Google’s upcoming Fuchsia OS will support Android apps

10% happier

Earlier past year, Netflix also removed in-app subscription sign-ups in its Android app on Google Play. What matters here is that the entire collection of Android apps available in Google Play will be compatible with any Fuchsia device. This combines with the work that Google is doing in making sure that Android apps' user interfaces adapt automagically to multiple form factors, from smartphones to foldable devices to tablets to laptops.

As reported by 9to5Google, citing a change to the Android Gerrit, Fuchsia will use a specially designed version of the Android Runtime (as indicated by "ART" in the image below) to run Android apps. It also takes quite a long time to develop new OS versions, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Apple were in the early stages of developing iOS 13 at the same time it was preparing to unveil 12 at WWDC 2018.

Yesterday Google confirmed that you will be able to run Android apps straight on its next-generation operating system Fuchsia.

Many of you are probably not as familiar with the Google Fuchsia OS, and are wondering why is it being mentioned so frequently in news. According to the latest set of codes, the Fuchsia OS is supposed to run Android apps. While some reports indicate that it could replace Android, some reports suggest that it will be entirely different.

So Google is making sure it's not making the same mistake with Fuchsia that Microsoft did with Windows Phone.

This will be a.far file, the Fuchsia's equivalent of Android's APK packages.

Google already released that toolkit back in February in beta version, with the first final version of Flutter arriving a few weeks ago. We are hoping that Fuchsia will become official in 2019, and that users will be able to start using it, but who knows, we'll just have to wait and see what will happen.
