Google's Android Android system has been developed for more than 10 years, to do the world's largest mobile platform, however, Android many design and technology has been outdated, Google a few years ago to get a new Fuchsia OS system, was once seen to replace Android, but in the latest big layoffs in Google, Fuchsia department and suffered a serious blow.
Last week Google also announced the largest layoffs in its history, about 12,000 employees will leave the company, accounting for 6% of the global workforce.
Different departments are affected by the layoffs differently, but this wave of layoffs is a serious blow for the Fuchsia OS divisionWith 16% of the staff affected in a department of over 400 people, it was inevitable that system development would encounter various difficulties due to staffing issues.
At this rate, the hope of Fuchsia OS replacing Android is even slimmer.
From this layoff, it is clear that Google's internal outlook on Fuchsia OS is also somewhat pessimistic. This project has been highly expected for many years, but the actual performance is thunder but little rain, even if there are products using Fuchsia OS, they are mainly some smart home products, and there has been no promotion on smartphones to shake the position of Android.
