Google intros Android Oreo (Go edition) for entry-level phones”

Well apart from that, Google announced the Files Go storage manager app and Android Oreo (Go Edition) for entry-level devices. Google on Tuesday formally launched the free Files Go app, which in addition to having the usual functions of space and file management apps, also culls out all "good morning" messages on an Android device, so that a user can delete them en masse. Google says that the Android Oreo Go edition will offer benefits like 30 percent faster startup time and storage space optimisation by up to 2X.

The Google Go app is just 5 MB in size and relies on tap-first UI which lets users navigate around by typing less and tapping more. The app has been custom built for Go edition devices. The Google Go will power the search on the devices powered by Oreo (Go Edition). Notably, those Android devices with 1GB RAM or less running Android 8.1 Oreo will come with Android Go OS configuration.

Introducing the upcoming Bill Pay feature in Tez, Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users shared that Google's India-first mobile payments app Tez, now at 12M users, will start offering a customized experience to pay bills from within the app. Tez will remind users when a bill is due, and users will never pay the same bill twice as the status will be automatically updated.

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.
