You would get used to the interfaces you saw for Android Auto, Wear and TV at the Google I/O conference this previous week – you’re going to be seeing them more. Google tells Ars Technica that it will keep up sole (authority) control over the interface for each of the three new platforms, as not giving power to manufacturers. While companies will be permitted branding and additional services, they won’t get to change the core experience. You won’t see a Gear Live continuation with the Gear 2’s front end, for instance, or find your path around town with a Honda-select tackle Android Auto.
Engineering director chief David Burke says this requirement is intended to give an “very consistent” experience; you won’t need to have a different controls to watch TV on bedroom instead on living room. The shift in policy also lets Google deal with the redesign process, which should be as “automatic and seamless” as the organization’s Chrome browser. Theoretically, you won’t see the haphazard upgrade process regular to non-Nexus Android gadgets, where updates somecases arrive months after their official dispatch, in the event they unveiling their developments.
The move is prone to please enthusiasts of Google’s methodology to interface design, or those who want to try new features as quickly as possible. However, its a sharp break from Google’s most part free enterprise state of mind to Android on phones and tablets – auto, TV and wearable producers will basically need to separate themselves through hardware if they need to utilize the full features of Google’s services. If they demand their own control formats, they’ll need to take an Amazon-like approach and assemble (or built) replacement technology. The method likely won’t block you from loading custom software after the sale, yet the Android you see in stores won’t be quite as diverse as it once was.
