first_imgAndroid Go is just Android, or, to be more exact, Android O. It isn’t a distinct version of Android like, say Android Wear or Android TV, and not even a “custom ROM” of Android, like, a TouchWiz or an EMUI. It is, instead, a configuration that OEMs can use when building smartphones with 1 GB of RAM or less. It’s a configuration that just happens to disable some resource-wasting features, pre-installs more resource-friendly versions of certain Google apps, and highlights third-party apps with a similar bent.This is distinctly different from Android One and there might even be a time when the two paths cross in the near future. Android One reflected more the Nexus program, with Google recommending a certain set of hardware, putting a vanilla Android experience on top, and promising a certain period of updates. Initially, those hardware requirements were locked down to low to mid tier components but Google eventually relented and removed those limits. Still, it probably won’t be impossible to see an Android One device with low enough specs to warrant running Android Go.Since Android Go isn’t a different version of Android, there is no fragmentation to worry about. At least that’s the theory. Android Go is Android O, so developers need not really write a different version of an app. In fact, Samat even implies it could help fix the problem of fragmentation, since developers will be able to target low-end devices without having to worry that those devices are forced to run older versions of Android. And since it’s Android O anyway, any device running Android Go will be able to install any regular Android app, even the full versions of apps like YouTube, but at their own expense.Google is confident that by the time Android Go phones launch next year, there will still be a sizeable market of very low-end phones, despite the bottom line these days rising to 2 GB of RAM. It won’t be making Android Go available for existing or higher end devices, however. But, since this is Android and open source, it will only be a matter of time before some other developers make that a thing.VIA: NDTV It’s not that hard to compare the recently announced Android Go with the more or less dead Android One initiative and conclude that the former replaces the latter. After all, both target entry-level devices which are most likely going to litter emerging markets. Considering the Android Go presentation was direct to the point but short on the details, that conclusion is easier reached. But in a post-I/O interview with NDTV, Google VP of Product Management for Android and Google Play Sameer Samat makes it pretty clear. No, Android Go isn’t replacing Android One, and, no, it isn’t a distinct version of Android either.last_img

first_imgA tidbit found within the YouTube v12.37 apk indicates that Google’s video service may be preparing to launch yet another subscription option, this one called ‘Plus.’ The subscription seemingly would be a companion to the existing YouTube Red subscription option, but details about it are slight. There doesn’t appear to be any sort of information or documentation about the subscription tier online. The reference was found during an apk teardown by Android Police, which cited two string names: YouTube Plus and YouTube Red. YouTube Red, of course, is the existing subscription option that eliminates advertisements and allows videos to play in the background. It is unclear what YouTube Plus could offer that differs; whether it will be something cheaper and more limited than Red or something greater than it.The app code does indicate that YouTube Plus will allow users to play videos in the background, which means leaving the YouTube app to do something else without the video pausing. This same feature is offered in the current YouTube Red subscription. No other info was found in the code.We can speculate that YouTube Plus may be some sort of middle ground between no subscription and YouTube Red, perhaps offering just a couple features at a lower price — perhaps background playing and offline saving, but without the YouTube Red content and with a side dish of advertisements included. It’s hard to say at this point, though.Of course, the possibility remains that there won’t ever be a YouTube Plus subscription.SOURCE: Android Policelast_img

first_imgUltimately, Tesla signed a grid connection deal with officials on September 29, at which point it was already half way through the installation of the batteries, according to Reuters. French company Neoen runs the wind farm where the Powerpack battery system is installed. Now that it is complete, testing will soon start.Battery systems like this are a vital part of transitioning regions away from coal power plants, a change taking place in South Australia and Victoria that has resulted in warnings over a thin power supply for the region’s summer season. Hot summers have resulted in power blackouts in the region, not to mention a severe storm that knocked out power for millions in South Australia last year.Officials had made it clear this past summer that it was seeking a large energy storage solution that would be able to provide individuals in the area with electricity in cases such as this. In July, Tesla had issued a statement saying that it was selected to build a 100MW / 129MWh Powerpack battery system to be used with the aforementioned Neoen wind farm.This backup battery system is going to be used as part of the region’s electrical infrastructure to help provide reliable access to electricity, as well as helping avoid power blackouts during peak hours. At the time, Tesla had said that it would complete construction of the power system in December of this year. That brings us to today’s announcement from the South Australia government revealing that the system is already complete.SOURCE: Reuters Tesla has completed its Powerpack backup battery system in Australia ahead of its December 2017 deadline, officials have announced. With its completion comes a milestone designation: it is the largest lithium-ion battery in the world, and it is located in South Australia. South Australia, which is heavily dependent on wind power, approved the construction back in July. Tesla had promised to complete the project in 100 days.last_img
