Android 12 Go Edition to Make low-cost Smartphones Faster, More Efficient

Google has announced Android 12 Go Edition, which will be available on more devices as Android 12 becomes more widely available. According to the company, when it arrives in 2022, the OS for low-cost phones will make your device up to 30% faster. This is in addition to the 20% improvement Google achieved previously with Android 11 Go Edition. The launch animations have also been smoothed out, according to the company.

If storage is a concern, a new feature allows the operating system to save both battery life and storage by hibernating apps that aren’t used frequently. You can also use Files Go to securely delete something and then recover it after 30 days.


Meanwhile, a new Nearby Share update allows you to save data by transferring apps between devices. Separately, if you ever need to translate a webpage, you can do so quickly with the help of a newly added shortcut found on the recent apps interface.

In addition to performance improvements, Android 12 Go Edition emphasizes privacy enhancements. The privacy dashboard in Android 12 is making the jump to Go Edition. You can use it to review all of the permissions that your apps have and revoke them as necessary. In addition, new privacy indicators in the status bar will let you know if your phone’s microphone or camera is active. The update will also allow you to restrict apps to only accessing your approximate location rather than your exact location. And, if you ever need to give someone access to your device, you can now create a temporary guest account directly from the lock screen. When they’re finished, Android Go Edition 12 will automatically reset your phone.

Google also revealed today that more than 200 million people worldwide use an Android Go Edition device on a daily basis. When you consider Go Edition has only been around since 2017, that’s not bad.
