Google is always pushing forward with new technology and new ways to use our existing technology. The company has been working on a new operating system called Fuchsia for some time now. It wasn’t known for sure if it would also have the capability to run Android apps as Chrome OS does. Well, it appears that Google will indeed allow Fuschia to run Android apps. It’s developing a special version of Android Runtime to allow Fuschia to run apps meant for Android devices.
A new file on the Android Open Source Project’s website mentions that “These targets are used to build ART for Fuchsia.” This means that a special version of Android Runtime is being developed for the OS.
“They differ from usual Android devices as they do not target specific hardware. They will produce a fuchsia package (.far file),” the file adds. This likely means that users will be able to install this version of Android Runtime on any device that’s powered by Fuschia. Google hasn’t offered many details about the operating system up to this point.
Earlier reports suggested that the OS will be cross-platform, so it will be able to run on PCs, tablets, and phones. It may even replace Chrome OS and Android one day.
