Will Google replace Android? Not yet

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] Welcome to Alphabet City. This is the show that covers everything related to Alphabet, Inc, otherwise known as Google's parent company. I'm your guide, Iyaz Akhtar, and you are the wonderful audience. Today we are talking about Google getting into trouble. Loon getting a deal and the potential depth of the note. But first let's talk operating systems. First of Fuchsiaville. [MUSIC] Remember project fusion, that's the mysterious operating system by Google that runs on the phones and laptops. It's not android and it's not Bloomberg published a report that says Fuchsia is a plan to create quote a single operating system capable of running all the company's in-house gadgets, like Pixel phones and smart speakers. The goal for Fuschia would be to replace Android in about five years. But a roadmap for Fuschia is not concrete. CNET says there is no five year plan yet. Google gave us a statement and said Fuchsia is just, quote, "one of many experimental open-source projects" unquote. So is Android dying soon? Yeah, probably not. Next stop is the First National of Alphabet. [MUSIC] Google got hit with a massive $5 billion fine by the European Union. The European Commission says Google has committed illegal practices regarding Android mobile devices to strengthen dominance of Google's search engine. Here's what the EC's statement says. In particular, Particular, Google has required manufacturers to pre-install the Google Search app and browser app, Chrome, as a condition for licensing Google's app store, the Play Store. Made payments to certain large manufacturers and mobile network operators On condition that they exclusively pre-install the Google search app on their devices, and has prevented manufactures wishing to pre-install Google apps from selling even a single smart mobile device running on alternative versions of android That were not approved by Google, so called android forks. The commission decision concludes that Google is dominant in the market for general internet search services, licensable smart mobile operating systems and app stores for the Android mobile operating system. The statement also says that Apple's devices can not indirectly constraint Google's market power. The EC says Google has 90 days to change their behaviour or be penalized up to 5% of the average daily world wide turn of alphabet. So Google issued a response like they're very serious company that it is In a tweet. Google Europe tweeted Android has created more choices for everyone, not less. Blah, blah, blah. We will appear the Commission's decision. #Androidworks. Google CEO Sundar Pichai penned a much lengthier post on the Google Blog. It also features the hashtag Android works. Next stop, Android Avenue. [MUSIC] According to the Bell Samsung is considering merging the Galaxy S+ and Galaxy Note lines. The report says Samsung has been kicking around the idea for about a year now. Why would Samsung go ahead and do this? It's all about the money, one line would reduce cost. For a comparison the S9+ has a 6.22 inch screen The Note 8 uses a 6.3 inch screen. They both have the same resolution by the way, both have 6GB of ram. The S9 plus has a slightly larger battery. Apart from a few cosmetic differences, the two are really similar except that whole S Pen thing. The next Note is expected to debut on August 9th at the Samsung Unpack event. Let's head on over to Loon Lane. [MUSIC] Loon has signed a deal with Telecom Kenya to provide Internet services by ballong because that's what Loon does. Loon just spun out of Alphabet's X company Access alphabet research and development unit. Loon's internet service will go live next year. Last stop, Comment Cove. [MUSIC] This is a part of the show where we shine a spotlight on the best audience in the world, you guys. Abhi says, hey what happened to Fuchsia OS from Google? Is it dead or underdevelopment? Abhi, I hope you watch this episode for the answer Ry says, I dumped Chrome browser years ago because it was a memory hog. Now they wanna make it an even bigger memory hog. I will stick with Edge. On the rumor that Microsoft may be working on an Android phone, Darnell says, Microsoft should not make an Android phone. They should make another Windows phone instead. They need to make Windows better for a mobile operating system to make developers to want to make apps for it. Infest in your own platform. That's a strong stance Darnell. And Marvin says cool t-shirt. Where can i get one? Marvin, I got that shirt from Mid Time Comics. Thanks to everyone for writing in.
