Rumor: Google Is Still Planning To Replace Android With Fuschia OS
A couple of years ago, rumors about Google’s Fuschia OS – a possible successor to Android – have surfaced. Although those rumors have dwindled down for a bit, it looks like Fuschia OS is still very much alive. Google has over a hundred developers working on the operating system, and the plan is still for Fuschia to replace Android in the near future.
That is being reported by Bloomberg, although Google later commented that Fuschia OS is still in early development. Google says that Android will not be replaced within the coming five years, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not silently working on a successor.
Bloomberg’s sources mention that Google plans to use Fuschia OS for all of its devices, including smartphones, connected devices such as Google home, and larger devices such as laptops. In other words, Fuschia would not only replace Android – but Chrome OS as well.
According to the news agency, the development of Fuschia has been met with a couple of struggles internally. There seems to have been some kind of a conflict between the advertising and development sections of the Fuschia OS team, with the latter aiming to protect privacy features. Bloomberg reports that the advertising team was able to ‘win’ this debate.
In any case, Android will still be Google’s main operating system for the years to come – but it’ll be interesting to see how the development and use of Fuschia OS will progress.
