Google has spilt some beans about the secret OS it has bee working for over 3 years now. Dubbed as Fuchsia, the new operating system from Google is touted to be the unified platform that may power all kinds of devices, be it mobile, desktop or futuristic IoT products.

In the recently concluded Google I/O 2019, a senior executive from Google talked briefly about Fuchsia – the new Google OS that could possibly replace Android and Chrome OS in the future.

In the past, there were reports about Google testing the new operating system on various products including Pixelbook and Google Home Hub – now renamed as Nest Hub.

In the recent Google I/O conference, a senior executive from Google didn’t shy away from revealing the ultimate goal of Fuchsia.

“Fuchsia is about just pushing the state of the art in terms of operating systems and things that we learn from Fuchsia we can incorporate into other products,” Lockheimer said.

He, however, refuted the claims that Google new OS is developed with a sole objective of providing a better experience to mobile or desktop users, or to provide a unified experience of Mobile and Desktop. Earlier, there were reports about the new OS could replace Android in the upcoming Google Pixel devices.

He clarified that Fuchsia is about much beyond all of that.

We’re looking at what a new take on an operating system could be like. And so I know out there people are getting pretty excited saying, ‘Oh this is the new Android,’ or, ‘This is the new Chrome OS, Lockheimer said.

Indeed, the new OS by Google might be catering to new age products like smart home devices, wearables or even AR/VR devices in future.

He emphasized on the fact that Android is working really work on smartphones and tablets. But he didn’t clarify what is the purpose of the new OS exactly then. He also mentioned that Fuchsia may be optimized for many other form factors, which is still under experiment.

All said and done, Lockheimer has played the shot. While he didn’t specifically mention what the new OS Fuchsia is developed for especially, it’s certain that Google has set its eyes on devices from the future.

What Google is up to with the new OS Fuchsia, it still a mystery. But, don’t be surprised if no operating system comes out from the Google factory. Companies, at the scale of Apple and Google, afford to develop tens of products that are never released.
