Google Getting Rid of Android
Android is one of the most popular mobile operating system available, yet Google really did not utter the word "Android" on stage also when. That's something you would certainly anticipate from Samsung's keynotes, not Google's. The business didn't speak about Android Pie while providing the Pixel, as well as it didn't make use of words while informing the world that its latest Chrome OS tablet will certainly sustain millions of applications. Some might claim that, after many years of Android, it does not really matter if Google states it. But I would certainly differ. This isn't an error, it's a deliberate relocation from a firm with a massive advertising and marketing department.
Google did make plenty of recommendations to its software application throughout the occasion however made use of key words like "AI," "software program," as well as "Chrome OS" when explaining brand-new Pixel 3 and Pixel Slate attributes. "Android" didn't show up. Even Rick Osterloh's blog post regarding Google's new products does not include any type of Android referral, yet you'll locate Chrome OS therein.
Additionally, since it really did not intend to mention Android throughout its statement, Google really did not highlight one of the most important features of Pixel phones. Pixels are the only mobiles on the planet to obtain rapid Android updates.

A year later, Google might just be preparing for the post-Android globe, a future it's already constructing behind closed doors. Also appropriate is the truth that Google simply renamed the Android Messages app to something a lot easier: Messages. The Messages app would run on any kind of Google OS, not just Android.
What other OS could Google have? We have actually been speaking about it for some time now. It's called Fuchsia, a dynamic os that would deal with a range of tools, including smartphones, tablets, laptop computers, as well as various other kind aspects. Fuchsia would be a lot much easier for Google to update as well as would certainly sustain existing Android applications, numerous reports have disclosed. Also, making apps for Fuchsia, and also completing operating system, could be a great deal less complicated for developer going forward, according to various other reports.
We may still need to await a couple of years prior to Google introduces the OS that will change Android, and possibly Chrome, however it sure appears like Google rarely wants to speak about Android now.
