1. A large fraction of Garnet (low level components of Fuchsia) is written in Rust. (https://fuchsia.googlesource.com/fuchsia/+/refs/heads/master...)

2. Fuchsia seemingly supports Android apps (https://9to5google.com/2019/01/02/android-runtime-app-suppor...).

3. For 1 + 2, Android may need to include and compile a part of Fuchsia for interop.

My guess is that this addition is mostly for supporting Fuchsia, rather than using Rust directly in Android.
