Google has been rather busy, as usual. However, they’ve also stated where they won’t be doing any work: on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Why? Because they think nobody uses them (which to a degree, has some merit). As Google’s product management director at Google Apps, Clay Bavor said, “We have no plans to build out Windows apps,” He continued, saying that, “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.”
And that’s the end of the story folks. If you’re hoping for new amazing apps on either of those platforms, you may have to wait until they are ultimately seen as viable. And that’s something a lot of developers have been doing now, contributing to a WP8 possible demise.
