The Mountain Viewers have been working on a new operating system for years, which could replace Android in the long run. Now, the long-awaited launch of Fuchsia OS by Google has begun. As reported by 9to5Google, the company has said that the operating system is reaching the first generation of Nest Hub, one of the smart displays that Google sells in various markets. Fuchsia OS has been in the works for more than three years, and it is speculated that it will be the replacement for Android and Chrome OS in the future. Fuchsia OS: the new operating system coming to some Google products The rollout is limited and controlled at the moment. The report says that Fuchsia OS will initially come only to the company’s “Preview Program”, with a broader rollout planned later. Even so, the Nest Hub is not the most widely used device yet, which means that the operating system will be available to very few users at the moment. Google is likely using controlled deployment to get more data on operating system performance, debug, and more. Fuchsia OS is expected to be a platform for environmental computing or smart home devices of the future, which will work on mobile phones, smart home devices, laptops and others. Although Google has never confirmed what the operating system will be about, the deployment in the Nest Hubs could be a sign that it is intended for the future ecosystem of the smart home. “We’re looking at what a new version of an operating system might look like. I know people get excited saying, ‘This is the new Android’ or ‘This is the new Chrome OS.’ Fuchsia is simply about pushing the state of the art in terms of operating systems and the things that we learn from Fuchsia that we can incorporate into other products, “the company told TheVerge in 2019. A new operating system surrounded by uncertainty Since its inception, Fuchsia has remained shrouded in mystery, inviting all kinds of wild theories and opinions from all corners of the tech community. One of the most common theories around this new operating system has been that Google will end up replacing the Android operating system with Fuchsia. We don’t know what the future holds, but looking at the way things are right now, Fuchsia is unlikely to replace a mature operating system like Android in the short term.
