Google's Fuchsia will run Android apps, thank flip

  • Google's Fuchsia OS will likely support Android apps whenever it materializes

What reportedly started off as an arguably ambitious Android-replacing experiment may have gradually evolved into an even bolder bid to merge and take over from every single software platform powering Google-made devices, including Chrome OS and the unnamed operating system of the company's smart speakers and smart displays.

Although there is no official announcement that Google is actively working on its Fuchsia OS besides repositories available on Github, on Google Git, and the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), everyone knows by now that the new OS will most probably be able to run on anything from mobile phones to computers and IoT devices.

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. Fuchsia will essentially utilize a specially designed version of the Android Runtime (ART), in order to run Android apps. It is also worth noting that last month, two Fuchsia-related repositories were spotted in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) manifest, the first of which contains a pre-built copy of the Fuchsia SDK, while the second seems to be some sort of a device that could be used by the Android Emulator in order to run Fuchsia.

"These targets are used to build ART for Fuchsia".

So, What Is Fuchsia And When Is It Coming?

The Bruins were defeated 94-78 by No. 7 North Carolina Tar Heels in the Las Vegas Invitational Third Place Game on November 23rd. He played for four years on the school's basketball team from 1993 to 1997, including winning the NCAA title with them in 1995.

Even so, rumors are thin on the ground, and the reality is that we just don't know when the new operating system will be launched.

However, letting people continue to use their Android apps would certainly make a transition to the new OS easier.

Overall, this development means Fuchsia devices will run Android apps.
