Our advice is don’t be afraid of a mixed fleet. Start with GMS and use AOSP as needed for complex or specific use cases. Choose the device type that will best satisfy your use case and, most importantly, create a seamless customer experience.
Our advice: Don’t optimize for Google Play Stare if you have a dedicated use case. It’s designed for consumer use cases. Dedicated fleets face edge conditions consumer devices don’t and have a mix of device types, like kiosks, POS, or digital display signage, that need nuanced support.
By advancing your software and device infrastructure according to your business model, you can create increasingly valuable and sticky relationships with your customers that you can monetize over time.
If you have dedicated devices, you need DevOps. DevOps for Devices will show you exactly why, and provide an easy-to-understand guide on how to get it.
