Google recently announced the Android 13 Go edition, built for low-end smartphones. In addition to new features that are tailored to the needs of Go users, this update also brings some of the key features of Android 13, such as notification permissions, app language preferences, and more. The tech giant announced in a blog post that new Android 13 (Go edition) devices are expected to arrive in 2023.
For the uninitiated, Google first introduced the Go edition five years ago in 2017. There are now more than 250 million monthly active devices powered by Android Go, Google says.
New features of Android 13 Go edition
Google introduced some first-ever add-ons with the new Go edition software. The new version brings Material You to Android Go for the first time. This means that owners of entry-level Android phones will be able to customize their phone’s color scheme to match the wallpaper. “When you set a wallpaper image, you’ll see four matching color schemes to choose from,” the blog post says.
In addition, users will be able to add dynamic coloring to their phone’s home screen. Android (Go edition) has built-in intelligence to help you get more out of your phone. The release of Android 13 Go edition brings the Discover feature to entry-level phones, allowing users to swipe right from the home screen to view a list of articles and other content.
Google has added a significant method to keep Android Go devices up to date. It added Google Play system updates to the latest mini software, which helps ensure that devices can receive important software updates regularly, outside of the main Android releases. This will make delivering important updates quick and easy without compromising the availability of storage on the device.
Although Google has not published the list of phones that will get Android 13 Go edition. But it’s likely that some of the existing Android Go phones will be eligible for the new software. This may include Samsung Galaxy M13 5G, Samsung Galaxy A10 series, Samsung Galaxy A03 Core, Vivo Y series, Nokia C21 series and some Redmi phones.
