WSJ: Google is merging its Chrome and Android operating systems

According to a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report, tech giant Google has efforts underway to fuse its two popular operating systems – Chrome OS and Android OS – into one single operating system.

The move reported by WSJ, citing information shared by unidentified sources familiar with the matter, clearly indicates that Google plans to concentrate its power in the mobile computing arena.

As per the WSJ sources, an early version of the united Chrome-Android operating system will likely be unveiled by Google in 2016. However, the official version of the single OS will be launched by the company in 2017.

About Google’s ongoing efforts in the direction of merging its Chrome and Android operating systems, the WSJ sources have revealed that engineers at Google have been working on the amalgamation of the Chrome and Android operating systems for the last two years.

The WSJ sources also said that Google’s efforts to unite the Chrome and Android operating systems are largely aimed at getting the company’s software on as many devices as possible. The sources also added that the merging of Chrome and Android operating systems will be a beneficial move for independent developers, as their apps will be able to work on more devices with slight modifications.
