Google has been developing a new operating system, Fuchsia. Starting today, Google’s Fuchsia OS is now being developed more openly, including accepting contributions from the public.
Google quietly launched an official Fuchsia.dev website for the project, teaching developers how best to work on Fuchsia and, to a much lesser extent, how to make Fuchsia apps. All throughout the last four years, however, Fuchsia has been something of a skunkworks project, with Google remaining surprisingly quiet about its purpose.
As the company is making something of a splash with Fuchsia on the Google Open Source Blog, opening a call for developers to contribute to the project. In fact, this is the first formal announcement of the Fuchsia operating system’s existence and how Google plans to use it.
