Updates are easily the biggest problem facing the Android ecosystem, and Google is working hard to fix that. Project Treble has proven that it's capable of making updates easier, and now Google is stepping up requirements for OEMs when it comes to security patches.

Every little step in this department is a welcome one. It's not yet clear what, exactly, the requirements entail, but hopefully, it's a strict and hard requirement to publish every monthly security update.

Yes, security updates should be released when needed. I am talking about feature updates. It would be much easier for everyone to handle if Google only released every 3rd android version and instead only released security and bug fixes and app updates in between.
