Android 13 Go Edition for low-end phones revealed

Now if you’re probably thinking about buying a cheapo phone for the Android 13 Stock experience, well we can’t blame you…

Google has returned with a new version of Android 13 that was created exclusively with low-end phones in mind following the release of Android 13 in August. They introduced Android 13 (Go edition) specifically for these phones.

Despite the Go edition concept being five years old, there are already over 250 million monthly active devices running some variation of Android Go, including those with low-end SoCs, little RAM, and limited storage.

Reliability, convenience, and personalization are the main priorities of Android 13 (Go version). With this upgrade, Google Play System Changes are accessible for Go devices, enabling phones to get significant software updates outside of a significant Android release.

On several skins of Android, the Google Discover feed may be seen to the left of your leftmost home screen. It is now available on Go edition smartphones. The Material You design language, which had previously only been available on Android smartphones that weren’t Go editions, is also debuting.

With it, your phone’s entire color scheme is dependent on the aesthetics of your wallpaper. Although you have a choice of four color schemes when setting a wallpaper, it is not automated.

Additionally, some important features from Android 13—like notification permissions and app language preferences—are also available in the Go edition. According to Google, new devices running Android 13 (Go edition) need to be available by 2023.
