So is it a replacement for Android or not? Google wants to expand the use of the Fuchsia operating system

Published

According to new Google job openings, the search giant wants to expand its new Fuchsia operating system to more devices.

In particular, it says that it is time to expand the range to additional smart devices and other form factors. There are no details, of course, but Google itself does not release many products.

Recall that earlier this year Fuchsia quietly came out as an update for the first generation Nest Hub. It is quite logical that the second generation can also get a new OS, especially since there are hints of this in the job descriptions as well.

There is also a hint that Google may license Fuchsia to other companies or make it available as Android.

As an in-house software engineer on the Fuchsia team, you will lead the technical direction of graphics and multimedia and ensure that Fuchsia delivers maximum value to Fuchsia-based partners and products. You will also influence hardware decisions made by partners to improve Fuchsia and Google’s ability to deliver effective software solutions for mission-critical graphics and media workloads.

Whether Google from Fuchsia is still preparing a replacement for Android, it is still impossible to say. The new OS has always been unofficially called a replacement for the “green robot”, but Google itself has never confirmed this, and even now it is in no hurry to bring it to smartphones or at least smart watches.

Apple yesterday released a major update to the iPhone and iPad operating systems, iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1, which brought many changes, improvements and new features, including support for sharing and listening to SharePlay, new modes for iPhone 13, and so on.

And if iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 were long-planned and anticipated releases, today Apple has managed to surprise the public. It has released an update for the previous version of its mobile platforms – iOS 14.8.1 and iPadOS 14.8.1. These updates do not bring new features, but they increase the security of devices for those users who, for whatever reason, do not want to upgrade to the latest iOS 15.

Apple says in the changelog for the release:

This version contains important security updates. “

The updates fix bugs related to sound, ColorSync, Continuity camera, CoreGraphics framework, GPU drivers, IOMobileFrameBuffer kernel extension, kernel itself, Sidecar function, status bar, voice control and WebKit engine.

Microsoft is now preparing to release its signature low-cost Microsoft Surface laptop to compete with ChromeOS-based Chromebooks. And especially for such laptops, a simplified version of the operating system is being created – Windows 11 SE.

This was told by the columnist Zac Bowden from Windows Central, who often gives interesting, later confirmed information about Windows and other Microsoft products.

Bowden notes that the new Microsoft Surface is aimed at high school students and is aimed at the lower price segment. Codenamed Surface Laptop SE is equipped with an Intel Celeron N4120 processor, 8GB of RAM and an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. For ports, one USB Type-A, one USB Type-C, 3.5 mm headphone jack are provided.

Windows 11 SE is seen as Microsoft’s possible answer to Chrome OS. Since Windows 11 raises the bar on system requirements for most PCs significantly, a dedicated edition can provide reliable performance on entry-level laptops.

According to Bowden’s sources, the device has largely been finalized and Microsoft plans to announce it before the end of the year.

The team of the popular messenger Telegram has launched its own Telegram Ad Platform. It is described on the promote.telegram.org page on the messenger’s official website.

Telegram sponsored messages or Sponsored messages appear in large public one-to-many channels with over 1000 subscribers. Advertising messages are limited to 160 characters. As the Telegram team promises, the advertisements are based solely on the topic of the public channels in which they are displayed.

The developers emphasize that no user data is collected or analyzed to display advertisements. Every user viewing a specific channel in Telegram sees the same advertising messages. Telegram also does not track whether users click on an ad message and does not profile them based on their activity.

For their part, advertisers can choose the language and approximate theme of the channels on which their ads will be displayed. You can also select specific channels where specific ads will appear, or add specific channels where they won’t appear.

Telegram advertisements are currently in test mode. Telegram promises to start sharing ad revenues with the owners of public channels as soon as the ads are launched in full mode and allow Telegram to cover its main costs.
