Announcing updates to Google’s Internet of Things platform: Android Things and Weave

The Internet of Things (IoT) will bring computing to a whole new range of devices. Today we’re announcing two important updates to our IoT developer platform to make it faster and easier for you to create these smart, connected products. We’re releasing a Developer Preview of Android Things, a comprehensive way to build IoT products with the power of Android, one of the world’s most supported operating systems. Now any Android developer can quickly build a smart device using Android APIs and Google services, while staying highly secure with updates direct from Google. We incorporated the feedback from Project Brillo to include familiar tools such as Android Studio, the Android Software Development Kit (SDK), Google Play Services, and Google Cloud Platform. And in the coming months, we will provide Developer Preview updates to bring you the infrastructure for securely pushing regular OS patches, security fixes, and your own updates, as well as built-in Weave connectivity and more.”
