Several hours after Samsung announced plans to release monthly updates OTA security on Android devices themselves, Google announced almost the same strategy.

Starting this week, Nexus devices will receive regular OTA updates each month focused on security, in addition to the usual updates to the platform. Google does not explicitly state the reason for launching this practice, but again we remember the news for easy hacking on Android devices through simple an MMS message.

The first security update of Nexus devices already spread and it affects the following models: Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and Nexus Player. Google promises to release the same security patches to the public via Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

Maintenance of Nexus devices remains unchanged: “The devices will continue to receive major updates for at least two years.” Google also cited his favorite statistics for Android security: “Less than 0.15% of the devices have potentially malicious software.”

This initiative by Google is a serious request to ensure the security of Android users, which will give them a greater peace of mind. Security updates will be delivered immediately and should definitely not be blocked or delayed by the mobile operators.

Monthly security update is not exactly timely, but it is a huge improvement over the previous system in which users do not know when their device will be patched. Samsung and Google have already taken the right step, and now remains and other OEM’s to join the initiative.
