Google Rolls Out Fuchsia To First-Gen Nest Hub Devices

Google announced on Wednesday that it has started pushing out a silent upgrade to its new Fuchsia operating system on first-gen Nest Hub devices.

Google formally released Fuchsia in May after many years of effort to develop a “not Linux” operating system from scratch.

The OS was previously made available to some devices enrolled in a preview program back in May which unlike Android isn’t based on Linux and uses a microkernel called Zircon.

The first device to receive the new OS was Google’s 2018 smart display, the Nest Hub — not to be confused with the second generation Nest Hub with sleep tracking released earlier this year — taking it permanently off of the existing Linux based “Cast OS” without negatively affecting the UI or experience.

Google has confirmed that all first-gen devices should be running Fuchsia already or very soon and the new firmware update for non-preview Nest Hub devices includes the Fuchsia upgrade.

To know if your device is already running an entirely new operating system “Fuchsia,” check the “About device” section of the settings menu, and even then the OS isn’t mentioned by name.
