Android updates are the great unknown that 90% of users do not get to enjoy throughout the life of your terminal. Google wants to end this, and is that the fragmentation is reaching an almost unsustainable point . For this reason, it has launched projects such as Treble, and different collaborations with different OEMs to speed up the process.
If a few days ago we could see how, today we have news that Google wants to change the refresh rate to security patches . However, as always, there is a problem that prevents this from being carried out at all .
From here, our most sincere congratulations to OnePlus, Essential, Nokia, Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo, the only companies that have deigned to collaborate directly with Google , being able to install the beta version of Android in its flagships., the big G has several programs for manufacturers to join, and can thus obtain facilities when updating their devices, yes, as long as they meet the deadlines imposed by Google .
Now, we have news that Google will start putting dates for security patches , in an attempt that the OEMs that collaborate in their programs have their terminals correctly updated. A pretty good idea, subject to the usual problem: the non-obligation to join the programs or certain deadlines if there is no intention to update on time.
It is not understandable that some of the biggest brands in the world can not install the beta , do not make the threat to collaborate with Google, offering updates with up to 7 months of delay , once the latest version of Android is presented. From here, we congratulate Google for its titanic effort to end fragmentation, and we encourage OEMs to collaborate with it to improve user experience and user safety.
