Fuchsia, which joined the Preview Program in June, is now available to everyone who owns a Nest Hub Max. After the initial Nest Hub last year, Google’s fledgling OS is now widely available on a second device.
Before releasing Fuchsia to the Production /stable channel in recent days, Google tested it on the Nest Hub Maxs Preview Program for two months. The most recent version, 6.20211109.1.3166243, may be discovered under System settings > About device > Fuchsia version. Updates are installed overnight or in the early morning on the Nest Hub Max and other Assistant Smart Displays, with the exception of the second-generation Nest Hub with sleep tracking.
The addition of a Bluetooth menu in Settings that lists gadgets that have previously been associated with the Nest Hub Max is the sole change that affects users. It is considerably more convenient to rapidly pair a new device and use the display as a Bluetooth speaker than to set everything up using the Google Home app.

The UI and functionality like Look and Talk stay the same on the new OS, as does performance. In the meantime, the app launcher has oddly added a shortcut for Search, bringing the total to 17.
Google’s next update for the Nest Hub (2nd gen) is probably going to be Fuchsia. In order to prepare for Matter, the Hub Maxs bridge and range extender features will be removed from the upcoming release of Fuchsia (F7) (over Thread). The Smart Display should also see a more extensive overhaul soon.
