Meet Android Based Remix OS For Your PC and Mac

Posted in Android Application, and Desktop

Remix OS is our state of the art Android-based operating system. We mean it when we say you get a PC experience unlike anything on Android and an Android experience unlike anything on a PC. The innovative features we’ve brought to Remix OS 2.0 have been meticulously engineered to bring you the best of both worlds – the harmonious fusion of a mobile and desktop experience.

Officially, Jide Technology will be releasing Remix OS 2.0 as a free download on January 12th. It is designed to run on majority of Intel and AMD desktops and laptops, and even on Mac devices. Jide Technology is run by three ex-Google employees and they have worked substantially with the team behind the Android-x86 to make sure Remix OS runs on almost any PC.

Minimum requirements for the OS are a USB 3.0 flash drive that supports FAT32 format with a minimum capacity of 8GB (and a recommended writing speed of 20MB/s) and a PC that supports booting from a USB.

It also means that anyone with any Intel or AMD-based x86 hardware gathering dust in a cupboard can put it to use again, should you so wish.

Right now, Remix OS 2.0 is based on Android Lollipop, but it will be getting an upgrade to Marshmallow in the near future – and either way, it’s free, so you’ve not got much to lose in testing it out.

David Ko, Co-Founder of Jide Technology explains: “Today’s public release of Remix OS, based on Android x86, is something that we’ve been working towards since we founded Jide Technology in 2014. All of us are driven by the goal of making computing a more accessible experience, with this free, public release allowing us to do this. We believe Remix OS is the natural evolution of Android and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this change.”

The alpha build will be available to download from January 12 onwards directly from Jide or project partner Android-x86.
