Nest Hub Max may soon run Fuchsia

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.
