Last year, we reported that Google was hiring someone to help OEMs deploy Android features that use Android’s Context Hub Runtime Environment. Today, Google announced that the OnePlus 11 uses CHRE to improve the responsiveness of Fast Pair discovery!
Although Google’s blog post calls CHRE a “new technology”, it’s been around for a while (since Android 7). The Pixel’s car crash detection feature, for example, makes use of CHRE. The blog post also says that they’re looking to use CHRE to “boost other Android features like Nearby Share, improving responsiveness when it comes to sharing files with friends from your phone.” Notably, The Pixel 7 series ships with a “nearby” nanoapp.
