Google Go app has been downloaded 500 million times. This application, intended for mobiles with limited resources, joins other Google apps that have already reached this incredible figure.
The Google offices are celebrating, one of its lightweight applications has surpassed the magnificent figure of 500 million downloads in the Google Play Store. Yes, it is one of those applications developed by the company with a specific focus on users with limited resources and slow Internet connections.
Let’s not prolong the mystery any longer, the lucky one is… Google Go! That’s right, the navigation application for the simplest cell phones has already exceeded 500 million downloads, proving that it is a success among users. But what features have catapulted this app to fame? Let’s take a look.
Google has a new application that adds to the impressive figure of 500 million downloads. It is Google Go, the lightweight browser developed for mobiles with inferior capabilities that other browsers such as Google Chrome cannot move with solvency. If we consider that in November 2019 it barely gathered 100 million downloads, we can conclude that the platform experienced significant growth in 2020.
As we see in its description in Google Play Store, Google Go is a browser to search for information in a simpler and faster way, allowing savings of up to 40% of data.
So, even if you have an advanced mobile, you can resort to this app if you want to save data from your rate when browsing without a WiFi connection. Also, as a good lightweight application that is, Google Go does not require much space on your cell phone, as its size is just 7MB.
Do not think that having this small size and being a simple navigation application in Google Go you will not find the most important functions of a browser. For example, with this app, you can perform voice searches, use Google Lens image recognition or access the Discover screen. We leave you with some screenshots so you can see the Google Go interface.
Google was released in 2017 under the name Search Lite to be part of Android Go, Google’s project to bring Android to lower-featured cell phones. If you are one of those millions of users using Google Go, we encourage you to find the Easter egg it hides and keep using the app to surf the web while saving space and memory.
