Posted November 18th, 2018 06:37:57It’s the biggest release for Android in almost two years, and Google has announced it’s bringing Android 4 to phones.
And this is not only because the OS is so much more powerful than it was a few years ago, but because Android 4 is the most important release for mobile ever.
Google is already using this to its advantage in a few ways.
For one, the Android 4 update is the only update to Android ever to not include a reboot requirement, which means it will run without any downtime and no data plan fees.
And the OS has always been capable of launching a few apps at a time, which is what we saw with the launch of Google Play Services and Google Now.
Android 4 also makes its way to the Nexus 6 and Nexus 5, making it the first Android smartphone to support Google Assistant, the voice assistant that powers Google’s other services like Gmail, YouTube, and Photos.
It’s also the first phone to support dual SIM cards, which Google says will make life easier for people with older phones who still need to buy new ones for the upgrade.
It’s a big deal for many, and we think it’s a win for Android users everywhere.
