Fuchsia and the future of Android

If you follow a lot of Android news, odds are, you’ve heard at least something about a mysterious Google project known as Fuchsia. And odds are, you’re at least somewhat confused about what it actually is and what it’s intended to do.

Let me assure you: You aren’t alone.

Fuchsia, for the uninitiated, is an “early-stage experimental project” within Google. It’s been under development since at least 2017 — and it’s open source, which means anyone can peek at the code and even install the software on certain devices. (Pro tip: You can actually check it out from your browser right now, too, thanks to an independently created Fuchsia web demo. Fair warning, though: There’s really not much to it.)

Google describes Fuchsia as “a new operating system” designed for “modern phones and modern personal computers with fast processors, non-trivial amounts of RAM with arbitrary peripherals doing open-ended computation.” Right.
