Google Hires Senior Apple Engineer To Bring Fuchsia OS To Market


Google has been working on its mysterious operation system Fuchsia for quite some time now. Time and again, we have seen several hints and clues which confirms the existence of the new OS.

The most recent one was dropped by a high ranking Apple engineer Bill Stevenson who has confirmed publicly that he’s joining Google to bring the Fuchsia OS to the market.

While it confirms that Fuchsia is on its way to the market, it still doesn’t put a deadline by when we can expect it. The only word we have on it is Bloomberg’s unconfirmed report which claims that the new OS will be shipped on connected home devices in the next three years.

It is nevertheless interesting to see what Stevenson would contribute to the team. The Senior Manager for Mac/Windows Program Management has been an Apple employee for almost 15 years.

His LinkedIn profile states that he started as a Product Release Engineer for Mac OS X in 2004. For the past six years, he’s monitored the launches of macOS Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, and Mojave.

Even though Stevenson’s new role at Google hasn’t been revealed yet, it’s obvious that he will take up a fairly high-level position. Among all his roles at Apple, Stevenson closely worked on cloud integrations within Mac OS.

So its quite possible that Stevenson will help in moving Fuchsia when it comes to cloud services, as that will presumably be a major part of how Fuchsia works.
