Google says it will require Android phone manufacturers to roll out security patches on a “regular” basis — though it isn’t clear who that requirement will apply to or how rigorous the mandate will be. On Wednesday, during a talk at Google’s annual developer conference that was caught by 9to5Google via XDA Developers, the company announced that many more users would receive regular security patches thanks to new agreements it’s making with partners.
