Well apart from that, Google announced the Files Go storage manager app and Android Oreo (Go Edition) for entry-level devices.

To go with the Android Oreo Go platform, there will be scaled down versions of the standard Google apps on offer as well to ensure the devices perform smoothly.

The new Google Play Store recommends the apps most compatible with Android Oreo (Go Edition). Google claims it to be a powerful experience for entry-level smartphones, which offers the best of Android, built with new and reimagined apps. Android Go is basically a special configuration of Android 8.1 Oreo meant for low-end devices with 1GB RAM or less.

The OEMs will now be able to test and run the Go edition OS on low-end hardware. This was among the several India-focused announcements the internet giant made on Tuesday, chief among them being a version of Android called Android Go, which consumes less data and comes with a suite of "Go" apps that take up less space.

Google has recently encouraged developers to design apps in accordance with its Building for Billions Guidelines, to optimize them for phones in developing markets.

There are now more Android users in India than there are in the USA, according to Google, and the company has its sights set on the "billions more" who don't yet have access. Files Go's smart filters automatically organize images, videos, apps, documents, and more to make it easy to find different kinds of media.

Google noted that Android has grown to more than 2 billion active devices around the world, with more users in India than the US. There will also be an option of peer-to-peer sharing and the entry-level smartphones will also have the same key security features as Android Oreo.

Google introduced its new Datally app, which helps monitor and save mobile data. First, typing on a small device can be slow and cumbersome, and people may not know what to look for online, so Google Go's tap-first user interface helps users express themselves, explore new ideas, find things to share and guide them around the web. Google has partnered with Reliance to bundle a light version of Google Assistant on Jio feature phones.

Like we already said, the app is now available in India and Indonesia, and, it's available for download from Google Play Store.
