Google Pixel 3XL gets Fuchsia support thanks to a developer

22 January 2019 3

Google has been working on a new open source OS called Fuchsia since some time, however, as of now we only have limited information about the OS and its capabilities. One thing for sure is that both Android and Fuchsia at some point would cross their paths.

Since Fuchsia is also an open source operating system, Google has accepted a number of patches from Huawei and other third-party developers. Though there is not much information available for the public at the moment, however, an individual developer by the name Zhuowei Zhang has been able to bring initial support to Pixel 3 XL.


This Fuchsia support for Pixel 3 XL is just a start where the developer has been able to start the Zircon kernel and the Fuchsia virtual console on Pixel 3 XL. The Fuchsia project itself is at a nascent stage at the moment hence testing out an application or any other service is virtually impossible.

The current experiment of testing out the compatibility between Android and Fuchsia is successful and opens the door for a lot of opportunities for the upcoming OS from Google. Fuchsia is said to replace Android in the future, however, we do not know when.
