Google spotted making a major push for seamless updates across Android


What you need to know

  • Google may be removing support for non-A/B updates.
  • This would mean seamless updates are the only officially supported OTA update method.
  • Some device makers may still seek to use conventional updates.

Seamless updates (also known as A/B updates) have been a feature on Android devices since 2016, but while the convenience of this over-the-air (OTA) update method comes with several advantages, not all device manufacturers have been keen to adopt it. Now, reports are suggesting that Google is preparing to remove support for non-A/B updates, meaning it will likely come to more devices.

As noted by Android expert Mishaal Rahman, a comment in AOSP points to the removal of support for non-A/B updates. If true, this would mean seamless updates would become the only officially supported OTA update mechanism.
