Google won't be building Google apps for Windows 8 anytime soon

Well, this doesn't bode well for Google lovers, like myself, or Windows 8. Clay Bavor, Product Management Director over at Google Apps has said that the Mountain View-based company will not be shifting over native Gmail or Google Drive apps to Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8.




Bavor has said that Google have "no plans to build out Windows apps" and that they are being "very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8".


This isn't bad news for just consumers, but also Microsoft. Microsoft only recently launched Windows 8, and with a considerable amount of people tied to Google apps like Gmail and Drive, it's going to be a hard decision to abandon those apps and dive straight into Microsoft. I know I'll be holding off for now, Windows 7 does everything I need it to do.
