Asus hasn’t officially announced what to expect to find on the new operating system. However, there are things that you won’t see for sure, such as Asus’ Mail app, Calendar app, and Messanger App. Insted, what you will find are the equivalents to these apps by Google, i.e. Gmail, Google Calendar and Messenger. Still, if you would like to use the official apps from the manufacturer, they will be available on the PlayStore.
