Google's Fuchsia OS will seemingly support Android apps

You won't have spunked a fortune away on Android apps if, as is rumoured, the forthcoming Fuchsia operating system replaces Android. Huawei may also be one of the first OEMs to use this system since it closely follows Fuchsia's development. Fuchsia OS' ability to run Android apps hardly comes as a surprise for anyone as it has the largest app market and is the largest mobile OS in the world.

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. This decision is key to the survival of Fuchsia OS after its launch.

So, What Is Fuchsia And When Is It Coming?

Forward-looking: We've known for a while now that Google is working on the eventual successor to Android: Fuchsia OS.

Google is very close to announcing this new system thus it could come at any time. Fuchsia first surfaced back in 2016 as a project that appeared on GitHub. Most of you are probably interested to know when will Fuchsia become official, and when will you be able to use it.

Overall, this development means Fuchsia devices will run Android apps. Google's plans regarding Fuchsia are a complete mystery at this point, as the company did not really talk about pre-installing this OS on any hardware or anything of the sort.

Although we don't know for certain what this mysterious new modular OS is for, it is becoming increasingly likely that it will be a replacement for both Android and Chrome, supporting the best of both worlds and now, it would seem, providing continuity for existing users. Google will, hopefully, share more info regarding the progress during its Google I/O 2019 later this year.
