250 million phones run Google’s entry-level Android Go.

Android Go, Google’s low-cost mobile operating system, is on 250 million phones around the world.

The first version of Google’s Android Go mobile operating system for low-end smartphones came out five years ago. It is now used on more than 250 million devices.

Since December of last year, when Google announced 200 million Android Go monthly active devices, that number has increased. To mark the occasion, the search giant has also released Android 13 (Go Edition), which adds a number of advanced features to smartphone lines that are affordable.

According to the company, Google Play System Changes for Android Go devices are one of the major updates included in this release. Users will be able to get critical upgrades immediately without having to wait for device manufacturers to release them.

With this, sending out important updates is easy and won’t eat up any of the device’s storage space. The company says that the end result is a phone that will never be out of date. This means that users will never again have to wait for a new product cycle or software update from their phone’s maker to get the newest and best features.

For enhanced theming and customization options, Android 13 (Go Edition) also debuts the company’s new design language, Material You. Google’s Material You system-wide personalization feature made its debut in Android 12. If you alter the wallpaper, for instance, the system-wide color scheme adapts accordingly.

Additionally, swiping left from the home screen brings up personalized articles and content in the latest version of Android Go. Short videos and updates on your favorite teams’ games can be found in this Discover feed.

Some of Android 13’s features, like Notification Permissions and app-by-app language selection, have been rolled into the latest Go Edition update. Google has predicted that by 2023, we will see devices running Android 13 (Go Edition).

In September, Google quietly increased the minimum RAM requirement for all new and updated Android 13 devices to 2GB.

The company is also developing localized versions of Android Go to provide users with more options for personalization. The company and Indian telecom giant Jio worked together to make the JioPhone Next, a $87 smartphone that runs a modified version of Android Go. It was released last year.
