Google has been working on a new operating system which we still don’t have much information about. However, the interface is available for us to use and experience. Considering what we do know about Fuschia Considering what we do know about Fuschia so far has led many to speculate it is a possible replacement for Android OS and Chrome OS at some point in the future in an attempt to unify the aesthetic signature of all things Google. Obviously, this hasn’t been confirmed, and really, no one outside of Mountain View knows for certain what Google plans to do with Fuschia.
Kyle Bradshaw has outlined shared a method of pulling the main user interface from the Fuschia files initially shared on Github. An APK has been built which can be installed on most devices running Android.
You are going to have to begin by ensuring that unkown sources is enabled.
Once you've downloaded the Armadillo APK, tap the Download Complete notification which will prompt you to begin the installation process.
Run The UI
Once you've installed the Armadillo app, you may then just open it and see exactly what Fuchsia's main UI looks like at this point in development.
At first appearance, it shows a Google Now-style card-based interface that scrolls vertically, with several empty placeholder cards that you can tap. You can also swipe up from the bottom of this list view to access what looks like a Google Assistant interface, and everything has a nice Material Design animation when you interact with elements.
You have to remember though, at this stage of development, Armadillo only represents the SystemUI of a new operating system. The likelihood of the interface changing in the future exists, especially since Google has not been able to verify any information since the Github leak.
What's your take on Fuschia so far- will Google develop it any further or is it just another one of Google's failed projects? Share in the comments section below. Thank you for visiting Base64!
