On the Bluetooth SIG site, the product sheet, the Google Home Hub, indicates that it runs under Fuchsia 1.0. Several explanations are possible.
The OS developed by Google, Fuchsia, seems closer to deployment than you might think. In February, we already learned that it was starting to reach a fairly advanced level of development, since it was starting to be tested internally, no doubt to test its flaws and bugs. Here it is resurfacing on the site of the Bluetooth SIG organization, which is responsible for establishing the standard of the same name, and in version 1.0 please. The file for a new product, still available for consultation, called Google Home Hub, indicates that it is running on “Fuchsia 1.0”.
Weird fact: the product listed is called Google Home Hub, the name of the Google Nest Hub, released in 2018, before being renamed. Note also that this is not the 2nd generation Nest Hub tested in our columns at the end of March.
Remember that this appearance of version 1.0 does not necessarily mean that the Google OS is about to be deployed. 1.0 can be a simple « placeholder » for example. It can also be a future branch of the project which will be called M1. The version called F1, dedicated to developers, would also not be very far from the release.
Moreover, this is not the first time that a product running under Fuchsia has pointed the tip of its nose to Bluetooth SIG. Last year, a device with the enigmatic name of “Sapphire” also appeared on the organization’s website.
But what is Fuchsia anyway?
Since August 2016, Google has been developing an OS based on a microkernel, which therefore promises to be light and fast. This OS is intended to be launched as much on low-power devices, such as connected watches, smartphones or computers.
While Fuchsia was initially developed largely in open source, since 2018, Google has decided to turn off the tap and continue to develop its new OS internally. This does not prevent a few bits of information from coming out from time to time.
