Google Doesn't Like Devices With Fast Charging Feature


Google isn't a huge fan of non-standard approaches to fast-charging Android phones over USB-C, and it's bent on having all OEMs fall in line. Its newest Android Compatibility Definition document (for Android Nougat) now says it's "strongly recommended" that device makers don't support proprietary charging technology that modifies voltages beyond standard levels, or otherwise creates "interoperability issues" with standard USB charging. In other words, tech like Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0  is likely considered naughty

. On top of that, the company warns that later versions of Android might even require full interoperability with standard chargers.
