Google's solution to this problem is the "Android Enterprise Recommended" program, which defines which Android devices are ideal for business use. The scheme is another indication of Google's growing frustration with the fragmentation of Android. He stated that they were working with 43 carriers and device manufacturers to bring RCS native messaging to every Android user. The Go smartphones will also come with optimised Go-branded Google apps such as Gmail Go, YouTube Go, Google Go, Assistant (Go edition), Maps Go and Files Go.

Google itself has no direct control over third-party product specifications, the Android versions installed in the systems and the frequency with which the operating system is updated or patched.

Back in December of past year, Google officially took the wraps off what it called Android Oreo (Go edition), which is designed for devices with a minimal amount of RAM and built-in storage. At launch, several popular devices are supported.

"The Nokia 8's incredible battery life, flagship performance and pure, secure and up-to-date Android experience, with security updates every thirty days, make it a great device for enterprise users".

OEMs in the program receive an enhanced level of technical support and training from Google, the firm said. We post an updated chart with each month's refreshed Android distribution numbers and they show that since Jelly Bean topped out at just over 60% of the pie and KitKat reached 40%, that it's been all down hill.

The event will also witness the release of a few more Android One devices.

Recommended program requirements will be updated with each Android platform version, Google has noted. Google said it's committed to making Android more inviting to enterprises, claiming it wants to "add confidence" to IT departments.

Among the devices highlighted by the new program are Google's own Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL offerings, but the list also includes the Huawei Mate 10 and P10, BlackBerry KeyOne and Motion, LG V30, Sony Xperia X, and the Nokia 8.
