Every month, Google prepares security patches for its branded smartphones, thereby increasing the security of using devices and correcting errors found. However, this situation with third-party manufacturers of Android-devices leaves much to be desired. Charter to deal with the current situation, Google executives decided to oblige manufacturers to update security patches, otherwise they will have their licenses revoked.
According to information published by The Verge, third-party manufacturers will be required in the first year of release of the gadget to provide at least four security updates and regularly release assemblies for two years.
At the moment, the agreement is valid only for European companies, but very soon it will be expanded to other regions.
