Over the years, it has been discovered that Google is working on a new operating system called Fuchsia. The platform is meant to be used on multiple platforms such as phones, tablets, and other smart devices. It debuted on the original Nest Hub smart display, and now it looks like Google is gearing up to push it to the Nest Hub Max hardware.
This will make the Nest Hub Max the second device from Google to run on the new operating system. That’s according to 9to5Google who spotted a comment on the icon change in Fuchsia, and Google later confirmed that it had begun testing Fuchsia on the Nest Hub Max.
However, the testing is done via the Dogfooding app, which is essentially a term that indicates the company has started using the software itself internally. As the post notes, it’s one of the last steps for internal testing among Google employees, including those who were not directly involved in the project, before Google makes it public.
When Google updated the original Nest Hub with Fuchsia, it was more to prove that it could be used to replace the Linux-based operating system the company had previously used. There were some issues arising, as expected with new software, but they were eventually resolved. Google has been working on Fuchsia for years, so it will be interesting to see if this update to the Nest Hub Max could be a sign of bigger things to come.
