Google plans to replace Android with Fuchsia within the next 5 years. Fuchsia will support C/C++, Go, Dart, and Rust as programming languages. Java technology will then no longer play a role on Google devices - at least not in the form know today.
Today Android is the “killer application” for Kotlin because it is a welcome upgrade for developers that had to use dated Java versions otherwise. If Android and with it Java disappears from mobile devices the Kotlin+Android love story will end.
I wonder what that could mean for Kotlin. In principle Kotlin could be a good language for Fuchsia, too, since you can compile native apps with llvm. But Google seems to have no plans in this direction. And what is about the announced “Kotlin Foundation” that Google and JetBrains wanted to start? Is this still the case? Will Kotlin still be relevant for Google?
