Android stuff, Google's Android version, named after its focus on the Internet of Things (IoT), is no longer focused on DI. The announcement in the Android Creator Diary has announced that "given the success we have seen with our partners in smart speakers and smart screens, we are reorienting Android as a platform for OEMs to build devices in the categories that go ahead. "
At first, the Android stuff was an Android version of Google subtracted from anything less than a smartphone or smartwatch. The goal was for the OS to be the Android version of IoT, not" skinnable "open source Android version on phones, Android stuffs are" managed platform "- OS disabled with centralized Google-controlled update system. Like Windows, manufacturers load the unbroken version of the OS and limit themselves to the software package app Today, legions of IoT devices work from random operating systems that basically have no plans to keep up with security gaps and result in a safe nightmare. The wider Android ecosystem doesn't have a good reputation for security, but Android stuff updates is fully managed by Google's centralized update system, and like the Pixel phone, Things are working on events would have been one of the largest available and safe devices
Seeing Android items is now very strange. The OS just went through a long initial development cycle (initially, Android items started as a Project Brillo rebrand), which only hit version 1.0 nine months ago. The first consumer products with Android items, third-party smart screens, such as Lenovo Smart Display, were only launched in July.
Android stuff still needs smartphone class hardware
A strong line of speculation would be that Android items are too heavy for smaller IoT devices. Google has never installed a device with Android items. He has developed a smart screen, although Google's headquarters, but instead of using an intelligent Android-based smart display platform, it has made efforts for third parties, Google used the Google Cast platform based OS – the same operating system that enables Chromecast. The user software is still the same as third-party smart screens, so there is no difference from the user's perspective, but Home Hub uses Google's smart screen software with lower specifications and a lower price point than any Android thing  Intrinsyc Open-Q 212A SOM. It's about 2 inches square with Snapdragon 212 on board.
Android gadgets still have a promise to support low-end hardware. Google officially supported several System on Module (SoM) boards – small, bare-board ARMs on Raspberry Pi lines, but they all used smart phone data and the lowest "System on Module" (SoM) The motherboard was a Snapdragon 212 processor with 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of memory. It is hardly suitable for many smaller, battery-powered IoT devices that you will see as a smart home setting.
Android stuff across Google completes all public support for the three SoM boards, which were initially free for three years on Google. While major manufacturers may still be able to collaborate with Google, Android support for the general public is now limited to "experimental" non-commercial devices using Raspberry Pi 3B or NXP i.MX7D. For commercial devices, this is only about speakers and screens.
Google Other IoT Projects
Google states that "it will continue to be used to manage the platform for IoT devices, including the tools on the work platform. Google Never Creates Anyone, Remember
Last month, CES has released a Google Assistant Connect review called "Device Manufacturers Platform to enable Google Assistant to access their products in an affordable and easy way" . "Google has not provided any information about the operating system or hardware that Assistant Connect is working on, and so far has been very vague about the whole project.
One of the things Google said about Assistant Connect is that these devices will require a smart home speaker from Google for your network, and an assistant to connect to a "higher level computing" to the connected smart speaker. The slave device then sends Google an email. An example of an ink screen showing air or calendar information can be very cheap because the speaker is used as a brain. All of this we know about Assistant Connect so far, but it really sounds like a lower-end solution than Android Things. Google's one blog post about the project ends, saying, "We need to share more about Assistant Connect and how device developers can access technology later this year."
As mentioned earlier, there is also a Google Cast platform that enables Google Home Hub. It was a real shock to hear that Google created a smart display platform for third parties (Android items) and then did not use it in its product. And while it certainly seemed suspicious, retrospectively, this is a clear sign that Android items didn't work as Google expected. Home Hub was the first to hear about the Google Cast platform used on a non-Chromecast device. Google never explained which OS was on the first Google Speaker, and, depending on how closely it is related to Chromecast, wonder if the first Chromecast on Google Cast platform started before 2016
In the long run, there is also Google's experimental Fuchsia operating system. The project is usually fun as an Android-replacing smartphone, but it has already been privately transferred to Google's headquarters within Google. A report published last year by Bloomberg stated that Fuchsia was in 2021. Applying smart speakers to the consumer, Fuchsia has further strengthened Google's Android competition to compete.
