Facebook wants to reduce its reliance on Android. For this, they are developing new operating systems (Facebook OS).
Social media, Facebook named the operating system ‘Facebook OS’. Initially, Facebook will use the operating system on its smart speakers and Oculus VR.
OST is being developed under the leadership of the Facebook operating system general manager Mark Lukowski. He was previously a co-author of Windows NT in 1990. Since then he has worked in several large organizations. Some of these years worked at Google, VMware.
“We want to make sure the next generation has a place for us,” said Andrew Bosworth, vice president of Facebook’s hardware division. We do not think that as competitors in the market, we will move ahead in different ways. But we want to develop it ourselves.
This is not to say that the social media giant has made such a decision out of any bad relationship with Google. Rather, having a good relationship, Facebook is making its place more secure.
Google’s relationship with Chinese giant Huawei deteriorated from May this year. Then Huawei announced its own operating system and brought it. Although Huawei’s Harmony operating system has not yet begun to be used on mobile phones, they will soon start using it.
