Google's next OS, Fuchsia, will run Android apps

What reportedly started off as an arguably ambitious Android-replacing experiment may have gradually evolved into an even bolder bid to merge and take over from every single software platform powering Google-made devices, including Chrome OS and the unnamed operating system of the company's smart speakers and smart displays.

Forward-looking: We've known for a while now that Google is working on the eventual successor to Android: Fuchsia OS. As reported by 9to5Google, the operating system will be running Android apps using Android Runtime (ART) platform, which is being used now to run Android apps in smartphones.

As spotted by 9to5Google, a change to the Android Open Source Project suggests Fuchsia will be able to run Android apps using the Android Runtime.

Philbin went 2-2 at the reins, taking over after his predecessor, Mike McCarthy, was relieved of his duties on December 2. Flores, 37, has spent his entire coaching career with the Patriots , joining the team has a scouting assistant in 2004.

Google won't abandon support for its old apps when it moves to a new OS, a report says.

Looks like Google won't make your Android apps obsolete whenever it switches to the Fuchsia operating system. Fuchsia OS' ability to run Android apps hardly comes as a surprise for anyone as it has the largest app market and is the largest mobile OS in the world. What matters here is that the entire collection of Android apps available in Google Play will be compatible with any Fuchsia device. That means you shouldn't have any issues switching to the first smartphones or tablets running Fuchsia out of the box, as you'll be able to install all the apps you've been using on Android for years, including paid apps.
