Google invests $22M in feature phone operating system KaiOS

KaiOS (the OS which powers Jio phone) works closely with manufacturers like TCL, HMD Global, and Micromax and has partnerships with carriers such as Reliance Jio, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile.
These partners produce affordable devices that include essential functionalities like apps, GPS, 4G/LTE, and Wi-Fi.
In addition to the investment, Google and KaiOS have also agreed to work together to make the Google Assistant, Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Search available to KaiOS users. These apps have been developed specifically for the KaiOS platform, which is entirely web-based, using open standards such as HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS.
