Android Oreo Go Edition
Tailored for devices with 1 GB RAM or less, Android Oreo Go Edition comes with a new range of apps from Google designed to run faster while consuming less data.
Optimised to be smooth and fast, these include Google Go – a web search app, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go and Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), to quickly send messages, make calls, set alarms and do more, simply by using your voice.
