But while Google hasn't taken pains to hide this third operating system, it also hasn't said much about it. To give you two examples is one is we have this ANGLE driver on Q and the idea is that we have a module-it's a mainline module-and it implements OpenGL ES 2.0, just finishing that off, and soon 3.0 and it runs on top of Vulkan, and we actually developed that with Fuchsia because Fuchsia uses Vulkan at the base level for graphics, like Android is migrating to. But Google is finally talking about Fuchsia, the Android slayer that was promised - and they call it Fuchsia too.
Fuchsia might be created to run on devices like smart home devices, wearables or virtual reality devices. It's only a rough demo, though, and does not really offer anything of substance, either about the OS or Google's goal.More news: Thyssenkrupp abandons plans to merge with India's Tata
The senior VP thinks that "there's a lot of room for multiple operating systems with different strengths and specializations", further suggesting that Fuchsia could operate as the third wheel. 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, ' he said, per The Verge Fuchsia is really not about that. "Fuchsia is really not about that". After all, thousands of Android apps are already running successfully on so many phones across the globe and trying to port them all to a brand new operating system is no easy task. But he didn't clarify what is the goal of the new OS exactly then. The experimental OS is mainly another OS that "may be optimized for certain other form factors as well". So, we could potentially see it on things like VR headsets or smart home devices, or anything else.More news: This Mother's Day, let's stop celebrating 'sacrifices' and 'unconditional' love
Later on during the event, Lockheimer provided some more context, pointing to the Internet of Things category, according to 9To5Google.
He continued: "It's not just phones and PCs".More news: India is going forward with an antitrust case against Google’s Android
Even so, the executive said that Fuchsia is being thought of as a universal system that adapts to the most diverse devices. "Fuchsia is one of those things and so, stay tuned". And more than Android and Chrome OS, it seems to be meant to be on any and all different forms of devices. In other words, it's going to be completely new but developer from the lessons Google gained from its time with Android and Chrome.
