When you look at something for a while, you begin to notice details in the object of consideration. Small subtleties that make an object, face, place or nothing unique. Seeing all these details, you can learn more about what you look at - whatever the object does, wherever it is and wherever it is going to. The Android operating system has existed and flourished for six years, and now it’s easy to understand what will happen next. The brainchild of Google has a great future - this is today's topic of discussion, so go under the cut, because there you will find many different interesting things.
At the last conference for developers of Google I / O 2014, a detailed review of which is available on the best mobile portal Treshbox.ru, the largest technology corporation went through a storm of interesting announcements. The main things out of everything were two things, and they obviously demonstrate the distant future of the Android operating system. Starting with a project called Android One, Google has set a course for conquering emerging markets around the world. The Android One program gives manufacturers the opportunity to produce low-cost and high-quality mobile products that will work with the cleanest software out of the box and receive current updates from Google on time.
Budget smartphones have long been a bane to the existence of the Android operating system. More than once there were times when people were dissatisfied with Android smartphones, because the market was flooded with cheap and low-quality products. To stop the global infection of Android, Google introduced a program to create high-quality and budget smartphones Android One. Android One is a kind of budget family of Google Nexus. People will buy high-quality Android smartphones - this is exactly what Google wants to make the first green robot experience. Also, users will no longer worry about whether an update will be released for their purchase - as a result of all this, the number of new customers will only grow.
With the Android One project, Google will help not only in the further growth of Android, but also help to eliminate the main disadvantages for its own customers in the coming years. The operating system has a much more interesting future than just continued growth in the mobile market. With the release of the largest update since the release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich under the currently laconic name Android L, the mobile OS will undergo not only a significant strengthening of positions, but also changes in general: the new Material Design language, made in the style of the latest fashion, many new cool and useful features, a step towards massive cross-platform and a gradual merger with the Chrome OS cloud platform.
Android roots suffered from fragmentation and lack of cohesion. The problem only got worse over time, especially when Google split the operating system for smartphones and tablets. With the release of the large-scale update Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, this problem was solved, however, users of several versions of the green robot got the wrong experience with Android.
Looking from this point of view, the search giant took small steps, the main purpose of which was to unite Android - especially with other Google products and services. Today, Android is faster in speed and a smoother operating system, which does not require a large amount of RAM and large computing power for comfortable operation. This allowed, in theory, to produce more budget devices, as well as equip them with newer versions of Android. With the advent of Android L and Material Design, unity will come and the ecosystem will reach a whole new level of development.
Android L and Material Design
Android L is an update that will make the operating system faster, with a higher level of battery life and with even more variety of functions. Android L, like Android 4.4 KitKat, requires significantly less power to fully work than previous versions of Android, which, you see, were pretty voracious in every sense. The new material design will also make itself felt - in the future it will extend to absolutely all Google software. This approach may seem to be expected, but it really is what Android has long been necessary for. Google products have always been felt separately from each other, even if they are used in close interconnection in order to obtain full functionality. In addition, before the green robot had various design styles, but with the advent of material design, you can still guarantee that Google products will become one and whole, and that incredible ecosystem will be felt.
The great advantage of design cohesion is that it gives the Android operating system a personality - a unique personality. Over time, people will begin to associate Material Design with Google and, in turn, with Android. People will see the application made in the style of a flat and at the same time voluminous design, and immediately recognize it as something that is part of the Google ecosystem. Whether it's the Android operating system, the Google Chrome browser, or something else, the new design language ties them together. In addition to everything, it is worth noting that people starting to use products with Material Design are more likely to want to stick to it further and thereby use those applications that include it. The new design language will become what will be natural for them, and for Android, as a result of which it will once again win.
Looking ahead, I want to say that a long and fascinating road is open before the Android operating system, and since we are watching the success of Google’s creations, we need to see how the green robot grows further - we may be able to see even those things that we might not have expected. While you can only fold your arms, relax, enjoy the development of the Android operating system and actively comment on this material. What do you think about the future of Android, what will it be, is it waiting for its success or failure, and what previously unknown things will we probably see?
