We first heard about Fuchsia OS in 2016, when we learned that Americans were working on a new operating system. At that time, it seemed like an alternative to Android, perhaps merged with Chrome OS, but eventually it became known that it was a system for connected devices and they are the ones who already receive it.

In May of that same year, Fuchsia OS began arriving at the first model of the Google Nest Hub, the one launched in 2018, in small doses. The device started to be updated but the functionality remained intact, only changing the system shell. But visually, nothing has changed. Now Google has been encouraged to release the Fuchsia operating system for every Nest Hub on the market.

All Nest Hubs with Fuchsia OS now

With the arrival of Fuchsia, Google launched its first operating system that was not based on Linux, and it did so with the support of giants such as Samsung and Huawei. Today, Fuchsia OS is finally available for all Nest Hubs in circulation on the market and will be the operating system that will switch to new editions as soon as they are presented.

If you have a Google Nest Hub and you receive a notification of an available system update, be aware that this update includes a move from its old operating system to Fuchsia OS, as Google itself has. confirmed to 9to5Google, the well-known medium on Android devices. . . .

If you want to check the version and operating system of your Google Nest Hub, its manufacturer explains the method in a few simple steps:

We open the Google Home app on our mobile. We select the Nest Hub from the devices registered and connected in the app. Click “Settings” at the top. We go to “Device Information”. We are looking for “Technical Information” to find the firmware model. If all went well, the Nest Hub software should be version 1.52.260996.
