Google is preparing to bring the Fuchsia OS to additional smart devices of various shapes other than smart displays, according to a number of companies. job listings.
Fuchsia OS is the search giant’s latest operating system released earlier this year for the first generation of Nest Hub devices.
And there has been a lot of speculation about the company’s plans for Fuchsia OS. Which unlike Android and Chrome OS does not use the Linux kernel, but rather uses a small kernel called Zircon instead.
The search giant’s goal remains somewhat ambiguous despite the system becoming public more than five years ago. And when it came to the Nest Hub, it was functionally almost identical to the software that preceded it.
New job listings offer some clues as to what’s next for Fuchsia OS. And Google now appears to have a team called Fuchsia Devices working on the operating system, which gives some indication of the importance of the software internally.
The job listing states that this team is responsible for ensuring that the Fuchsia OS platform can be successfully delivered across real-world products that make a difference for the company’s users.
Meanwhile, this same list indicates that the search giant is working to bring Fuchsia OS to additional smart devices of a different shape.
This confirms that there are new devices under development for the operating system other than smart displays. This is not surprising, given that it was previously reported that Fuchsia OS might power the smart speakers.

There is no mention of new forms of devices. But there is another functionality list (which has since been removed) that states that the devices feature Chromecast, video conferencing, and machine learning capabilities.
The mention of Chromecast likely refers to devices that allow you to cast a video from another device for playback. This is instead of dedicated Chromecast devices that plug into the back of the TV.
And there is a hint that Fuchsia OS can work or interact with non-search giant devices. The company requires someone to ensure that Fuchsia OS delivers maximum value to partners and products based on Fuchsia OS.
Google has a long history of working with partners to bring its software to non-owned devices. It has previously partnered with companies such as JBL and Lenovo with Smart Displays.
