Introducing Console OS with Android™ Inside. We’ve taken Android apart, and put it back together for your PC. Console OS is a fork of Android designed to take everything that has made mobile awesome, and bring it back to your PC.
Production-grade Android on the Desktop
- Industry-licensed, native Android that can really toggle with Windows on your PC
- Raising Android up to be your primary PC operating system
- Creating a touch-optional Android – and touch-friendly for massive multitouch displays
- Perfect for existing PC tablets and 2-in-1 devices
Console OS Pro – Taking Android Even Farther
Console OS Pro will add over twenty killer premium features, including InstaSwitch.InstaSwitch will eventually facilitate switching instantaneously between native Windows and native Android, on your x86-based tablet or PC.
Easy to install
Install directly on your PC, or run it entirely from a USB external hard disk. All your apps, documents, even encryption can boot directly from a USB hard disk. Turn your PC into an Android, and never have to touch your Windows install. Want to boot Windows alongside Android from your internal drive? We fully support that, and our installer takes less than five minutes to pull that off, automagically.
Built for the Mainstream
Every thing in Console OS is built for a mainstream audience, and is designed for manufacturers – OEMs – to have a drop-in, native Android solution for their PCs. We’re going to be both Secure Boot and dm-verify – which means trusted computing that OEMs can ship alongside Windows.
Console OS is ready For action – See how we stack up to other Android-on-PC initiatives.
For Tablets Too
Powerful x86 tablets are awesome. But, they only run Windows®. Or, they only run Android. Console OS empowers you to run both native Windows and native Android on the same device. We’ve built a version of Android that we completely control. So, we can drop it in and run Windows and Android side-by-side – plus enable two Android apps to run side-by-side, baking in a familiar app launcher and swipe motions.
For Gamers Too
Console OS arms Android with the tools to grow into a true console-quality experience. Live at GDC, we showed off how OpenGL ES 3.1 (and eventually the full OpenGL 4 stack) will enable Console OS and Android to become a mainstream gaming platform. Why would you need another gaming OS when Android is already the most popular OS in the world.
From the application store process, to the user experience, we’ve been working for the past 24 months to remaster Android for the desktop. Our Kickstarter backers and others are helping to make it a revolution. Have a look at the successful Kickstarter, and sign up now for Console OS news and updates!
