Google now only wants Android Things on certain ‘things’
Google is scaling back its ambitions for Android Things with the announcement it will “refocus” the platform on just two device types.
Android Things, once known as ‘Project Brillo’, was first announced in 2016. The platform was designed to be an OS for all manner of ‘things’ in the fast-growing IoT (Internet of Things) market.
Given the success Google has found with smart displays and speakers, the firm has decided to focus its efforts on these products.
