"Android Things" the Google operating system for IoT devices

AndroidΗ Google tries to catch the attention of consumers with the release of Android Things 1.0 - an operating system, specially designed for appliances Internet of Things (IoT).

Android Things first announced 2016. It will allow developers to take advantage of Google Assistant, Google Cast, and the engineering knowledge that the company offers.

The platform will use the company's back-end infrastructure to get software updates, developer APIs and support for certified hardware. The list of supported platforms includes System-on-Modules (SoMs) based on the Qualcomm SDA212, Qualcomm SDA624, NXP i.MX8M, and MediaTek hardware platforms.

Google has promised to offer long-term support by promoting stability and security updates for three years. The platform can work on a variety of devices such as LG's upcoming smart speakers and iHome, as well as the smart screens of Lenovo, LG and JBL, etc.

However, it does not appear to be restricted to typical consumer devices. There are other fields in which the platform may seem useful. For example, Mirego uses Android Things to feed images into giant screens for public places. The Byteflies, on the other hand, are a large docking station that safely transmits health data from wearables to the cloud.
