Greater support for the Android mobile operating system is coming to Intel-based devices, thanks to a strategic collaboration between Intel Corp. and Unity Technologies.

Unity has developed an end-to-end development platform for developers and designers to build games or apps and bring them across multiple platforms, such as mobile devices, home entertainment systems, personal computers and embedded systems.

Intel and Unity will work together to advance the development of Android-based applications on Intel architecture, allowing Unity developers to bring native Android games and other apps to Intel-based mobile devices.

“We’ve set a goal to ship 40 million Intel-based tablets this year and expect more than 100 Android tablet designs on Intel in the market by the end of this year,” said Doug Fisher, Intel corporate vice-president and general manager of the software and services group, in a state,emt. “Our collaboration with Unity will give its nearly 3 million developers the necessary software tools and support to build amazing Android experiences on Intel architecture.”

Unity is adding support for Android across all of Intel’s current and future processors, and will ensure future Intel product enhancements are integrated into future releases of the Unity platform. Developers using Unity can also easily add support for Intel architecture in their applications and easily produce native applications for Intel architecture.

“Unity is used by half of all mobile game developers, and many of them have been asking for increased support for Intel-based devices running Android,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies, in a statement. “We are proud to be working with Intel to ensure that Unity provides the smoothest and highest performing experience possible on Intel platforms.”
