Microsoft is gearing up to roll out Windows 10 on every device possible, even for those new IoT (Internet of Things) devices, which are small, low in tech specs, and very inexpensive. However, Microsoft isn’t the only one building a small footprint operating system, Google will soon get in the same market.

A new report from The Information claims that Google is developing a new IoT operating system called Brillo, and the search giant is expected to unveil the new software during the I/O developer conference later this month.

While there is not much details about the features or how the software will look like, because we know is an IoT operating system, we can assume Brillo is an optimized piece of software for hardware with very low resources and low RAM.

Google I/O will be happening on May 28, and we might just hear more about the new operating system during the conference, where the company is also expected to unveil major updates coming to Android OS and various other things.
