Google has begun preparations for the roll-out of its Fuchsia OS, set to replace Android in the near future. Here’s everything you need to know.


Google is now becoming more transparent about its much-awaited Fuchsia OS, also touted as the Android replacement. The company has now quitely launched a dedicated website for developers. The website also gives away a few important details about the new operating system.
For starters, Google says its Fuchsia OS is not Linux. The new operating system is based on Zircon microkernel which also provides core drivers and Fuchsia’s libc implementation. According to GSMArena, Google’s new OS is scalable and well optimised for a range of devices including phones, tablets and PCs.
Google has largely remained tight lipped about its Fuchsia OS. Earlier this year, Android chief Hiroshi Lockheimer disclosed that Fuchsia is aimed at bringing uniformity between all kinds of devices.
“We’re looking at what a new take on an operating system could be like. And so I know out there people are getting pretty excited saying, ‘Oh this is the new Android,’ or, ‘This is the new Chrome OS,’” Lockheimer had said.
“Fuchsia is really not about that. Fuchsia is about just pushing the state of the art in terms of operating systems and things that we learn from Fuchsia we can incorporate into other products,” he added.
