The Android Things console is no longer accepting new projects, and will be turned down for all existing projects on January 5, 2022. For more details, visit the FAQ page.

Configure an Android Things product

The product page in the Android Things Console allows you to change the product settings, create different models of your product, and share products with other Android Things Console users.

If you are not already on this page, open the Android Things Console and click a product you previously created.

Create models

With the Android Things Console, you can create multiple models of the same product. You can use models to create variants of application builds that all run on the same underlying hardware.

When you create a new product, the Android Things Console automatically creates a unique model identifier under Models. Click the ellipse next to this ID to change it. To add another model, click ADD A MODEL.

Change the product settings

Under Product settings, you can edit the product name or product description, if desired. If you do, make sure to click SAVE CHANGES.

Share products

To share your product with other Android Things Console users, click ADD MORE PEOPLE under Sharing.

To share your product with a Google Group, enter the group email address. Members of the group can then access your product according to the access rights you set.

If you are a member of a group and would like to remove a shared product from your list, ask the group administrator to remove you from the group.

What's next

The next step is to create a device build for a specific model. Click a model at the top of the screen.
