There is no speculation that Fuchsia OS, Google’s mysterious operating system, will replace Android at some point in the future. But another clue about that change came to light. A new document posted on the Android Open Source page Project (AOSP) quotes this directly.
The publication is titled “Target Devices of Fuchsia”. It describes that “these goals are used to create ART for Fuchsia”. ART is the acronym for Android Runtime. It’s the virtual machine of Google‘s mobile system introduced in KitKat in 2013.
According to the 9to5Google site, a special version of Android Runtime for Fuchsia will be developed. It will run on machines with this system from a FAR file, the equivalent of the Android APK.
More details on how this whole process will happen are still unclear. It is also worth mentioning that there is the possibility of ART being part of Zircon, the Fuschia kernel that could replace the Linux kernel of the robozinho system. This would make the bridge between the two systems even closer.
But as Google has not yet made clear what its intentions with the Fuchsia, all this is nothing more than speculation. The only certainty so far is that, in fact, the new system will be compatible with the immense Android application library. Just like Chrome OS is now.
