Could Fuchsia OS become an important OS in the future?

on Android Developers at Nov 29, 2017 13:40

These last days, we've seen how Google's Fuchsia OS, an operating system currently in development, will run Apple's coding language Swift. Will the use of the same coding language for iOS and Fuchsia OS make mobile app developing easier ? Is it a benefit for mobile app development companies using the same core language on two different platforms while developing an application?
Fuchsia OS's use is still unclear, but taking into account it is ready to run on devices with embedded screens, could this new OS become Google's bet on IoT? Or will it become another smartphone operating system fighting against iOS and Android, from the same company, just to have some market share on mobile OS?

In the upcoming days, you will be able to find an extended article on Fuchsia OS on AppFutura's blog. The article will analyse the still in development operating system to see how it could work once it is launched, and the possible benefits for mobile app developers Google's new OS could have.

Update [08/01/2018]: Google said that Fuchsia OS won't replace Android, but the thing is that Android App Developers can already test Fuchsia OS on a Pixelbook. Also we have to point out that mobile app development companies listed in AppFutura can develop any app for the new software as it is a software that will run Swift (iOS) and Android coding language.

Google is at it again. This time a new rivalry operating system, Google Fuchsia, is the subject. Unlike its predecessors Android and Linux, this OS is built on Zorcon, a new microkernel. This OS is purposefully created for embedded systems. Once it is officially launched, this could mean that the world of real-time activities will change drastically. It can run any digital device from phones to tablets, computers, house appliances and security systems. This means that competitors like Android, Linux and possibly windows will have a challenge at keeping up. Companies may just start using this OS on their new devices.

Google Fuchsia is fast, reliable and can be as light as 24KB. Functions like the internet of things where everything is interconnected will become easy to monitor. One will manage to track everything in their homes, workplaces, and automobiles if they have a Fuchsia enabled device. It will be possible to follow almost everything efficiently. This time saving operating system will have people saying goodbye to crashing systems due to heavy applications or phone traffic.

With the introduction of artificial intelligence in hospitals and government institutions, this OS will manage a majority of the tasks that do not need human contact via a virtual office. Mobile owners can start saying bye to drastic power decrease on their gadgets. Seeing that this OS is light, it will run on less power thus giving users fewer headaches related to the low battery.

Of course, just because you'll be able to compile Swift to run on Fuchsia doesn't mean you'll be able to instantly port any iOS app to Google's new OS when or if it ships.

While Apple has open sourced the Swift language itself, much of the iOS platform (like the UI stuff, for instance) is closed source, so code that relies on those closed Apple libraries won't be portable.

One possible future in a world where Fuchsia is an important and relevant platform for apps is that you write the "core logic" of your app in your language of choice — Swift, Go, Rust, JavaScript, etc. — and then you build a custom UI for each platform — Android, iOS, Fuchsia, Linux, Windows, the web — using the appropriate tools for each.

The alternative path could be the continued adoption of tools like Google's Flutter, or Facebook's React Native, which allow you to target multiple platforms with a single language like Dart (Google), or JavaScript (Facebook). There's even a cross-platform framework called SCADE that allows you to build iOS and Android apps in Swift.

It's great news if we talk about competitive spirit in a mobile field. Our opinion on this subject is that Google won't use this OS to take over mobile market. Because it's hard to persuade regular users that new one OS is more comfortable than Android for example. Mostly, they even don't know the difference between them. Google follows a matter of trial and error until the right solution or technology is found. It is possible that Google aims on terminals or Automated Teller Machines. It's so because they still work on Windows XP, and they often have malfunctions about it. So it's useful idea to create specialized and optimized OS for that purpose.

As I mentioned when we opened the thread, our article about Fuchsia OS is now published on our blog. We welcome all of you to read it and give more information that you think could be of interest to our community.

You will also find a final update at the end of the post, with the most interesting features some of you, as mobile app developers, have written in this thread before. You can check the post: The new OS of Google: Fuchsia OS.

Even though Fuchsia OS is still not launched and we do not really know what the OS will be used for, do you have any guesses? And would you develop mobile applications using Swift for iOS and Fuchsia OS to save time during the development process?

Built on Magenta, a medium-sized micro kernel, Google Fuchsia is an evolving pile of code forming an open-source operating system expected to run on a broad spectrum of devices. Google’s experiment with an entirely different operating system can be a strategic move towards designing IoT-based applications. The main purpose behind its creation is still not known but it can be Google’s answer to an entirely modern smartphone operating system. However, it is still in its early stage of development but we can expect to hear more details about it on the forthcoming Google I/O.
So, we wait for the next conference of Google to get fresh updates…

As we know Google Fuchsia is the real-time operating system (RTOS) intended to serve real-time applications that process data as it comes in.
We can define Fuchsia as a small operating system intended for embedded systems.
Since embedded systems are essentialy a part of every modern electronic component such as
microwave oven, washing machine, remote control, RFID tags, routers, modems, PDAs, mobile phones etc we can comfortably conclude a hugh help in IOT by Google Fuchsia.

We believe Fuchsia with SWIFT can help build real time applications which will help companies to code complex IOT scenarios and integrating with native mobile apps. Not in competition with Android or iOS as a operating system

There are some news regarding Google's Fuchsia OS. As it has been reported by Chrome Unboxed, Google is testing its new operating system in a Pixelbook. Since some days ago, Fuchsia OS was only eligible to be tested in two different devices, Intel’s NUC and Acer’s Switch Alpha 12 Chromebooks, but now it is also available to be tested on Google's own hardware. The new hardware makes doubting about the future of Fuchsia OS.
As it was published on our article: The new OS of Google: Fuchsia OS, everyone thought the operating system would be just focused on Internet of Things devices, and not for computers as we have recently seen published on different websites.
The other good news we are receiving from Google is that they just explained how to install and test Fuchsia OS on Google's Pixelbook. The problem though is that as it is not a typical developer OS, you need to use two machines, to host and to install the operating system on the computer.
Just to remember all the information about Fuchsia OS is available on our article and on this forum thread which will be updated with different news on the subject. We also invite everyone in this community to say their opinion about the news that we have learned from Fuchsia OS. Do you think it is a way for Google to sell more of its hardware? It is just a way to compete against Microsoft and macOS? Or even Tizen which is Samsung's OS focused on IoT devices like Smart TVs, smartwatches, as well as low-key end smartphones?

FInd here a video update about how Fuchsia actually works from ArsTechnica looks amazing!

After checking the video, I see that Fuchsia works on computers and mobiles, so there are two modes of running the OS. So interesting!
