It has long been known that the new operating system that Google is developing, Fuchsia, will be compatible with Android apps, that is, it can run Android apps directly. It’s not easy for any company to launch a very successful system like Android, even for Google.

The success of the new operating system naturally requires a lot of application support, so Google’s ChromeOS support for Android applications is also the truth.

Fuchsia is compatible with Android apps

For Google, the new Fuchsia operating system is compatible with Android apps, and directly access the Android platform for massive applications and developers are not worried about ecological issues.

A few days ago, in the Android source code library, developers found two libraries related to Fuchsia. Simply put, the new system uses ART to run Android applications. ART or Android Runtime allows files in .FAR format to be installed on the system. The FAR format is equivalent to the APK application format of the Android platform.

At the same time, Fuchsia will also use Android Runtime to install Android apps, making the new system compatible with .APK but Android will not be compatible with .FAR.

A lot of news about Fuchsia is just rumour, the only thing that can be determined is that Google has been developing Fuchsia and adding code to the system. It is inferred that Fuchsia is likely to replace Android, Fuchsia is compatible with PCs, smartphones, tablets, IoT devices and many other platforms. Let us wait and see.
