Google’s upcoming Fuchsia OS will support Android apps

More details on Google's Android OS replacement revealed Google's Fuchsia OS will seemingly support Android apps

As spotted by 9to5Google, Google has a new change in Android's Gerrit source code. This unique version of ART will be installable on Fuchsia OS devices using a.far file (which looks to be Android's equivalent of an APK file). It rarely happens that there's a new operating system kernel is being developed as it requires tons of work.

Although there is no official announcement that Google is actively working on its Fuchsia OS besides repositories available on Github, on Google Git, and the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), everyone knows by now that the new OS will most probably be able to run on anything from mobile phones to computers and IoT devices. By the fact it will run Android applications, Fuchsia will join the likes of Chrome OS, which is capable of doing the same thing.

"These targets are used to build ART for Fuchsia". All in all, Fuchsia is still a mystery for the most part, even though we've already seen some graphical representations of the OS have been shown, well, parts of it. Dubbed as "Fuchsia", the new mobile platform is expected to replace Android. Well, the answer to that question is... nobody knows, except maybe a few people over at Google.

But however bold and big this project will get before commercially materializing, wide-scale adoption is going to be tricky to pull off, which is why Fuchsia absolutely needs to be compatible with the large number of Android apps out there.

What is Google Fuchsia OS?

There's also mention of ART on Fuchsia supporting ARM64 and x86 architecture, which backs up rumors that the new OS will work on multiple devices such as PCs and tablets.

Previously, we wrote about two Fuchsia repositories that Google had added to AOSP.

Overall, this development means Fuchsia devices will run Android apps.
