Nest Hub Max could be Google’s second smart display to support Fuchsia

Nest Hub Max could be Google's second smart display to support Fuchsia

As per a comment on the Fuchsia Gerrit, Google is testing dogfood builds of the operating system on “Sherlock,” which is the code name for the Nest Hub Max. Further corroborating this, the company has confirmed to 9to5Google that testing has started. Here, “f6” refers to Fuchsia’s latest milestone release, version 6. The Fuchsia update to the original Nest Hub wasn’t particularly huge — Google stayed pretty quiet about it, even as it was released. Honestly, most owners probably didn’t notice that anything happened at all, as the update didn’t change any functionality, or even the UI, since the smart display experience is just built on top using Flutter. Chances are, we’ll be looking at a similar situation with the Nest Hub Max.

When asked to identify two Google operating systems, most people will probably stop at two: Android on smartphones and Chrome OS on laptops. But only a certain type of Google fanatic will remember Fuchsia. The illusive operating system was initially discussed as a type of Android alternative, and after a lot of low-key development, it ultimately appeared on first-generation Nest Hub smart screens without much fanfare. It’s now on its way to additional Google smart-home devices, beginning with the Nest Hub Max.

This would become the second retail device to run Fuchsia once the update leaves testing and begins rolling out to people’s devices. We may eventually see Fuchsia on laptops and smartphones at some point in the future, but for now, we’ll have to settle for smart displays.
