    Andromeda OS: The hybrid OS from Google Andromeda OS: The hybrid OS from Google

    Reports suggest that Google is working on a new hybrid OS which is a combination of Android and Chrome OS. The company will be ditching Chrome OS for the new spinoff Andromeda OS. It is expected that Google will unwrap Andromeda at the hardware event on October 4.

    "Google has mostly denied that this was happening, saying that they are still actively working on both Chrome OS and Android in separate forms. Even with Android apps arriving on Chromebooks in recent months, Google hasn’t admitted that they plan to do any of what the WSJ report claimed."

    So, it looks like Android is not dead, although Chrome OS may be.

    Andromeda OS: The hybrid OS from Google Andromeda OS: The hybrid OS from Google

    I think Google has been working on a new version of Chrome OS to allow running Android apps natively, as discussed on this thread earlierhttp://www.techsupportalert.com/free...ming-back.html

    Whether they will still call it Chrome OS, Andromeda (codename) or another name is yet to be seen. Or is Andromeda the next version or a step further than Chrome OS version 53, in which the Google Play Store is available for some Chromebooks.

    Maybe it will be clearer after the announcement in the coming Google's Made By Google event.

    Google is being too secretive about its recent projects. At least Andromeda appears to be clearer than Fuchsia (What's that about?) and, as you said, things on October 4th may be different than we initially thought.

    Hiroshi Lockheimer (@lockheimer) posted this tweet 4 days ago:

    "We announced the 1st version of Android 8 years ago today. I have a feeling 8 years from now we'll be talking about Oct 4, 2016."

    So more rumors began to spread:

    Despite the rumors, if Andromeda is to replace ChromeOS, or Android (or both), I hope it solves the most annoying issues with Android, such as fragmentation and hassle-free system updates.
