3.0 for ARM devices, 3.0.207 for PCs / November 25, 2016; 3 months ago (2016-11-25)
Remix OS is a computer operating system for personal computers with x86 and ARM architectures that ships with a number of 1st- and 3rd-party devices. Remix OS allows PC users to run Android mobile apps on any compatible Intel-based PC.
In January 2016 Jide announced a Beta version of their operating system called Remix OS for PC, which is based on Android-x86 — a x86-port of the Android operating system — and available for download for free from their website. The beta version of Remix OS for PC brings hard drive installation, 32-bit support, UEFI support and OTA updates. Except for the free software licensed parts available on GitHub., unlike Android-x86, the source code of Remix OS is not available to the public.
Google Mobile Services (GMS) were removed from the Remix Mini after Remix OS Update: 2.0.307 which Jide claimed was to 'ensure a consistent experience across all Android devices for all.' Later comments suggest that there was a compatibility issue with some apps which resulted in Google requesting that GMS not be pre-loaded.
