As you know, Google hasn’t been quick to jump on the Windows Phone bandwagon, as the company has only released one app, and that is Google Search. Granted, releasing that on the Windows Marketplace surely didn’t take a whole lot of effort on Google’s part. Regardless, it seems like Google isn’t planning to support Windows 8 or even Windows RT with their apps either. Clay Bavor, Google Apps’ product management director, has said that Google is not planning to “build out Windows apps” simply because the users aren’t there. And frankly, I think a lot of us can agree with him.
Google’s made the Google Search app available for the new Windows
Metro Modern UI, and they’ve also added Modern UI support for Google Chrome. Aside from that though, Google isn’t planning to do a whole lot more than that, other than point users towards web apps to use Google products. Bavor has said, “we are very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8.”
