Facebook stated on Thursday, they’re exploring a chance of developing its own Operating System for smartphones and computing devices to influence AR Glasses. This idea happened to mitigate the reliance on Google’s Android OS.
According to the report, the development of new software is being directed by a former Microsoft Veteran, Mark Lucovsky also took a part in the Windows NT Operating System development. In simple terms, Facebook doesn’t trust Google.
While collecting the information related to what kind of hardware and devices will include in the new Operating system? Over here seems to have some of the understandable and beneficial ones from the new facebook software like Facebook’s Oculus Virtual reality hardware and the portal line of smart displays.
As of now, both these operative hardware are dependent on altered versions of Google’s Android Software.
“We really want to make sure the next generation has space for us. We don’t think we can trust the marketplace or competitors to ensure that’s the case. And so we’re gonna do it ourselves,” Andrew Bosworth, Facebook hardware vice president, said in the present report on The Information.
Besides, Facebook is also operating on new AR glasses to reach by 2023 and a voice assistant for its Oculus and portal products- probably, it will also be directed on the AR Glasses, presently called “Orion”.
Apart from these, Facebook is planning to research into a brain control interface that’s even more challenging to the company. If it all works out smoothly, in the future, Facebook is not just a Social media company, it’ll become much more than that for sure.
