Google opens a website for Fuchsia OS development

Up until recently, we knew very little about Google's Fuchsia OS. First appearing on GitHub back in 2016 with no official announcement, theories quickly sprang up about what it could be. Some touted it as a replacement for Android, others as a replacement for Chrome OS. The reality was that no one knew exactly what...

Google finally acknowledges Fuchsia OS, says it’s just an experiment

Google's Fuchsia project has been shrouded in mystery for nearly 3 years now. It first appeared on GitHub back in August of 2016 with no official announcement or documentation. Theories quickly sprung up, with some saying it could be a replacement for Android or Chrome OS, or both. Indeed, these theories are supported by the fact...

Developers get Fuchsia running in the Android Studio Emulator

Google is well-known for its Android and Chrome OS operating systems. They're used in hundreds of millions of devices worldwide. Both are famous for being open-source, meaning we know everything there is to know about them. But Google is working on a third operating system, called Fuchsia, which we know far less about. It first...

Fuchsia OS may support Android apps like Google’s Chrome OS

We've been learning tidbits about Google's secret operating system, Fuchsia OS, for quite a while now, but there still hasn't been any official word from Google about what it will be used for. Some suspect it destined to replace Android, while others believe it will be for something entirely different. If it is indeed slated...

Huawei begins testing Fuchsia OS on the Kirin 970-based Honor Play

Unless you've been living under a rock these past few months, you've probably heard about the Fuchsia operating system Google is currently developing. While Google has yet to speak publicly about the project, we know it is open source, and development is slowly but steadily going forward. Many speculate that, eventually, Fuchsia will replace the Android...

Google publishes documentation explaining the Fuchsia Operating System

You've probably seen mentions of the Fuchsia operating system here and there since it has been in development for almost 2 years. It's Google's not-so-secretive operating system which many speculate will eventually replace Android. We've seen it grow from a barely functional mock-up UI in an app form to a version that actually boots on existing...

Google’s Former Head of Android Platform Security is now working on Fuchsia

While most of us are focused on Google's Android operating system, Google has quietly been working on another operating system called Fuchsia. We've seen it slowly progress over the years to the point where it can actually be installed on existing hardware—namely, the Google Pixelbook. We have a lot to learn about the fledgling OS...

This is Google’s Fuchsia OS running on the Pixelbook [Video]

Google is working on a number of operating systems for different hardware platforms. Many of its employees use an in-house Linux distro called Goobuntu (recently replaced with Debian-based gLinux), and there's Android and Chrome OS, of course. A relative newcomer is Fuchsia, a custom-made OS designed for modern PCs and mobile devices. It first appeared on Google's...

Google’s Fuchsia is a Smartphone OS with a New UI But No Linux Kernel

As is customary with everything Google, if it exists, there must be more than one of it. Jokes aside, Google does seem very much interested in bringing up and maintaining not only Android and Chrome OS as viable and mainstream OS's, but they're also looking at bringing up yet another OS in the form of Fuchsia. Fuchsia...
