At the Google I/O event, the Mountain View based search giant unveiled its next version of Android OS namely Android L and this new version is designed taking care of the corporate needs of several entrepreneurs and even other people. In an announcement, Google confirmed that this new Android L version will take care of every needs of people helping them to use the same device for personal and use thereby segmenting the data for both of them.
However, in order to achieve this mark, Google has joined hands with Samsung where the Korean giant’s Knox security system is said to be playing major role in running the core part of Android. This will be a standard feature of Android L that will enable user keeping the personal and work data differently. This will also allow developers and Samsung Knox Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to approach to large masses of people out of the Samsung camp. Senior Vice President of KNOX Business Group at Samsung Electronics, Injong Rhee said “We are delighted with the opportunity to work with Google to help build Android’s enterprise eco-system and establish Android device as the leading choice for businesses. This represents an amazing transformation in workforce mobility.”
In addition to segmentation of data, Google will also allow companies to purchase its apps in bulk and assign them to its employees in bulk too. This feature has been brought in Android L, however Sundar Pichai is keen to bring it to earlier Android versions as well.
