Brillo extends the Android platform to all your connected devices, so they are easy to set up and work seamlessly with each other and your smartphone.

Brillo is a scrubbed-down version of Android that will provide a lightweight but familiar operating system with built-in support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and low-power communication protocols like Thread. “This is basically the lower layers of Android—the kernel, the hardware abstraction layer, the real core essentials—so it can run on devices with a minimal footprint,” Pichai said. Like Android, it will be able to run on a wide variety of hardware from different manufacturers and will be easy to manage.
