Facebook is developing its own operating system Facebook OS

A custom OS could allow Facebook to move away from Android.

Facebook is reportedly building an operating system, reports The Information. It isn’t immediately clear exactly where it will be deployed, but the project could help the company move away from using Android to power its hardware.

The company presently uses a modified version of Android on its Portal line of video calling devices, as well as its Oculus VR headsets. Andrew Bosworth, who heads up hardware at Facebook, told The Information, “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.”

This isn’t the first time Facebook has considered developing its own OS. Facebook once developed prototypes of a custom OS for Home, but ultimately decided to use Android.

Facebook’s current Facebook OS work is part of a larger effort to make the company self-sufficient. “We really want to make sure the next generation has space for us,” Andrew Bosworth, Facebook’s head of augmented and virtual reality, told The Information. “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.”

ANY HOW, People believe that security level in Facebook Operating System Will be Low Because of Previous Scandals of Facebook.
