Google has officially announced the release of the Fuchsia operating system. First of all, this OS will be available to the Nest Hub devices.
Nest Hub is a smart screen that combines the capabilities of a tablet and smart speakers with support for the Google Voice Assistant and the ability to control various home devices, including TV and security systems.
Fuchsia was released in version 1.0, but is not available to all Nest Hub owners, but only to those who take part in the pre-testing program for the new operating system. Later, a release version of the update will be released, which will replace the existing firmware on this device.
Initially, Nest Hub uses the Linux-based Cast OS operating system, which can be considered a modification of Android. Fuchsia has exactly the same features and interface as Cast OS and doesn’t add any new features to the Nest Hub. The only difference lies in the kernel – it is not based on Linux, but on code written by Google engineers and developers who are collaborating with the company on this project.
Google has been developing Fuchsia since 2016. It is a modular operating system that can be used on any type of device (smart home gadgets, wearable electronics, mobile devices, laptops, computers, etc.). Manufacturers will be able to choose only those operating system components that are used in a particular device, which allows increasing safety and optimize the consumption of memory and other resources.
Google has repeatedly stressed that Fuchsia will not replace Android and operating systems based on it, but will exist independently of other platforms. The various Fuchsia builds will be tailored for specific devices, taking into account their features. It is known that soon Samsung will release new models of smart watches, on which Tizen will not be installed, but a new operating system created with the support of Google. It can be assumed that it will be just Fuchsia.
Fuchsia is also known to have native support for Android apps. This means that if smartphones, tablets and laptops with this operating system appear, these gadgets will be able to run applications and games posted in the Play Store and third-party stores. The emergence of a variety of Fuchsia-based gadgets will allow Google to build an ecosystem in which all devices can interact with each other and exchange information.
