Despite the growing popularity of smart home devices worldwide, you probably not have heard of an Android version designed for such because the system didn’t make quite the cut since its debut in 2015.
After five years, Google decided to shut down Android Things which was supposed to be an operating system for smart products such as connected speakers, security cameras, routers, and the like.
Google’s decision also covers the Android Things Console which hosts and provides updates to connected devices. It will stop accepting future non-commercial projects by January 5, 2021. The Internet company said it has a year to shut down all related project data.
