Remix OS For PC Exits Alpha, Brings Major Update
Remix OS the Android build rapidly gaining popularity for its implementation of multi-window and the ability to be installed and most PCs has left alpha and entered beta just six weeks after launch. The beta will be available to download from March 1st and brings some major changes.
The significant change log for the Beta includes:
Over 50 major bugs fixed
UEFI support added
32-bit support added alongside 64-bit
Hard drive installer for dual boot now available
OTA update support
Thanks to popular demand, Jide has been hard at work providing compatibility for 32-bit systems, which has also been implemented in the upcoming beta update
“A vast number of computers that still run 32-bit processors can now be given a new life with a lightweight Android-powered OS. This capability has exciting prospects particularly in developing markets where consumers are unlikely to regularly upgrade their hardware”
Many users stated that they were frustrated by the lack of Google Play Services on the system, this is due to Google’s testing of the operating environment and could mean that the Play Store and everything it brings will be available “out of the box” in a future OTA after Google have completed their tests. Users of the beta unfamiliar with the installation process can find simple instructions on the Jide website on how to install the store themselves until then.
