Google’s New Operating System “Fuchsia” Is Available!

Internet giant Google’s long-awaited new operating system called Fuchsia has been installed on the first-generation Nest Hub, the first consumer device, the operating system is quietly starting to roll out, according to reports from 9to5Google. Google’s work on Fuchsia OS first appeared in 2016, and the open-source operating system manages to attract attention because it is not based on a Linux kernel, but instead uses a microkernel called Zircon. “You don’t ship a new operating system every day, but today is that day,” said Petr Hosek, Google technical head of the Fuchsia OS project .

While the rollout on the Nest Hub (which originally launched as the Google Home Hub before being renamed) kicks off today, it’s rumored that the entire release process could take several months. The new operating system, Fuchsia, will gradually ship to users in the Preview Program before it is released more widely. We’ve known the operating system has been tested on the Nest Hub for a while, and earlier this month, more evidence for a release emerged thanks to a Bluetooth SIG listing showing the Nest Hub running Fuchsia 1.0.


While Nest Hub will replace the current Cast OS with Fuchsia OS, 9to5Google notes that the experience is likely to be nearly identical, with most users unlikely to even notice the switch.

All this raises the question of what exactly the Fuchsia operating system should achieve.

” We know the OS could power laptops and smartphones in the future (Google tested it on the Pixelbook in 2018 and more recently has offered a solution on how it can run Android and Linux apps), but Fuchsia OS is an Android or Chrome OS one. an altered state.
