Google Is Developing 'Microfuchsia' System, a Streamlined FuchsiaOS

TapTechNews July 6th news, the tech media AndroidAuthority tweeted yesterday (July 5th) indicating that Google is developing the microfuchsia system, which is a streamlined version of Google's FuchsiaOS and can run on NestHub devices.

Google, in addition to Android and ChromeOS, has been continuously developing a third system named FuchsiaOS. There are currently many speculations about this system, and one of the viewpoints recognized by the mainstream media is that it will replace the Android system in the future.

Similar to Android and ChromeOS, FuchsiaOS is also an open-source system. However, the former two are based on the Linux kernel, while the latter is based on Zircon.

Google claims that the Zircon architecture consists of the kernel, a small number of user-space services, drivers, and the libraries required for core system functions such as booting. It contains only a few core functions, which can reduce the amount of trusted code running in the system and improve security and stability.

TapTechNews citing sources claims that Google has been continuously developing a new project named microfuchsia since April this year, mainly through virtualization to allow Fuchsia to start on existing devices.

Google says that microfuchsia is a Fuchsia operating system build version for virtual machines, aiming to start through virtualization solutions such as QEMU and pKVM.
