Will Google adopt Swift as a “first-class” language for Android?

“About the time Swift was going open source, representatives for three major brands — Google, Facebook and Uber — were at a meeting in London discussing the new language.”

Says The Next Web in a blog post, and goes on to state that according to the sources Google is considering making Swift a “first class” language for Android.

Wondering what is Swift? It’s a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language created for iOS, OS X, watchOS, tvOS and Linux development by Apple as a replacement to Objective C.

Do you think Google would go for it?

There is a fair chance Google might adapt Swift, considering the ongoing legal dispute related to Oracle’s copyright and patent claims on Google’s Android operating system.
