Earlier, it was rumored that the Fuchsia OS will be capable of running Android applications and now we have a confirmation for the same from Google.

Google Fuchsia will be the successor to Android.

We've been learning tidbits about Google's secret operating system, Fuchsia OS, for quite a while now, but there still hasn't been any official word from Google about what it will be used for.

Many of you are probably not as familiar with the Google Fuchsia OS, and are wondering why is it being mentioned so frequently in news. Apple now segments its iOS operating system distribution data into two charts, with one being focused on older iOS devices and the other consisting of iPhones and iPads released in the last four years.

Unsurprisingly, it looks like Fuchsia will be able to offer support for Android apps right off the bat, based on concrete evidence discovered by 9To5Google in Android's Open Source Project repositories. Fuchsia OS is envisioned to be able to run on universal devices (partly thanks to its kernel), including embedded systems, smartphones, tablets, and even personal computers.

The second clue about Fuchsia's destiny as an Android replacement is the fact that its graphical engine - codenamed Escher - has specific volumetric rendering code that will specifically help the Material Design UI, according to Ars Technica. And if you are a Windows Phone fan, you are probably very well aware of that. Apple's paid subscription revenue grew more than 60% in the past year to about $300 million as more than 30,000 apps started charging recurring fees, CEO Tim Cook said in a July conference call with investors. This decision is key to the survival of Fuchsia OS after its launch. This version of ART will be installable on any Fuchsia device using a.far file which is Fuchsia's equivalent of Android's APK.
