Google's mysterious and somewhat secretive Fuchsia operating system raises some new eyebrows after being discovered in the Android RunTime (ART) segment of AOSP. For those who may not yet know, AOSP effectively serves as an open source foundation for Androids fundamentals. The obvious implication of this finding would be that this might suggest that Fuchsia will somehow be linked to Android. More specifically, this could mean that the operating system can run Android applications natively, much like Chrome OS. That would be a huge lead for Google, as the operating system was redeveloped from scratch – rather than based on a Linux kernel like Android and Chrome. It would effectively mean access to an extensive library of apps right outside the gate.
However, this does not necessarily indicate this and in fact may not mean much. This implies that Google would take it with Google or Android and Chrome OS for something new. More importantly, this could simply be part of building the central App SDK for Fuchsia called Flutter. This should be able to create apps running on both Android and iOS. This could easily become part of this effort as both types of apps could probably run on Fuchsia. This is especially the case if it is to serve as the operating system, which is optimized for development with Flutter.
This could really mean something to the newly discovered entries on the AOSP site. Google has done a great job finding any gaps or clues to what Fuchsia is hiding. This has surfaced online despite the trials and experimental variations. It is worth repeating for the time being that all of this should be taken with a grain of salt. With any luck, more information will be released at this year's Google I / O Developers Conference, which takes place from May 8 to May 10.
