Google’s new Project Treble is set to speed up the time it takes for your phone to get access to Android O, the upcoming release that’s now confirmed for Summer.
Google’s Project Treble will actually let you experience the latest Android updates
Traditionally, if you buy a phone that’s not made by Google, you run the risk of waiting weeks, months, or even years for it to be updated to the latest and greatest operating system available.
This changes that, or so Google says, with Treble being its “biggest change yet to low-level system architecture.” In a nutshell, Google’s work here is to make it easier for manufacturers to push the new software that you so desire to your phone, cutting down on the time and money requirements that were previously necessary.
A big step forward?
Fragmentation is one of the bullet points that iPhone users frequently use to jab at Android users. And it’s a fair point.
Just ahead of Google IO 2017, it’s really encouraging to see the company rolling out big changes to its overall release cycle. Fingers crossed, but Android O could be the operating system that changes everything for Google moving forward.
