Google has been trying to tackle the crippling issue of Android fragmentation for years now, but the latest evidence seems to prove the firm's efforts are futile. While there is some hope that Google has started on the long road to recover with Android 8.0, it will be years before Google comes close to catching Apple, providing it ever does. And device manufacturers need to meet several requirements to enable Treble.
