Google supports the developer experience by launching a single Android graphics tool.

Imagination Technologies announced that it is supporting Google Android Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Inspector to help developers profile and debug graphics on Android using a single tool.

Google Android GPU Inspector is an open-source graphics profiling tool that supports a variety of GPUs. Imagination has been working with Google to implement the necessary features in its graphics driver stack to support performance profiling on PowerVR devices.

Imagination's producer service is shipped as part of the Android graphics driver and provides on request the necessary profiling metrics. According to the company, developers using Google Android GPU Inspector will benefit from detailed GPU timing and counter data, facilitating easier analysis of complex GPU workloads on PowerVR GPUs.

Imagination also supports Android's updateable driver model.
