Four years ago back in 2017, search engine giant in Google took upon itself to release an app going by the name of Google Search Lite. This particular application was then later renamed to Google Go along with the other light apps by the company. And now, this app has actually been downloaded more than 500 million times via the Google Play Store.
As far as the smartphones that run Android Go Edition, it is a known fact that the Google Go app comes pre-installed within the same. In addition to this, the application can also be installed on regular Android phones via the Google Play Store.
However, since it isn’t too popular, it is indeed the case that not all Android users could be aware of the Google Go app. This is down to the fact that Android smartphones making their way with GMS (Google Mobile Services) already ship with the regular Google app.
Hence, the possibility of most of the downloads coming in from Android Go devices is actually quite high. This of course means that Android Go smartphones are seemingly quite popular all across the globe – taking the installation figure into account.
Also, taking into consideration the fact that Google now mandates OEMs to release 2GB RAM smartphones with the Android Go Edition, we can in fact expect that the downloads of Google Go might go even higher in the coming quarters.
With that said, if you happen to find yourself in a region that has a rather slow internet connection, then the Google Go app is highly recommended. While it offers almost all the features of the regular Google app, it does so weighing in at only 8MB in size.
The app also is faster when taking into account loading results and above everything, it also consumes less data. As a result such circumstances then, you don’t actually need to worry about your data plan all too much.
