As you know, Google is a giant in the world of technology. And with that comes massive changes to their products and services on a regular basis. latest example of this is the announcement of sweeping Android changes in India. From here on out, all Android devices will come with Google Play Services pre-installed, meaning that OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) will no longer be able to include their own versions of the Play Store. This move is significant for a few reasons; first and foremost, it means that users will have a consistent experience across devices. Second, it gives Google more control over the distribution of apps; currently, there are multiple versions of the Play Store available, which can create confusion for users. This change is also significant for Indian users; as the market for Android devices grows increasingly competitive, these changes will level the playing field for OEMs and give users a more streamlined experience.
What’s new in Android 8.1?
Android 8.1 Oreo brings a number of new features to the operating system, including support for not only Hindi, but also 15 other Indian languages. The update also includes new emojis that are specifically designed for India, as well as updated security features and bug fixes.
The biggest change in Android 8.1 is the introduction of Project Treble, which will allow more hardware manufacturers to build Android devices using a standard codebase. This should make it easier for users to find compatible devices and increase the speed of software updates.
Other new features in Android 8.1 include improved performance when using multiple apps at the same time, better support for dark themes, and a feature called “picture-in-picture” mode that lets you watch video while continuing to work on another app.
What do the changes mean for Indian users?
Google announced sweeping Android changes in India today, aimed at making the platform more user-friendly and improving the overall experience for Indian users. The main changes include a new Quick Settings menu that allows users to customize their device’s settings quickly, as well as new gestures and controls that make using the phone easier. Additionally, Google is introducing an “Indian voice” for its Assistant software, which will be specifically tailored to Indian users’ needs. These changes are set to roll out to all Android devices starting this month, so everyone who uses Android in India should start seeing the effects soon.
