Android Things is a managed OS built for IoT manufacturers that streamlines production time and costs by building development on top of tried-and-true tools like the Android SDK. Products built on the platform also benefit from regular stability and security patches that are automatically provided and enabled by default, which Google provides freely for three years. Developers can push software updates to 100 devices without cost, allowing them to build and test their IoT device before they need to sign a distribution agreement with Google.
