YunOS (also called Aliyun OS[1]) is a mobile operating system derived from Android and created by the chinese company Alibaba Group.[2] The system was officially released in July of 2011.[3]

Devices running YunOS are able to execute Android-Apps, however, Google classifies the system as being not compatible with Android, mostly because it does not meet the Android compatibility program.[4]
