Advertisement In the future, FUCHSIA OS will appear in more nest hub models. Google has been developing a new operating system called Fuchsia for a number of years. As far as the general public was aware, the first progress was fairly slow. But last year, amid rumors that businesses like Samsung were aiding with the construction, the project began to gain momentum.
The first-generation Nest Hub (formerly Google Home Hub), which came pre-installed with Cast OS, received the Fuchsia OS update in August of last year. It was the first real-world product ever to be powered by the new OS. The Nest Hub Max was later updated by Google to Fuchsia. And it appears like it will continue. This OS upgrade will apparently also be made to the Nest Hub (2nd generation).
Google is also enhancing the platform at the same time. In order to support the Matter over Thread standard, the Nest Hub Max’s capacity to function as a bridge and range extender will be removed in the upcoming major upgrade for Fuchsia (version F7). As Google expands the availability of Fuchsia on additional devices, we anticipate further advancements.
