ANDROID 12 WILL BE MUCH EASIER TO UPDATE – CAN BE UPDATED VIA PLAY STORE
With the popularity of the Google Play Store, it is quite easy for Android users to update apps. Because updating apps via the Play Store is technically a routine for some users, it feels like updating via the Play Store is even easier than the OTA updates.
Google wants to give users an easier option for Android updates. Google launched “Project Mainline” to improve the way Android updates. In Android 12, the operating system update may be easier.
XDA’s luca020400, noticed that Google is converting Android Runtime (also known as ART) into a Mainline module, making it possible to push updates to key system components through the Play Store. ART compiles the bytecode of Android applications into native machine instructions.
If Google wants to change the way that Android 12 (and future versions) compiles code, it can be adjusted at any time instead of relying on traditional operating system updates. Users don’t have to wait weeks or months for feature improvements or security fixes.
ART AS A MAINLINE MODULE WILL TACKLE THE SLOW RELEASE OF UPDATES
Nevertheless, Google may feel that this is worth the sacrifice. Android 12 can partially solve the problem of OEM manufacturers lagging behind or skipping operating system updates. Of course, there is also a big problem in improving compatibility. This still won’t solve some problems with Android updates. However, if there is a zero-day vulnerability that needs a fix before the traditional patch arrives, this new change will make a difference.
