Recently Mark Zuckerberg coded an AI Jarvis, the iron man thing ! connecting his home to AI that can help him to be more productive.Well not to get to far but what if i as an android developer can code something cool like that.

With over 328 million Android devices shipped worldwide, the operating system has long dominated the smartphone industry. But in the third quarter of 2016, Android managed to capture a record 88% of the global market, according to Strategy Analytics.

Android’s success has a lot to do with the advantages of its approach. Unlike iOs—included only on Apple devices—Android has hundreds of partners releasing new phones every year. (The third quarter saw the release of the iPhone 7, but also new phone models from Oppo, Samsung, Huawei, and others.) Likewise, there are multiple Android options in mid-range or low-end price brackets. That can be crucial in price-sensitive markets like India, where 97% of smartphone users have Android devices, and in countries across Africa and the Middle East.

Google wants to put Android in the next wave of smart devices that’ll be vying to fill up your home. Google recently launched Android Things that can run on products like connected speakers, security cameras, and routers. The OS is supposed to make it easier for companies to start shipping hardware, since they’ll be able to work with the Android dev tools they already know.

Android things is just a new IoT os with capabilities to run on boards like Rasberry PI. It can connect your existing system to your android devices and with just a push of a button.Things apps use the same structure as those designed for phones and tablets. This similarity means you can modify your existing apps to also run on embedded things or create new apps based on what you already know about building apps for Android.

With android being used in almost every digital devices the future is sure lies in android.
