Do you know about Project Andromeda?

16 February, 2017 Google


If you are thinking about the upcoming Mass Effect game, then you probably do not know about Google's ongoing work where the internet giant is planning to bring the Chrome OS and the Android OS together as one. Although Google has not yet made it official, Project Andromeda is very much alive and probably has the alternate name of Fuchsia.


Fuchsia will expand Google's reach to devices of all kind; be it fully-fledged computers or advanced mobile devices. If you are wondering whether Android will be discontinued in the wake of this new OS, it won't be, at least not exactly anyway! Although Andromeda will eventually replace Android as the base OS, the latter will probably be retained as a legacy API within the OS.


The main advantage which Fuchsia will bring over the Android OS is its ability to simultaneously provide updates to all devices running on it. It could potentially eliminate the Android fragmentation issues, ensuring better security and uniformity across multiple devices. Reports indicate that Google is testing out Andromeda on the next gen Qualcomm flagship SD 835 SoC. Whether that means the first Fuchsia powered device will be released in 2017 or not, remains to be seen.
