Google is committed to advancing racial equity for Black communities. See how.

Overview

Fuchsia is a new open source operating system created at Google that is currently under active development. We are building Fuchsia from the kernel up to meet the needs of today’s growing ecosystem of connected devices.

Fuchsia is still evolving rapidly, but the underlying principles and values of the system have remained relatively constant throughout the project. The core architectural principles guiding Fuchsia’s design and development are: secure, updatable, inclusive, and pragmatic.

Secure

All software that runs on Fuchsia receives the least privilege it needs to perform its job, and gains access only to information it needs to know.

Updatable

Much like the web, software on Fuchsia is designed to come and go as needed, and security patches can be pushed to all products on demand.

Inclusive

Fuchsia is an open source project that currently supports a variety of languages and runtimes, including C++, Web, Rust, Go, Flutter, and Dart.

Pragmatic

Fuchsia is not a science experiment, it’s a production-grade operating system that must adhere to fundamentals, like performance.
