Cyanogen wants to steal google from android

CYANOGEN,a leading company recently in a meeting announced that they want to release an android os without google play services.We can expect a device rolling out with cm12 without google services in it.

“We’re attempting to take Android away from Google,” Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster said at an industry conference in January. To that end, Cyanogen is reportedly courting companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Yahoo to help build a version of Android that’s more accommodating to their services, and to those of other companies. The goal is to have a viable alternative to Google’s flavor of Android in the next three to five years.

Still, Cyanogen in its current form isn’t a threat to Google. The company still pre-loads Google’s services and app store on its phones, so the Cyanogen experience isn’t drastically different from Google’s stock version of Android. But with more scale, Cyanogen stands a better chance of being taken seriously when it does decide to break free.

They were also ready to provide their customized android ie., cyanogenmod on android wear devices.They entered india via Yu Tele Ventures a sub brand of Indias leading mobile phone company Micromax. At present Yu Yureka is the only phone running on official Cyanogen OS apart from One Plus One.They were looking to release the successor of Yu Yureka on the next month named as Project Caesar

In the recent years cyanogen became more powerful and popular and their eye is on google now.If this project is successful they are going to rule the next generation technology.
