelers, Android Oreo Go among new launches

This effort has also been accompanied by the development of apps like YouTube Go and Android Go. Files Go is globally available from today on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher.

Furthermore, the Google Play Store in Android Oreo (Go edition) contains a special section in which users will be able to find recommended apps for entry-level devices such as theirs. Similarly, the new OS isn't that storage intensive as well, which means its target devices will have lesser storage on board though Google didn't mention as to how low of a memory that the Android Oreo Go devices will come with.

Android Oreo (Go edition) has been fine-tuned for speed and reliability, so the average app will run 15% faster on the devices taking advantage of this light-weight OS. Google has also announced the Google Go search app for India and Indonesia.

Before you confuse Android Go with Android One, let's make things clear - Android One is a program where device manufacturers work with Google to get the optimum Android experience on midrange smartphones, whereas Android Go is a lightened version of the mainstream Android OS that any device manufacturer can help themselves with for extremely affordable smartphones.

Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama will vie for national championship
The Tide's last appearance was in the CFP's inaugural season where the Crimson Tide suffered a 42-35 loss to the Ohio State. For the first time, two teams from the same conference - Alabama and Georgia from the SEC - are among the final four teams.

This is the first time Voice Assistant will be available in any feature phone. And now, the company has launched the Google Assistant for feature phones. Files Go also uses Google's latest Mobile Vision technology to detect memes.

Launching another India first product, Two-Wheeler Mode in Google Maps, Martha Welsh, Director Google Maps said, "India is the world's largest two-wheeler market and the navigation needs of these millions of riders are different from automobile drivers". The second feature is that the new Google Go app comes with small app size and lastly, Google has made it easy to switch between languages, for instance, Hindi and English.

The Files Go app is also said to create a closed network that can be accessible only by approved smartphones in any particular area to share files by creating a hotspot. Amongst all the announcements, the major one is the Google Assistant for Reliance JioPhone.

When it launched a year ago, the Google Assistant was an exclusive feature of Google Pixel devices. She said, "In spite of the socio-economic challenges, thousands of Internet Saathis have gone on to do awesome things, once they learnt the Internet".
