Here’s a juicy scoop on Google’s secretive plans. It is not unknown that a small group of engineers within Google are working on developing an operating system that can replace Android OS since two years. However, a Bloomberg report has revealed that the team have plans to launch the new Fuchsia OS that will replace Android OS on Google devices, eventually, with time, some day.
Since two years, we have been hearing about the movement inside Google team over the development of a new operating system. In the latest development, Bloomberg reporters served a fresh juicy scoop on Google’s secretive plans about the new operating system by revealing that the tech-giant is working on fleshing out the Fuchsia OS that will eventually replace the Android OS on a wide range of Google products. As per the report, the Fuchsia OS secret mission started with just a few engineers inside Google and it now has more than 100 engineers on board, led by Matias Duarte, the brains behind Google’s Material Design language for the Android interface.
While the Fuchsia mission has blessings of Sundar Pichai, it is unknown of what Google actually wants the new OS to be. Basically, Fuchsia OS has been created at Google from the scratch with a goal to overcome the limitations of Android, and accommodate more security features. Fuchsia might also be painted in Artificial Intelligence, considering the fact that AI is what Google was all about in the recent annual conference. It could be a standalone OS that is capable of working on Google’s devices including phones, tablets, smart speakers and larger devices like laptops and PCs.
Or, it could just be an experimental system that is mostly meant to play with some ideas for now; just like Microsoft’s project called Singularity, another experimental microkernel-based operating system that eventually went nowhere. Because, to come up with a next-generation OS, Google will still have to bring a far larger team to bear on the project and invest significant resources into it. So to conclude, Fuchsia might end up in some of Google’s hardware at some point. And then, it would take more than just 100 engineers to build an OS, after all.
