Some Google Nest Hubs owners say 'what the fuchsia?' after colorful update

The Google Nest Hub is a few years old at this point, but the smart display recently popped up in the news when it became the first consumer device to run Fuchsia OS. However, if your Nest Hub is using the fuchsia color a bit too generously, know that it's not a part of the update — it's a bug.

Google's Nest Hub is getting a new OS you probably won't be able to spell

After being in development for years, Google's Fuchsia OS is finally ready to be used in a consumer product. Over the coming months, it will be rolled out to the first-gen Nest Hub. You needn't fret or get excited about the update since you'll barely be able to notice any difference when your device transitions to it.

Huawei reveals HarmonyOS, its cross-platform Android replacement with a Fuchsia-like architecture

Huawei reveals HarmonyOS, its cross-platform Android replacement with a Fuchsia-like architecture

Huawei has been caught in the middle of the US-China trade disagreements, with the US restricting the company from accessing its market and incorporating American technology into its products, like Android. While the US administration decided to soften its tone towards the Chinese technology producer and allow it to work with US partners again, the company is still hanging in limbo. That's probably one reason among others why Huawei has been rushing to have a replacement ready. The company has announced its open-source HarmonyOS during its developer conference today. For now, it's mainly meant to run on devices other than smartphones.

Official Fuchsia developer site goes live

Official Fuchsia developer site goes live

Google has been silently working on a new operating system called "Fuchsia" for years, with details, rumors, and wild speculation swirling through the blogosphere every time some new tidbit trickles out. Yesterday Google pushed up an official documentation site at fuchsia.dev, with instructions and details that can help developers play with the early operating system and its software. It appears to be the same info that was previously available at the Fuchsia Git, but with better formatting, and at a verifiably Google-owned domain (according to ICANN's WHOIS).

Google working to bring JavaScript app support to Fuchsia

Google's in-development Fuchsia operating system has been slowly taking shape over the past three years. It appears to be designed for both mobile and desktop devices, with a real-time kernel and a unique interface. We already know languages like Google Dart and Apple's Swift will be supported by Fuchsia, but now it seems JavaScript might be joining the party.

Google's Fuchsia OS reportedly being worked on by 100+ engineers, could ship on phones within five years

It has been nearly two years since the first evidence of Google's 'Fuchsia' operating system surfaced. It uses the 'Zircon' real-time kernel in place of Linux, and is being designed to run on everything from embedded devices to laptops. There has been speculation for years that Fuchsia is a possible Android replacement, and a new report from Bloomberg seems to confirm that.

Ars Technica's Ron Amadeo shows off Fuchsia OS running on a Pixelbook

Ars Technica's Ron Amadeo shows off Fuchsia OS running on a Pixelbook

Fuchsia OS, Google's operating system that's neither Android nor Chrome OS, is gradually becoming more and more functional. The open-source OS which Google really doesn't want to talk about has recently added support for the Pixelbook as a test device, and now AP alumnus and Ars Technica editor Ron Amadeo has managed to get it working on one.

Work on Fuchsia first began in the first half of 2016 and has progressed at a steady pace. We had a first glimpse of the OS in action a few months back, and while it was still very rough around the edges, it was enough to get a general feel of the new 'Armadillo' UI.

The Pixelbook is being used to test Google's Fuchsia OS

For over a year, Google has been developing an operating system named 'Fuchsia,' designed to run across a wide array of devices. The company hasn't said anything publicly about it, but it is entirely open-source, so development on the project has been transparent. Simply put, we can see what Google is working on, but we don't know what it will actually be used for.

Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for Apple's Swift programming language

Google's in-development operating system, named 'Fuchsia,' first appeared over a year ago. It's quite different from Android and Chrome OS, as it runs on top of the real-time 'Zircon' kernel instead of Linux. According to recent code commits, Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for the Swift programming language.
