Google Andromeda: Finally, Android-Chrome OS integrated?

April 5, 2022 0 Comments

Google’s hardware Extravaganza is set for October 4, where new Pixel phones are expected to be the title of the show. Now, according to a recent report from Android Police, in addition to the new phone and a 4K Chromecast, Google may also unveil a new operating system that will seemingly fill long-standing rumors between Chrome OS and Android. The new operating system, internally known to Google as Andromeda, is expected to be teased on October 4, and is also a large-scale project, given how much Google is trying to keep it silent and hyped.

The Android Police “assures” that the project Andromeda is, in fact, quite real, and if Google chooses to show it on October 4, we are actually seeing a very important moment in the history of technology. For one, it would signal the end of Chrome OS as a standalone operating system, and Android itself would bring a huge library of applications across a wide range of devices. Recently, Hiroshi Lockheimer tweeted that October 4 will see an announcement that will be as important as the announcement of Android eight years ago, which somewhat further confirms the Andromeda launch.

In line with that, Google may be announcing a new, 7-inch tablet this day. The word is not out yet, but it will be interesting to see how this tablet works with the launch of a new OS. Most would expect it to run on stock Android, but Google would not be blamed for an unveiling in the new OS. However, the new operating system will probably only be highlighted at the event and will not be launched commercially.

This could be an important moment in the history of Google and Android, because the biggest thing that can happen from Android to Android. The mobile operating system has gone from disrupting the market share of Symbian and BB OS to the most used operating system worldwide, and although steady improvements have been made every year, Andromeda could bring a new breath to Android. It could prove to be a single operating system providing vertical integration of similar services across different devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops, which in turn could go a long way in changing the device ecosystem under Google.

With the release of the Nexus phones, and the fact that Google has finally developed its own hardware, it makes it even more understandable to have Andromeda in your sleeve. We can’t wait for October 4th!
