Another huge move by Google that made the audience completely lose it was the announcement that they will soon be working with carriers around the USA and the UK to create guidelines for device updates. So why does that matter? Why should you care? This means that you’ll now be able to KNOW what if your device will be getting updates in the future, instead of having to guess when the newest Android version will be coming to you, or even if it will before the end of the device’s lifespan. In other words, this is basically the best news ever!

Each new device, according to Google, will not get the newest update until 18 months after their release, and depending on if their hardware will allow it. What this means is that devices will not be left in the dark any longer after when they’ve only been out for a small amount of time. This has been a problem for Android device users in the past and this change is going to give support to Android users in the future. Android is stepping up!

Keep your eyes peeled to both Android Community and our sister site SlashGear for all the I/O announcements you can handle! Check out our Google I/O portal and hold onto your hats because this is only be beginning!
