Google Has No Plans of Developing Native Apps for Microsoft Windows Phone 8


Google has always been considered as “good guy” in tech circles, the simple reason for that being their apps running on all platforms. Well, almost on every platform. However, all that now seems to change with Google making it clear that they don’t intend to develop native apps for software giant Microsoft's impending Windows Phone 8 mobile OS.


In a recent statement from company’s spokesperson it was unveiled that Google is very cautious about where they want to invest and will prefer to go where most of the modern customers are, but will not be targeting Windows Phone or Windows 8." However, the company didn’t declined the possibility of developing apps for Windows Phone 8 platform and said that if a large number of customers opt for Windows Phone 8, they wouldn’t mind developing applications for them.


It is worth mentioning that, Windows marketplace does not have many of prominent Google apps including Google Drive, Gmail, Google Currents, Google Maps, and Google Talk. On the other hand, Google has been going all out on Apple’s iOS platform and has recently launched the native app for their mapping software for Apple’s iPads, iPhones, and iPods.


While Google has been maintaining a distance from Microsoft’s Windows Phone mobile operating system, major mobile makers like HTC, Samsung, Huawei, and Nokia have already proclaimed their smartphones that will be running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform.
