Google has been steadily working towards the development of the Fuchsia OS for the past two years. We know that Fuchsia OS will eventually replace Android but the timeline was not clear. According to a report on Bloomberg, Fuchsia might replace Android in the next five years. Sources at Google told the publication,
“Ultimately the team [Google’s Fuchsia team] aspires to swap in their system for Android, the software that powers more than three-quarters of the world’s smartphones, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing internal matters. The aim for this is to happen in the next half-decade, one person said.”
Google also has plans of bringing Fuchsia to smart speakers and other devices within the next 3 years. It’s no news that Google wants Fuchsia to be the single OS that powers virtually every device. It is being designed to work on screens of different sizes with voice control as the primary medium of control.
The plan sounds like Google wants Fuchsia to become the ultimate OS around which every smart device revolves. It is an ambitious plan but it does seem like Google is closer than ever in achieving it. With billions of devices running different flavours of Android, Google already has a huge grip on the market. Bringing Fuchsia to all the devices will not be a cakewalk but it’s already big Android fan base would allow for a smoother transition as the consumer base already trusts Android.
