Cool Google trying to get updates to Android faster

If you use an Android tablet or phone and you do NOT use a Google Nexus product, you are probably not getting the latest updates at the same time as the Nexus products get them. Samsung is especially bad about not updating their older phones with Android feature and security updates. It appears they would rather you purchase a new phone than update the older models.

Google may 'shame' carriers and manufacturers into updating Android faster

"Google may be taking a new tactic in persuading phone manufacturers and carriers to push out Android updates faster."

The "fragmentation problem" noted below is because Android is open source software and tablet and mobile phone manufacturers and carriers add their own "enhancements" usually "crapware" or desktop ads or temporary installs of software for sale. They also customise their respective desktops.

"It's becoming increasingly important for Google to deal with its massive fragmentation problem — that there are thousands of Android handsets on the market, the vast majority of which are not running the most recent version of Android. And, aside from Google's Nexus line, the company depends on carriers and smartphone makers to make security patches and operating system updates available to Android users."

"It's also a major security problem. Google regularly pushes out security patches to Android, but it can take weeks or even months for carriers to make them available to their subscribers."

"...it will need carriers and manufacturers to finally start taking updates seriously if there's to be any hope of solving the problem."
