As reported by several independent sources, Samsung is involved in the development of Fuschsia OS, and recent reports suggest the company is ready to ditch Android entirely and switch to the new system. Of course, such a shift would take years and the two systems would coexist for a long time. We cannot expect Samsung to take such a big risk overnight, because if Fuchsia OS does not work out, may bury the entire mobile department of the manufacturer.
The Nest Hub Max may soon be switched to Fuchsia — Google’s homegrown operating system as internal testing ramps up. Earlier this year, Google took the bold step of updating existing first-gen Nest Hub smart displays from their Linux-based Cast OS to the company’s long-in-development Fuchsia operating system.
At this point, there’s no way to know how long it will be before retail Nest Hub Max devices will be updated with Fuchsia, if at all. If things follow the pattern of the original Nest Hub, Fuchsia will be made available first to those in the Preview Program in the Google Home app.
