Future of Android and Chrome OS is Google Fuchsia OS

Fuchsia OS

Google Fuchsia OS is an operating system currently being developed by Google.It is the third operating system after Android and Chrome OS. Google Fuchsia OS first became known to the public when the project appeared on GitHub in August 2016 without any official announcement.

Zircon Kernel (formerly Magenta)

Unlike Android OS or Chrome OS, both of which are based on Linux, Fuchsia is built on Zircon (formerly Magenta), a new micro-kernel created by Google.  It’s not immediately clear exactly why Google is building a new operating system, nor what devices it will run on.

Developers can now load Google Fuchsia OS onto the Pixelbook

Google has been experimenting with Fuchsia for more than a year, Now it has released documentation to allow developers to load Fuchsia onto the company’s Pixelbook. At this time it is difficult to load, and you’ll need two machines to host and target a Pixelbook to load the OS.

Possibility of Fuchsia OS replacing Android

Upon inspection, media outlets noted that the code post on GitHub suggested Fuchsia’s capability to run on universal devices, from embedded systems to smartphones, tablets and personal computers.

Back in 2016, Fuchsia was just bunch of code with no user interface. In May 2017, Fuchsia was updated with a user interface, along with a developer writing that the project was not a “dumping ground of a dead thing”, prompting media speculation about Google’s intentions with the operating system, including the possibility of it replacing Android.

Google is Facing two main problems with Android First, there’s fragmentation caused by hundreds of different devices from dozens of manufacturers using different, tweaked versions of Android rather than the latest, purest version. Second, There’s an update problem. Google annually release Android update but it takes almost four years to fully update the devices across the world.

The reason for that is Android is an Open Source project which means Google let other OEM and carriers to play with it an load into their random harware. Google can’t directly load Android to these devices if any modifications and tinkering has been done.

Another problem is that Android is Linux based.The Linux kernel was not originally designed for smartphones and IoT devices, and yet the kernel’s been completely tweaked and loaded onto those devices, creating a prime environment for bugs and vulnerabilities and security issues to grow.

So, Possibly a new OS can resolve these issues. As we know Google Fuchsia OS is based on zircon micro kernel and it will optimized for future requirements. Finally there are reasons to replace Android with Google Fuchsia OS but who knows what will happen it’s very early to say anything.

The Fuchsia OS UI

Google has added an early user interface to its new operating system featuring a card-based design, as can be seen in Ars Techinca’s gallery of images and the video below.

Google Fuchsia OS: What's the story so far?

The first thing to be noticed that Material Design has come in big way. Fuchsia uses its own special renderer, Escher, that specializes in shadows. Everything including windows, notifications, buttons, pop up boxes, and more are all geometrically layered.

Even though it is in very early stages but still we can see how beautifully fuchsia handles multitasking, Other phones can only handle two apps in a same time but Google Fuchsia OS can open more than two apps surprisingly very well.

 

Fuchsia currently offers two layouts: a novel mobile-friendly design code-named Armadillo, and a more traditional desktop experience code-named Capybara. Meanwhile, Armadillo is built in Google’s Flutter SDK, which is used to create cross-platform code capable of running on multiple operating systems. With Armadillo, different cards can be dragged around for use in a split-screen or tabbed interface.

What is Andromeda and how it relates to Fuchsia OS

Once it was reported that Google is working on a Pixel Laptop that will merge Chrome OS and Android. That project was code-named Andromeda. Instead, Google announced support for Android apps on Chrome OS, rather than an entirely new operating system. As testing spreads to more Chromebooks, some are now speculating this could be a successor to the “Andromeda” project that never came to life.

How to Try Fuchsia OS on your Smartphone
