Andromeda - Google's Upcoming Operating System : What to expect


Google is working on a new operating system which merges
Android and Chrome into a unified font. The term And roid
and Chrome merge to form ‘Andromeda,’ which, coincidentally is also a name for a galaxy that’s is a collision that is
predicted to happen in 4 billion years between the two biggest galaxy – Milky Way (contains the Earth and the Solar
System) and Andromeda Galaxy....

Andromeda is a new operating system that is expected to be
launched in late 2017.

Google’s key motivation behind the merging is because of the
ongoing struggle with laptop and tablet market share.

Google’s Android has been successfully installed on 86
percent of smartphones. However, when we go to the tablets
, Google is not faring as well. It holds 66 percent of the tablet OS market.

We expect the Andromeda operating system to have one of
greatest impact on Google’s tablets and laptops. Google has
consistently tried to solve their main problem (low market
share on the laptop and tablet market share) by letting users
install Android applications on Chromebooks. Unfortunately,
these applications suffer from the same issue – the interfaces
are not optimized for large displays.

.
The only way Google can solve this problem is by launching
big-screen applications for the laptops and tablets. Then, in
case Android and Chrome OS are one, the Andromeda tablets
benefits of being able to run applications that were designed
for laptops.

According to developers, Andromeda will be a strain for a
long period because of the likelihood of rewriting their apps
so that they can take full advantage of the new features and
the abilities that will come with the new OS.
Google’s CEO had recently said that the mobile would finally
‘blend’ with the desktop.

Here are some factors that prove that the Android and
Chrome merge might really happen:

1. The disappearance of the Google’s Chromebook Pixel.
Chrome Pixel was a huge seller and its presence had
always served an important purpose for Google.
2. The Google’s Pixel C convertible Android tablet is
rumored to be have tested with an operating system
resembling the Chrome OS.
3. The Presence of Android application of Chromebooks.
4. The rumored price of the Pixel phones – $650 – at the
base level. This figure seems somehow surprising.

Google isn’t a company that makes huge profits by
selling only hardware. Assuming the price is correct, we
expect the presence of something unusual with dual-
purpose abilities.
Despite all the recent leaks, there is no doubt that more
pieces related to this puzzle are yet to be uncovered.
