At the conference for developers I / O 2019, in addition to the presentation of the tenth version of Android , Google representatives for the first time shared details about the secret operating system Fuchsia. Maps revealed Hiroshi Lockheimer, responsible for Android and Chrome OS.
According to Hiroshi Lockheimer, Fuchsia will be a completely new system. When creating it, the company takes into account the lessons learned from working with Android and Chrome OS. He also noted that the OS is an experiment with different form factors.
“Fuchsia OS is not only for phones and PCs. In the world of the Internet of Things, the number of devices requiring operating systems, new runtime environments, and the like is growing. I think that there can be several operating systems with various advantages and specializations. Fuchsia is one of them, so stay tuned, ”Hiroshi Lockheimer told.
A Google representative also noted that Fuchsia is a pilot project and some of its parts or functions can be used in other products of the company. Judging by the words of Lockheimer, Fuchsia will not replace Android and Chrome OS, as previously assumed, but will add to the list. The new OS can be used for devices of the Internet of things, smart home, etc.
Recall that anyone can try the earlier version of Fuchsia directly in the browser .
