Google released the 1.0 version of its internet of things operating system Android Things. Part of the new release is support for new hardware from different manufacturers.
Google presented its Android Things platform at the end of 2016 and has since had eight developer previews released. It states that the latter has now been downloaded more than 100,000 times. The search giant claims that performing automatic updates is one of the key features of Android Things. This is therefore automatically enabled on devices. That way they are always provided with the latest security updates.
Google says to have worked with manufacturers of various devices that came out of the system, such as smart speakers from LG and smart displays from Lenovo, LG and JBL.
