For all intents and functions, this replace won’t change any of the performance of the Nest Hub, however below the hood, the good show will likely be operating Fuchsia OS as a substitute of the Linux-based “Forged OS” it used earlier than. In actual fact, your expertise with the Nest Hub needs to be basically equivalent. That is potential as a result of Google’s good show expertise is built with Flutter, which is designed to constantly deliver apps to a number of platforms, Fuchsia included.
