Android is overwhelmingly the most popular operating system in smartphones. Only this popularity just means the endless confusion that customers will add to. And Google intended to continue in this confusion, last year it would say something completely different.
Last year, at the end of June, Google presented a tasting of the new version of Android. It was intended for development, it was very awkward and it was marked Android L, later Android Lollipop emerged from it. The upcoming release of the upcoming version of Google explained that it wants to make the development of mobile phone manufacturers and manufacturers as good as possible, so that following its official launch, the news can quickly get into all new smartphones and that users of existing ones will receive an update to the new system soon. .
Reality? Today, more than 10 months after the launch of the development version and seven months after the official introduction of the Lollipop version, only 9.7% of Android smartphones have this version of the system. And Google is fulfilling how this time in the twist of May the world revealed a new version to the world, it will be marked with the letter M.
The I / O conference will take place on May 27-29. And while Marsmallow, Moon Pie, Milky Way, M & Ms, and in any other way, will eventually be named for the Android M urn, it is certain that it will not bring unity to the Android world.
While Google was preparing a version of Android, which users will not be able to use for a long time on their smartphone (officially it will be introduced in the fall), the current version of Apple iOS 8 m about 84% iPhone. Well, not the latest version of Android together. KitKat has about 39.8% equipment and Jelly Bean stle b on more than aunt’s model (33.7%). It’s a huge disgrace for Google and the Android phone manufacturer.
Despite the fact that most users do not really care what version of the system their smartphone uses. In fact, few of them have it at all. Only first, that’s why Google should do it to get the latest Android to these users as soon as possible. Instead of constantly preparing new versions, Google should figure out how to get the current version of the system to as many user groups as possible.
The reason is a whole range, from security to wide support of applications and new user functions and to the end. There will always be a group of users who, regardless of the reasons, will want the best and the latest. Typically, these are the ones who buy the smartest smartphones, which then compete for the prestige with the iPhone. Even with them, updates to the new system are often not as fast.
With a unified moont of Android updates would be easy around the system. They should be yours. And then, paradoxically, Google could re-accelerate the development of the system itself and pinch real innovations for all. Of course, the manufacturers, who, on the contrary, are now stubborn today on Android according to their ideas, should also help him in this direction. But it must be Google who sets the rules and says what he wants. Android in the form in which it is known to us by the user, because it is still not the open-source system for which many have it.
Users could only think of this approach, even if it is possible that some Europeans would try to blink.
