It’s been a few years since we started hearing about Fuchsia. It’s Google’s mysterious operating system that was treated by many as a likely substitute for Android. This name circulated for a long time. But few concrete details were revealed about the project. This may start to change soon. Because during Google I / O 2019, the company did something rare and talked publicly about Fuchsia.
Fuchsia is not a substitute for Android or Chrome
Hiroshi Lockheimer is the chief of the divisions responsible for Android and Chrome. During a participation in The Verge podcast, he made some comments about the operating system of the future. For Lockheimer, we should not think of Fuchsia as a new Android or a new Chrome OS. As it will not be exactly that.
Google does not want them to think of Fuchsia as a substitute for Android or Chrome OS.
This statement indicates a great deal of speculation in recent years. It’s that Fuchsia is being thought primarily of Internet devices of Things, wearable and other smaller gadgets – must really be real. The executive supplemented this claim by saying that everyone imagines that Fuchsia will be used on cell phones. But it can be thought to run on other electronics.
Google even quoted Fuchsia in a developer-oriented text on the Flutter development kit. However, the company did not want to give more details about the system when it was searched. It’s a sign that we probably will not have much news in this area. At least for the next few months.
So far, we know that Fuchsia will be able to run applications made for Android. And we had access to a small preview that simulates the possible visual of the system. In addition, it is being developed as an open source program. And it will use a new kernel. Especially created by the company.
