wherever it's needed
With smaller app sizes, more storage space, and way more control over how your content is stored, it’s easy to see the ways Android 9 (Go edition) helps you save.
More storage out of the box
With fewer pre-installed and much lighter apps you get 2x more available storage out of the box. Storage issues, solved.
Built to use less
Brand new apps designed for lighter updates and downloads help create more space while significantly improving performance. That’s what we call a win, win.
File management app by Google to clean up and free up space with smart suggestions. It helps to find files faster by using filters instead of folders and share files offline at really fast speeds.GO GET IT
By building a fast, smooth smartphone experience with enhanced apps (and a few new ones), you can email, get answers, find directions, and play games faster than ever.
Gallery Go is a light, fast, and offline gallery optimized for your phone. Your photos will look great with one-tap editing, and you will easily be able to find that photo you’re looking for with automatic organization.*
Built from the ground up for new smartphone owners just discovering the web, Google Go makes it easy to find popular queries, top websites and apps, trending images and gifs at blazing speed, with minimal typing.
Google Assistant Go
For the first time ever, Google Assistant is available on smartphones with 1GB or less of memory. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s lighter, faster, and always ready to help.
Everything that makes a keyboard useful, built right in. Autocorrect, voice typing and multilingual typing help you communicate more easily. When it’s time for more fun, say it with GIFs, Emoji, or choose one of our 220 languages—the most variety of any other keyboard.
Data that has your back
With a built-in data manager and more options to help you save, there are now more ways than ever to stay in control of your data. Because data is meant to be enjoyed, not just used.
Manage which apps get to use your data and when, it’s like having your own sidekick, but for data.
Share your favorite content from anywhere. Laugh, play, and send videos using Files without impacting your data.
Security that never sleeps
Entry-level smartphones now have the same key security features as Android 9. And every Android smartphone comes with Google Play Protect, built-in mobile security that keeps your apps and data safe, 24/7.
Over 2 billion devices scanned daily
Around the clock scans keep your smartphone protected, and the scans are optimized for low data use so they don't waste your data.
Find My Device features built-in
If your device is lost or stolen, you can track it down, set a passcode or wipe it clean just by signing into your Google account from another device.
It's Go time
We teamed up with app developers to bring a brand new and equally reliable suite of apps to the forefront of your smartphone.
