Google released Developer Preview 5 of Android Things, adding Android O, OpenGL ES, and WebView on the RPi 3, and support for an i.MX6 UL based “SprIoT” kit.

Google’s Android Things Developer Preview 5 (DP5) is the latest release of the original preview released last December when Google announced that its Brillo OS for IoT was being retooled into an Android Things distribution. The major improvement is a shift to a foundation of Android O, the nickname for what is expected to be an Android 8.0 release due in the next few months. There is also an improved Android Things Console, a new i.MX6 UL target — the NXP-supported Murata SprIoT kit – and OpenGL ES 2.0/WebView and dynamic pin muxing support on the Raspberry Pi 3.
