Google's Fuchsia OS will seemingly support Android apps

Despite clear evidence that Android apps will be compatible with Google'sFuchsia OS, there are still a lot of questions surrounding the means through which they will be able to run on the new operating system.
It was last month when two new repositories were added to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) manifest that pertained to Fuchsia OS.
The fact that neither has been completely successful in doing so means the odds would be stacked against Fuchsia, but if they do get it right, would be a realisation of a holy grail in computing - able to work across chipsets and form factors.
A file posted on the Android Open Source Project suggests that the search giant is implementing a specially made version of Android Runtime (ART) - the architecture used by the apps - in the upcoming operating system, as previously reported by 9to5Google.
Unfortunately, the README doesn't explain how Fuchsia will use ART from there. All in all, Fuchsia is still a mystery for the most part, even though we've already seen some graphical representations of the OS have been shown, well, parts of it.
We also know that Fuchsia OS will not be running on a modified version of the Linux kernel, the new operating system will use a custom microkernel dubbed Zircon which is derived from Little Kernel, an OS initially developed for embedded devices. Fuchsia first surfaced back in 2016 as a project that appeared on GitHub.
While any further information on Fuchsia and Android integration isn't available, it would be safe to assume that Google intends to launch Fuchsia OS in the future in such a manner that it doesn't suffer the fate of Windows Mobile. Fuchsia's user interface and applications are written with Flutter, which is a software development kit which allows cross-platform development abilities for the OS.
