OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

RaspAnd, the pop­u­lar dis­tri­bu­tion for Rasp­berry Pi de­vices, has re­ceived a new build. De­buted as the RaspAnd Build 170805, the new ver­sion comes with An­droid 7.1.2 Nougat and in­cludes Google Play sup­port.

RaspAnd de­vel­oper Arne Ex­ton has re­leased the new ver­sion. Ex­ton has ported Google Play Ser­vices to en­able easy app installations, as well as pro­vided users with a pre-in­stalled Google Apps pack­age that comes with apps such as Chrome, Google Play

Games, Gmail and YouTube. The team has also worked on im­prov­ing the video per­for­mance in this ver­sion.

Along with pro­vid­ing ex­ten­sive Google Play in­te­gra­tion, the new RaspAnd OS has ad­dressed the screen flick­er­ing is­sue that was re­ported in the pre­vi­ous ver­sions. The latest re­lease also in­cludes Kodi 17.3 me­dia cen­tre, and apps such as Spo­tify TV, ES File Ex­plorer and Ap­toid TV.

RaspAnd Nougat build 170805 is avail­able for ex­ist­ing users as a free up­date. New users need to pur­chase an im­age for US$ 9 and in­stall it on their ma­chines us­ing an SD card. You can use the Win32 disk man­ager util­ity or the GNU/Linux op­er­at­ing sys­tem.

The new RaspAnd build is specif­i­cally de­signed for Rasp­berry Pi 3 sys­tems.

Due to some higher re­source re­quire­ments, the dis­tri­bu­tion is not com­pat­i­ble with pre­vi­ous Rasp­berry Pi mod­els.
