Google Is Going To Oblige Phone Makers to Offer Security Updates. Google is legitimately obligating phone makers to provide smartphones with software updates.
Android security chief Dave Kleidermacher told this during an explanation on development conference Google I/O.
“We are working on making security updates part of our agreements with phone makers,” says Kleidermacher.
“As a result, many more phones will receive regular security updates over time.”
Google has been trying to speed up the update process for Android phones.
The company makes monthly security updates available, but the phone makers must offer these to users.
Last year the tech giant started with Project Treble, where security updates can be implemented faster by manufacturers.
