What Are The Main Benefits Of Google Coral

Here are some of the major advantages of Google Coral, which are as follows:

Main Advantages Of Google Coral

  • Privacy: Google Coral will keep the user data locally and also under your control.
  • Fast: The AI (Artificial Intelligence) is accelerated locally by Google Coral, which brings down inference time to 2 ms.
  • Efficiency: It demands low power consumption for allowing embedded applications.
  • Offline Support: Users can deploy it in a field where connectivity can be limited. 

Google Money Making Tools For Android Developers

Google has also introduced a new way to generate revenue for Android developers with the use of their mobile applications. The company has launched a new monetization option for apps called Rewarded Products and it is not related to the subscription.

The revenue model of this option is simple: users will contribute to the app’s revenue by giving their time instead of money. It will offer a rewarding video to users, where they can choose to watch a video ad in exchange for virtual goods and other in-app purchases.

This new feature will definitely make android developers happy but we have to wait for the user’s reaction. It will largely depend on the presentation of the video ads.

The launch of the new Google Money-Making Tools and Rewarded Option aims to compete with Apple’s success with the fully embraced subscription. Subscriptions are one of the major factors in App store revenue growth other than the mobile app gaming aspect.
