Google just launched a new version of Android for low-budget phones

Well apart from that, Google announced the Files Go storage manager app and Android Oreo (Go Edition) for entry-level devices.

Google also announced that Files Go will be offered as a part of suite of apps on the upcoming Android Oreo (Go edition) phones scheduled for sale in early 2018.

The Google Go app is a lightweight version of the Google search app, and, is optimized to work fast on entry-level devices and on spotty connections.

Android Go was first showed off by Google at this year's Google I/O developer conference.

Google's new lightweight Android: Oreo Go is out now, so who's it aimed at?

Google launched the less hardware intensive Android Go for low-end devices though it remains if it becomes popular enough given the relative affordability of Android devices already. The Google Go app has a trending section and it also offers smart suggestions to the users so that they can search faster. The app allows one to see how much free space is left on the phone and the SD card and can easily transfer files to SD card to free up the phone storage, right from the app.

Google has also thought of helping you save data, by baking in features that block background data usage across apps or tools such as Data Saver in Chrome.

Launching another India first product, Two-Wheeler Mode in Google Maps, Martha Welsh, Director Google Maps said, "India is the world's largest two-wheeler market and the navigation needs of these millions of riders are different from automobile drivers". The Go Edition also features the new file-management app, Files Go, which makes recommendations like removing duplicate images or unused apps to help save space on your device.

During a trial in the Philippines, users saved up to 30% of their data, Google said. The new customized Go app is said to consume 40 percent less data. First, typing on a small device can be slow and cumbersome, and people may not know what to look for online, so Google Go's tap-first user interface helps users express themselves, explore new ideas, find things to share and guide them around the web. Now, Google's Files Go is now available globally at Google Play. Files Go was built from scratch for Go edition devices, and today the official version launched on the Google Play Store. This special version of the Google Assistant in both English and Hindi will appear on the new Reliance JioPhones. However, that is not all that Google announced.
