After Android 11, Google has launched the Android 11 Go edition too and it can make downloads twenty percent faster than its previous version

Recently, Google launched Android 11 for Pixel devices and OnePlus, Oppo, Xiaomi, and Realme phones. Now, Google has launched the Android 11 Go edition too.

Android Go is a stripped-down version of Android and it was initially released in 2017. It is specially designed for smartphones that run on a low-end and an ultra-budget with RAM of 2GB or less.

Android 10 Go edition was made for devices with less than 1.5 GB of RAM, but due to various issues with that, now it seems that Android 11 Go edition will work on devices with 2GB of RAM or maybe lesser, but looks like that functionality will improve from its previous version.

Android 11 Go has some prominent features like grouped notifications from chat apps in the notification bar just like how it is in Android 11. It also grants one-time permissions to the apps for a microphone, camera, and location. Also, it is reported to have a twenty percent faster downloading speed than the Android 10 Go edition as per Google.

Another important and interesting feature in the Android 11 Go edition is the addition of a gesture-based navigation system. So, users can use gestures to swipe around the phone’s user interface. It is not known yet what gestures are included that can carry out navigation on the phone, but it surely means that this version is not only going to be lighter as compared to the regular Android 11, but it is also going to be easier to operate.

Google has told media outlets that Android 11 Go is going to come out with new phones having 2GB of RAM or less. It is probably not going to upgrade the existing 2GB phones though. So, it means that if someone has Android 10 Go, they may not be able to upgrade it to Android 11 Go as it was suggested by XDA Developers previously, but Google says that it is up to Original Equipment Manufacturers if they will provide an upgrade to the existing system or not.

Some developers think that ‘one size fit for all’ regular Android is not working for many people and Google should take Go edition more seriously and should provide more clarity around its functionality and upgrades by making it easier to port apps to.
