Android: New Google system updates are finally rolling out – these innovations come on all devices
For many Android users, it has become a norm that the operating system is updated multiple times per month in the background and some new functionality is also surfacing. Thanks to the ever-increasing modularity, google system updates Created, however, is unusually late in the past few weeks. Only now comes the big swing of July for many users. We’ll show you what’s included.
Google System Updates is a fresh set of updates made up of operating system components that can be updated directly from the Play Store. Previously, this was known internally as “Project Mainline” and changes were only announced in exceptional cases. But with the new name, transparency has also increased and detailed information on improvements is provided several times a month.
By the way, Google system updates are independent of Google Play Services updates and updates via Google Play Store. While system updates are actually related to the operating system itself, play services are responsible for the facility and framework. The Google Play Store updates the apps that the user uses, so it’s at the top of the three-level update pyramid now. However, most of the updates in July are about improvements to the Google Play Store.
Although the July updates were announced in three batches, the rollout is likely to be on very few devices. Only now, soon in mid-August, several users reported that they received a system update that includes the July innovations. There hasn’t been an August update yet, so there seem to be delays in this area as well. There have been a noticeable number of delays in the past few days.
