Create an Android Things Product

Before you begin

Gather the following information:

Create a new product

To create your product:

  1. Open the Android Things Console.

  2. If the Welcome page appears, sign in, agree to the terms of service, and click Continue.

    Sign in with the Google account that you want to associate with your Android Things product.

    The Android Things Product page appears. It lists the Android Things products associated with this Google account, if any. For new users, the Android Things Product page is empty.

  3. Click CREATE A PRODUCT.

    Create new product

    The Create new product dialog appears.

  4. Type the product name for your product.

    This is an internal name that users won't see. Collaborating developers can use this name before deciding on the actual product name. You can change the name at any time after project creation.

  5. Select your hardware platform from the SOM type list.

  6. (Optional) Select the checkbox to include Google Play Services.

    Google Play Services is the set of Google-specific services and APIs that multiple Android apps may depend on, but that are not part of the open-source Android platform.

  7. Enter the required OEM partition size.

  8. (Optional) Type a description of your product.

    You can change this later, if needed.

  9. Click CREATE.

Delete an existing product

If you delete a product, the product information is deleted. Deletions cannot be reverted.

After deletion, devices flashed from that product will no longer receive updates.

To delete a product:

  1. Open the Android Things Console.

  2. Find the product in the list. Do either of the following:

    • Point to the product name with the mouse. Click the trash can icon that appears.
    • Select the product. Click the trash can icon near the upper right of the screen.
  3. In the Delete Product dialog, click Delete.
