So yeah, got a second source on this now: Andromeda was shelved. Some of the work being moved to other things, though. Trying to learn more.

Desktop "Convergence" remains industry's quicksand. See headstones of Ubuntu Unity, Windows Tiles, delayed Play Store on Chromebooks.
It's not been a good year for any software called Andromeda
Mass Effect was a disgrace
I thought Fuchsia was Andromeda?
It absolutely was not.
Fuchsia, a separate project that you are all aware of by now, is not dead and effectively serves as Andromeda's spritual successor.
Andromeda was absolutely real. It was Android-based and sought to bring Android to different form factors. Google was preparing hardware.
Hardware like "Bison" laptop, Huawei Nexus 7 tablet, others we never heard about. Assuming all shelved this point, but work won't be wasted.
Fwiw, one tipster says there's still a laptop "Chromebook" project in the works. Could be Bison, dunno.
This is disappointing. I was hoping to see a big generational leap to Android software soon, as we haven't seen one in a while. 💔
Watching competitors (macos+ios) I can understand a reason to drop the project. But I really wanted andromeda to become true.
By the way, with andromeda being dropped, I pretend the obnoxious and ugly Fuchsia to be dropped too (i hate that scrolling view)
I was really looking forward to it
