Google issued a brief statement saying that Fuchsia was only one of the company's "many experimental open source projects," but declined to comment further.
Bloomberg learned from the sources that the Fuchsia team's own engineers thought they could start with small goals, let the Fuchsia system land in the smart home devices such as Google Home smart speakers within three years, then enter the notebook, and finally the mobile phone. But Google has not confirmed when this technology might come out.
This may be a way for Google to create a single operating system for mobile phones, tablets and PCs that the company has been trying to do for the past many years; it is also possible to avoid prosecution in the future. Because the basic code of Fuchsia is different from Android. In addition, Google can also solve the fragmentation problem of Android system (that is, users can't expect Android phones to have the same function). This problem has plagued Google for many years.
But for Google, abandoning Android is not easy. According to a source, Bloomberg revealed that Google may not be so serious about this idea. The source said that this is a "project to retain senior engineers", designed to allow Google's talents to do something, so that they will not leave the company to switch to Google's competitors.
