Android, or the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), is led by Google, which maintains and further develops the codebase, as an open-source software project. Google markets its maintenance and progression of the project as part of their belief that everyone can and should have access to the internet.
This is partially true. Expect the good things Android is Open Source. It’s more or less business, Google is making it’s 90% revenue from advertising.
AOSP is Android without Google, In China, Google apps are not allowed, they are using their own apps like Baidu. But its more or less the same. In China, Baidu is tracking peoples activity.
