Android operating system is the most popular around the world, who is ruling the smart phone market right now in the world one of the major complaints about the OS is the slower rollout of updates.
To address those subjects, Google had presented Project Mainline and with the upcoming Android 12, Google is working on giving a big development to the OS upgrades.
It is being reported that the company is revolving Android Runtime (ART) into a principal module, which could permit pushing updates to key system components through the Play Store.
Android Runtime translates an Android app’s byte code into native machine instructions.
With the said change, if Google wanted to change how the OS translated code, it could just send the tweaks through Play Store instead of waiting for a newer version of Android update, thus helping users get functionality improvement or a security fix much quicker.
Though this new change won’t fix most of the issues with the Android update rollout, it could make a big difference when it comes to addressing zero day activities with fixes much faster than the conventionally scheduled security patches.
