Back in 2014, the Mountain View company Google launched the Android One program. Under this program, the company made smartphones for various brands and Google wished to offer pure Android to the users. That said, with Android One the company offered two years of guaranteed updates for the major Android versions. Not only that, but the company also promised to give three years of security updates as well. However, now it seems that the company is no longer to give guarantee updates to the devices which are under the Android One program.
Until now, the official Android One website clearly mentioned that devices which are a part of the Android One program will receive “at least two years of OS upgrades to the latest version of Android”. But now, the company has removed this bit about two years of guaranteed Android version updates from its website. And the website now only mentions the monthly security updates for three years from the release of the device. Well, this indicates that the company may be thinking to don’t give any guarantee for the rolling out of the major Android updates for the next two years from the initial release of an Android One smartphone.
Having said that, if Google is serious to stop give the guaranteed updates then it will be very bad news for all the Android lovers because people prefer to buy Android One smartphones. Because they wish to have the pure Android version in their device and it is also one of the major factors to sell a smartphone which is under the program of Android One. We believe that the company will not take such kind of decisions and we have to wait for the official announcement.
