Google has released the long-awaited Fuchsia OS

Published

Google has finally released the new Fuchsia OS. It has been over four years since Fuchsia OS was first introduced.

However, the first mass-produced device to receive Fuchsia OS was not a smartphone at all, as many had hoped and assumed. On the contrary, the first sign was a product for a smart home.

Google has begun rolling out an update for the first generation Nest Hub. The update replaces the existing operating system of the device with Fuchsia OS.

Google has released the long-awaited Fuchsia OS

Recall that the Nest Hub is a smart speaker with Google Assistant support and a large 7-inch display. The device debuted in 2018 and ran Cast OS, a Linux-based operating system.

Now Google is changing the OS to Fuchsia OS. As interesting as it sounds, the first update from Fuchsia OS won’t bring any major UI changes. In fact, all of the user-centric design elements, as well as the overall functionality and features of the Nest Hub, will remain the same as before.

The Fuchsia-based update will reach all first-generation Nest Hubs gradually over the coming months. It is noted that the transition to Fuchsia OS from Cast OS will be a slow process. The new OS will first appear on Nest Hub devices, whose users participate in the Preview Program, and then will be available to a wider range of users.

Fuchsia is currently only available for the 2018 Nest Hub. Google did not specify when the latest operating system can be expected to be rolled out to other Cast OS devices, including the second-generation Nest Hub. Considering Fuchsia has been in development since 2016, it was nice to see it start working on a production device. Unlike Linux-based Android and Chrome OS, Fuchsia OS is built from the ground up and uses a new microkernel called Zircon.
