Back at CES 2016 in January, a company called Jide announced that its operating system, called Remix, would be available for all devices, not just its own proprietary devices. The company then released its Remix OS as an alpha release, which is pre-beta. Remix gave PCs and Macs an Android operating system, except specifically made for a desktop experience. Today, Remix OS entered the beta stage and offers an over-the-air (OTA) installation, which means you don’t have to perform a clean install every time you want to update.
- Over-the-air installation
- 32-bit hardware support
- UEFI compatible with dual-boot functionality
- More compatible devices
- 50 bugs fixed
It’s important to note that the Google Play Store and Services still aren’t included by default, although Google is in the process to fix that. Google Play Services can still be sideloaded, though. Jide is also collaborating with the Android-x86 project to have Remix run on x86 hardware.
