A key and often a vexatious factor with the Android devices is the need to constantly upgrade the software in use. This from being just irritating can be the main source of corrupt data and of crashing apps, most of the time.
A lot of people have often wondered if things could not be as smooth as the iOS users that rarely complain of a system crash at any time. So a practical approach that would serve the needs of the user public as well as keep the Android devices running without a break are what prompted Google to come up with Project Treble.
What is known as Project Treble?
It is better to know what the Project Treble seeks to do than to find out what the whole exercise is all about. Primarily, the need to find software updates is being made redundant with the new concept that allows most of the OEM developers to bring out an update as and when the need arises and not wait for any sort of prompting.
With Project Treble, the developer is closer to the end user of an app and thus is in a better situation than earlier. There would be little by way of layers of separation which could cloud the developer from the user of an app. It would be naturally a more responsive system to have around most of the time too.
Would the new set up make a difference?
As to the actual difference that the development could make could be too early to call, as the final effectiveness of any program is in its implementation. It must be said of the approach adopted by Google, that it is aimed to be one of the most responsive to have come out of the think tanks at the firm.
Success cannot be measured in the improved speeds of operation alone but in the overall improved user experience that the Project Treble seeks to establish at best.
