Google’s upcoming Fuchsia OS will support Android apps

Netflix pulls Apple iTunes billing for new subscribers

Netflix pulls Apple iTunes billing for new subscribers

Ever since the first reports detailing this mysterious operating system came out, we heard that Fuchsia would run Android apps out of the box.

Although we don't know for certain what this mysterious new modular OS is for, it is becoming increasingly likely that it will be a replacement for both Android and Chrome, supporting the best of both worlds and now, it would seem, providing continuity for existing users. Earlier a year ago, Netflix also removed in-app subscription sign-ups in its Android app on Google Play. It will indeed have a special version of the ART, which can be installed on any Fuchsia OS running device.

What reportedly started off as an arguably ambitious Android-replacing experiment may have gradually evolved into an even bolder bid to merge and take over from every single software platform powering Google-made devices, including Chrome OS and the unnamed operating system of the company's smart speakers and smart displays.

Last month, two repositories related to the Fuchsia OS were added to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) manifest.

Furthermore, "New Year's Day set a new single-day record at more than $322 million", according to Schiller, helping "drive Services revenue to an all-time record in the holiday quarter".

So Google is making sure it's not making the same mistake with Fuchsia that Microsoft did with Windows Phone. This version of ART will be installable on any Fuchsia device using a.far file which is Fuchsia's equivalent of Android's APK. The latest version of its mobile operating system had a faster take-up rate than iOS 11 too.

Netflix is no longer allowing new customers to subscribe via iTunes using in-app purchase on their iPhone or iPad in order to avoid paying a 30% commission to Apple.
