Thanks Hadlee, we really feel the identical manner about Google this week.
Google I/O week is often the most effective week of the 12 months for Google and Android, however the unique timing of the cancelled 2020 event marks one other epic fail, and this one isn’t guilty on a virus, no, Google themselves are guilty.
Seemingly impartial of the Pixel crew information, we didn’t see the Pixel 4a launch this week, we’re underneath the impression it’s delayed till June.
Reports and hypothesis swirled across the trade after some key members of Google’s smartphone team told the company where to go and how to get there. Both the Google Pixel Manager and the person credited with the success of the Pixel cameras have walked out. The report says that Rick Osterloh and others had been upset in the Pixel 4 even earlier than it launched.
We perceive, we have some Pixel gripes as well. And now we’re anxious about the way forward for Google telephones.
Google can be pulling the plug on Google Play Music, and most of us will not be pleased about that. I suppose Google’s analysis says that individuals need streaming providers, and we will’t deny that YouTube is a beast, however is YouTube Music the way forward for audio that we actually need? We’ll attempt to be neutral in our information protection, however make no mistake, the overwhelming majority of Android Authority writers I spoke to will not be pleased about this, myself included. While most of us will give YouTube Music a attempt to see what it’s all about, nearly all of us are already migrating to a brand new everlasting resolution for our music. Funny factor, you agree with us. So simply what’s Google pondering?!?
Their smartphone efforts want some consideration, however which may be the least of Google’s issues in the close to future, there’s a good likelihood that the U.S. Justine Department will launch a new antitrust investigation into the corporate. The DOJ is anxious about Google’s search and advert enterprise, so perhaps there’s nonetheless hope for a Pixel 5 with some actual specs. Oh, never mind.
