Google Android 13 Go version released

Following the release of Android 13 in August this year, Google has now launched an Android 13 Go version system specifically for low-end mobile phones. 

The Android Go version is a five-year-old concept, with more than 250 million monthly active devices running some form of Android Go on low-end chips with limited memory and storage.

Android 13 (Go version) focuses on reliability, usability, and customization. Starting with this release, Google Play system updates are available for Go devices, enabling phones to receive important software updates outside of the main Android release.

On Android, users can find the Google Discovery feed on the left side of the home screen, which will now debut on Go edition devices. Also launching is the Material You design language, which was previously limited to non-Go Android devices but is now being rolled out to Go devices.

Users can design the entire color scheme of the phone based on the wallpaper. However, this is not automatic - when the user sets the wallpaper, they are given four color schemes for the system to choose from.

Additionally, some key features introduced in Android 13 will also make their way to the Go version, such as notification permissions and app language preferences. Google says new devices running Android 13 (Go edition) will be released and available in 2023.
