The Android ecosystem
Leverage existing Android development tools, APIs, resources, and a thriving developer community.
New APIs for IoT devices
Develop with new Android framework APIs that provide low level I/O and libraries for common components like temperature sensors, display controllers, and more.
Take advantage of regular best-in-class security updates by building on top of the Android OS.
Turnkey hardware solutions
Our certified development boards include the System on Chip (SoC), RAM, wireless radios, and more to get you started quickly.
Low barrier to entry
Start prototyping immediately with supported boards and a developer build of Android Things. There's no need for kernel, firmware, or board development.
Build products at scale
Shipping products is easy because our prototype boards are commercial grade. The same boards can be easily customized by your prototype supplier to fit your specific form-factor and other needs, all while running the same software.

Google APIs and services
Leverage a wide range of Google services, including Google Play services.
System updates and support
We provide the system image, updates, fixes, and more, so you can focus on creating compelling products.
Large scale infrastructure
Push Google-provided OS updates and your own app updates, using the same OTA infrastructure we use for our own products.
Get started now with the Developer Preview, so you can start designing and developing your own products. We will be providing regular updates with new features, and a long-term support release for commercialization in the coming months.
