Fuchsia, Google’s long-developed operating system, is one step closer to working on real devices, as its Bluetooth list shows the Nest Hub running “Fuchsia 1.0”.
For years, we have been following Fuchsia’s gradual progress, from the incredibly innovative operating system UI to a more secure and efficient barebone experience. All the time, Google has been testing Fuchsia on consumer devices such as the Google Pixelbook, Nest Hub, and Nest Hub Max. Start the “launch” cycle.
Tonight, Fuchsia has taken one step closer to being one of the limelight as new Google devices are listed in the Bluetooth special interest group ̵1; or more accurately, that is. old Received the equipment Again– On the list, a new listing is for the 2018 Google Home Hub device, which was later renamed “Google Nest Hub”, not the “Nest Hub 2nd Gen” released this year.
However, instead of running on a regular Cast platform, this Nest Hub has a “Software Version Number” of “Fuchsia 1.0” considering the Fuchsia release cycle this “1.0” could refer to the initial “M1” release, or it could be just a “software version number”. A placeholder for “Product Site”. Google has included a link to Fuchsia’s Bluetooth documentation.
This isn’t the first time Fuchsia has appeared at a Bluetooth SIG, along with the operating system’s Bluetooth software code-named “Sapphire”, approved in the middle of last year. In fact, the list of Nest Hubs running Fuchsia today is a reference to the previous Sapphire listing.
If you’ve been hoping to try Fuchsia on your own Nest Hub hardware, you’re out of luck. Retail units have a security measure that prevents unsigned software from being installed unless Google makes an official Fuchsia for the Nest Hub, which is a possibility, albeit a certain size. But your smart display will only be able to run the Cast software currently used.
But it might be more than likely that Google will use a limited edition Nest Hub hardware specially adapted for developers to try out Fuchsia OS and test the app on real devices. Considering the list of Bluetooth only appearing today, and with the typical speeds that Fuchsia has developed so far, we probably haven’t seen this type of developer option arriving for at least a few more months.
