Thanks Hadlee, we really feel the identical approach 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 occasion marks one other epic fail, and this one isn’t guilty on a virus, no, Google themselves are guilty.

Seemingly impartial of the Pixel workforce information, we didn’t see the Pixel 4a launch this week, we’re underneath the impression it’s delayed till June.

Studies and hypothesis swirled across the business after some key members of Google’s smartphone workforce informed the corporate the place to go and find out how to get there. Each the Google Pixel Supervisor and the person credited with the success of the Pixel cameras have walked out. The report says that Rick Osterloh and others had been disenchanted within the Pixel four even earlier than it launched. 

We perceive, we’ve some Pixel gripes as properly. 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 are usually not completely happy 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 are usually not completely happy about this, myself included. Whereas 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 answer for our music. Humorous 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 within the close to future, there’s a good probability that the U.S. Justine Division will launch a brand new antitrust investigation into the corporate. The DOJ is anxious about Google’s search and advert enterprise, so possibly there’s nonetheless hope for a Pixel 5 with some actual specs. Oh, by no means thoughts.
