Google's Android Things IoT platform comes out of beta

Here's why Android P smartphones will be more secure

This release arrives ahead of Google's annual developer conference tomorrow, and follows mixed results with Android offshoots for cars, smartwatches, and televisions.

A late 2018 ship date also gives time for Google to woo app developers to support the new "Watch Next" feature, which is the main reason why Nvidia hasn't updates its Shield TV to Oreo. With the launch of Android Things 1.0, we're now at the point where the platform is ready for production devices, like Smart Displays. That should remove the need for the constant navigation bar at the very bottom of the display, allowing apps to take up more space for an immersive experience on bezel-less smartphones. In the near future, Auto will better handle that, as well as having full support for RCS messaging, all tieing into the Google Assistant.

Arete Research analyst Richard Kramer, on Android's prior successes in branching out: "If you're charitable, you say it's early".

Android Automotive is not yet deeply embedded in any cars. Past year at I/O, we saw Android Automotive's debut, a phone-less version of Android Auto for specific cars, and now, we're getting more details on that, as well as a slight revamp for Android Auto itself.

The JBL Link Bar will have a demo session at Google I/O 2018 in the Android Sandbox.

Google officials said the spinoffs have gained momentum.

Soundbars are incredibly popular for people who want to inexpensively upgrade from their TV's built-in speakers but can't go all-in with a multi-speaker surround system, and now there's a soundbar that can provide more than just a sound upgrade. However, Android Things isn't meant to specifically launch more Google ecosystem devices or even be an Android accessory.

Android variants thrive in China, where Google does not operate.

Android Things competes with Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O) Greengrass system and Microsoft's (MSFT.O) Windows IoT. There will be regular security updates, too. The development comes less than three weeks after the company released the eighth (and now confirmed as final) developer preview of the solution, with Google stating Android Things is now ready to be used for building commercial Internet of Things products and will be supported as such.
