    Most modified versions of Android like TouchWiz or Sense perform the same fundamental things, simply with a couple of tweaks in some places. JIDE’s Remix OS is really a more complete transformation of Android targeted at which makes it much more of a desktop OS. This is an interesting approach, but the organization just required a significant take a step back using its Remix Small micro-computer by removing Google apps. Possibly more troubling, they will not explain why.

    Here’s the statement published by JIDE on its support site.

    Included in this update to Remix OS on Remix Small, Google applications (world wide web.android.com/gms) is going to be taken off the unit.

    If you opt to skip the update, you will keep together with your current Remix OS experience, including Google applications. However, you won’t be in a position to get any future updates or bug fixes OTA.

    The main reason this update removes Google applications, would be to ensure a regular experience across all Android devices for those apps. We’re dedicated to getting the ultimate Android experience, and continuously dedicate our sources to get this done.

    The Remix Small is really a small ARM-powered computer that connects to a monitor and runs Remix OS. It costs $90 with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. The Remix OS ROM for devices such as the Nexus 9 ships without Google Play services, but that is to become expected. Google does not approve software, just devices using the software. The Small initially shipped with Google Mobile Services. OEMs are meant to pass their devices with the compatibility test suite (CTS) at Google to obtain authorization to ship Google services.

    The declare that JIDE is removing GMS to “ensure a regular experience” seems like utter nonsense in my experience. It appears much more likely that JIDE shipped with GMS looking to get Google’s okay, which did not happen. It doesn’t bode well for future years of Remix OS on devices.

    Proprietors from the Remix Small who not update can get to have their Google apps, however they will not get future updates. It is possible to sideload Google services following the update, however, you really should not have to do that.

    JIDE has confirmed that Google accounts for removing Google apps. Traditional tablet devices that ship with Remix OS can continue to have GMS, but there have been difficulties with the Mini’s implementation. Google requested the organization to get rid of GMS until individuals issues were addressed.
