- Google just revealed more details about its mysterious operating system called Fuchsia, that’s expected to replace Android one day.
- Google is opening Fuchsia to developers who want to contribute to the project and has released guidelines on getting anyone interested in the new open-source OS.
- Google confirms that Fuchsia is “designed to prioritize security, updatability, and performance,” but it’s not a finished product.
We’ve been talking about Fuchsia for a few years now, but Google confirmed the existence of this mysterious operating system only in 2019, without actually confirming any of the rumors related to it. The gist of Fuchsia is that it’ll be the replacement of Android that will fix some of the worst things about Android without ruining it. Fuchsia will run on various devices, including home devices with no displays, smartphones, tablets, and PCs. The operating system will not have the same fragmentation problem as Android, as Google will be in charge of updates that would roll out simultaneously across devices, just like it happens with iOS. And Fuchsia will have better privacy and security than Android. Finally, the OS will run all current Android apps and allow developers to code an application once and distribute it on Fuchsia and iOS. That’s the legend of Fuchsia, at least, as Google has never shared a roadmap for Fuchsia or detailed plans to “kill” Android. But the company is finally ready to move forward with Fuchsia, and the next step involves sharing more details with the public, as Google wants the help of developers.
