What is the Difference Between Android and Android Go Edition?

Android Go, officially Android (Go Edition), is a scaled-down version of the Android operating system, designed for low-end and ultra-budget smartphones. It is designed to provide an ultra-fast experience on devices with less than 2 GB of RAM and was first made available for Android Oreo. Android Go apps are lightweight versions of regular Google apps, consuming at least 50% less memory than their regular counterparts. The Android Go edition is the best possible alternative to a dedicated business device with minimal specifications and capabilities.

It offers lightweight performance on devices with low RAM and storage, and all the core applications are designed to make better use of resources while providing the same Android experience. Android Go is geo-restricted and not available in the US, although Google itself announces that it is available “worldwide”. OEMs have to pay Google to provide them with the Android One operating system and services such as 2 years of software updates and 3 years of monthly patches and security updates. With Android Go, pre-installed or ready-to-use apps will also take up less space than regular apps.

Android 12 (Go edition) will give users more transparency in terms of the applications that access their data and more controls to decide how much private information their applications can access.
