if not, Dart is becoming more like Kotlin. nullable types and extension functions have been announced. (not as ready but as under construction)

It might come the other way around (Fuchsia supporting Kotlin), or sideways (Dart becoming Kotlin compatible). Also, it's likely that Kotlin/Native becomes supported on Fuchsia, but probably later down the road, possibly with Google's investment. That's my take.

I don't think Dart will become Kotlin compatible, it has never been designed with Java/Kotlin compat in mind.

I don’t think so either, but it sure picks up some of Kotlin’s features. I hope it doesn’t pick lambdas with receivers though. I feel like that’d be the sign that Dart has lost its identity. (e.g. it already has it’s idiomatic ways for doing what Kotlin tackles with let, apply, …)
