As you may know, Google doesn’t only work on Android and Chrome OS as operating systems. With Fuchsia, there is another project that was even traded in the rumor mill as a major Android successor. So far, it’s only been used on less than a handful of devices, namely only on the Smart Displays of the Nest Hub series.
Nothing actually changes on the surface, which is why users should practically not notice the system change. However, some reports are now appearing that Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max are apparently struggling with Fuchsia. Fuchsia was rolled out about a year ago and was not entirely bug-free from the start.
Random reboots, wifi issues, lag
Of course, these complaints have surfaced on Twitter, where AndroidPolice colleague Ryne Hager, for example, has vented his anger. “I’m experiencing random reboots, Wi-Fi connection issues, lag in multi-step custom commands – all of this is new since the switch,” he writes, apparently poking a hornet’s nest.
According to the experiences of 9to5Google author Max Weinbach, not only the Nest Hub Max – which, by the way, is not officially sold in this country – is affected, but all three of the company’s smart displays, including the smaller Nest Hubs of the first and second generation. “ This is the case with all three hub devices. They’re just all slow and cheap,” Weinbach said.
Another user compared the experience to an Amazon screen and chimed in: “I’m not a fan of my Max or regular-sized home hub. Even when it works, the apps are inferior to my smart displays with Alexa, which only run web YouTube.
And I have to say: I have a first-generation Nest Hub, which also already has Fuchsia installed. For some time now, I have noticed that there have been an increasing number of problems, especially the WLAN interruptions that I noticed negatively. So far I hadn’t associated that with the switch to fuchsia because it was supposed to be a little longer ago.
Google’s response to complaints needs improvement
Perhaps thanks to the “prominence” of the original author, Google has even already reacted. Unfortunately, instead of a comprehensive statement, there is only the standard answer from a support employee: “Hey Ryne, we saw your tweet. Need help with your Nest Hub Max? We’re here for you.”
