BharOS, Made In India mobile Operating System; Know everything


BharOS is an Indian government-funded project that is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Unlike Android, it does not come with default Google apps or services, giving users more control over the apps they choose to use. Developed by the IIT-Madras incubated non-profit JandK Operations “Private Limited (JandKops)”, the free and open-source operating system (OS) will be primarily used in government and public systems. The project aims to reduce reliance on foreign operating systems in smartphones and contribute to the goal of “Atmanirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India).

Is BharOs different from Android?

BharOS is an indigenous operating system that is similar to Android in terms of technicalities, but without any Google services. It allows users to choose which apps they wish to install on their device, and is based on AOSP. One key difference is its No Default Apps (NDA) feature, which gives users more control, freedom, and flexibility to choose apps that cater to their needs. Developers have stated that it is better than both Android and iOS in terms of features, security, and battery life. BharOS also offers “Native Over The Air” (NOTA) updates, which means software updates will automatically get downloaded and installed on the device.

Privacy and security features

BharOS is designed with a focus on privacy and security, in addition to its No Default Apps (NDA) feature, the operating system also allows users to access trusted apps from company-specific Private App Store Services (PASS). PASS provides access to a curated list of apps that have been thoroughly vetted and have met certain security and privacy standards set by the organizations. This means that users can have confidence that the apps they are installing are safe to use and have been checked for any potential security vulnerabilities or privacy concerns, as stated by the developers.

Can you install BharOS on your device?

BharOS is reportedly planned to be available on a range of devices including laptops, phones, as well as desktops, however, its release date is not announced yet and still under development. Unlike Windows OS, BharOS cannot be installed on all Android phones, therefore, it might not be available for all devices after the wider roll-out. Currently, it is said to be compatible with Google Pixel smartphones, but there is no official confirmation from the developers.
