Google Fuchsia os – The Fusion for Universal operating system
Google fuchsia OS is an open-source capability-based operating system currently being developed by Google. It has been seen as the future of Google’s Android- Chrome hybrid operating system.
The announcement of Google Fuchsia was expected in October 2017 however it didn’t come up officially.
It is expected to be the ultimate Google fuchsia OS which would be running on its phones, tablets, laptops and smart home devices.
Speculations so far
There has only been speculation about Google Fuchsia os or Google Andromeda announcement news. There are some Chrome-books along with the Google-Pixel book to run the same currently.
This operating system, whenever finally launched, would be universal Google operating system to operate on all kinds of devices. It will run both Android apps from the Google Play Store.
As of now the look of Google Fuchsia OS is not known as only a little concrete information has been released to date. But the idea behind this operating system is to render the user the ability to do whatever they want from whichever device they have in their hand.
There would be no separate need of buying device compatible with this operating system.
On July 1, 2019, Google announced the homepage of the project, fuchsia.dev. This provides source code and documentation for this newly announced operating system.
Google’s efforts behind its approach of bringing Android messages and VR video editor together to the wide range of hardware have hinted about Google’s intention of coming up with this operating system anytime soon in the future.
Google Fuchsia is a developmental stage and comprises of two distinct user interfaces (UI) which are connected namely – a phone-centric one codenamed ‘Armadillo’ and the traditional desktop user interface known as ‘Capybara.
This system UI has been written with the cross-platform SDK called “flutter”. The only supported device for this system is Chrome OS-powered Google Pixelbook.
Fuchsia started developing in 2016 but probably has several years of development time ahead of its release.
Unlike Chrome and Android that were based on Linux kernel, Fuchsia is based on a new microkernel called Zircon, which is the name of the mineral.
Also, it would be safe from applications assessing it constantly. Additionally, there would be an extra layer of security to eradicating situations where apps are rendered incompatible with the OS updates.
Fuchsia OS is primarily focused on a card-based interface in which apps open appear inside one of these cards and users can place multiple apps into a single card. This will help the user stay pointed around tasks on their gadgets rather than the apps. This OS will revolve around Google’s assistant more deeply.
Additional working with the installed apps and information it will provide even more precise actions and insights.
According to the GitHub developer page, Google is referring apps and the pieces of information as entities and this will be accessible by Google Assistant on Fuchsia OS.
Report from 9to5 Google
According to the report from 9 to 5 Google OK, Google will be changing how it gathers analytic data with the help of this OS as it will be implementing a new analytic program called ” Cobalt”. This program will collect information on how the users use apps within the OS.
Also, the report from 9to5 Google states, the early build of Chromium is up and running on an early build of Google Fuchsia.
To be the best cross-device operating system to date, Fuchsia is using a new tool known as ledger by the GitHub community. This tool will automatically hold your place in all the installed apps across all the Fuchsia devices once you sign -in into a Google account on any Fuchsia device.
Expected release date
Ever since August 2016, there has been a lot of rumors about Google Fuchsia’s release date. But rumors has little foundation and there seems to be no possibility of Fuchsia being released before 2024, at least.
Also, the new hire for helping bring Fuchsia to market is Bill Stevenson, a senior Mac OS engineer from Apple.
This OS is Google’s attempt to render it uses the best of Chrome and Android into a single OS which is efficient and seamless.
This would be Google’s answer to Microsoft and Apple’s united platforms. Microsoft and Apple have accomplished this with windows 10, iOS and macOS High Sierra. Fuchsia is Google’s way of assessing search and data-tracking at fingertips.
This Google will be able to push new updates and features to all the versions at the same time which means simply find support as well as user understanding and experience.
