Google is all set to announce Google Andromeda, a fusion of its Android and Chrome operating systems. Sadly, October came and went with no such announcement. Sure, there are Chromebooks like the Pixelbook that can run Android apps through the Play store, but Andromeda referred internally as Fuchsia at Google, runs deeper than that.
What is Google Fuchsia?
Fuchsia is a hybrid operating System that is still very much in the phase of development. The entirety of Fuchsia OS is comprised of two distinct but connected user interfaces (UI): a phone-centric one codenamed ‘Armadillo’ and a traditional desktop UI which is known as ‘Capybara’ internally, according to report.
In the case of Fuchsia, that kernel is known as ‘Zircon,’ and it’s designed to be consistently and easily upgradeable in addition to being safe from applications which are accessing it constantly, adding an extra layer of security panel and eliminating situations in which apps are rendered incompatible with OS recent updates.
Whether it’s on the mobile or desktop orientation, Fuchsia is laden with Material design found all over its both the products of Android and Chrome. Fuchsia is also heavily focused on a cards-based interface, in which every app you open appears inside one of these cards – plus, you can place multiple apps into a single card. This orients the user around tasks at hand rather with the help of apps. Those apps are expected to look the same across different devices because of a new cross-platform mobile app development framework, which is developed by Google for its internal use, known as Flutter.
