According to The Verge, GoogleÂ has announced that it will be unifying all its instant messaging services into one. In simpler words, now the folks in charge of Google Duo, Google Meet and Android Messages will respond to Javier Soltero, who joined the Mountain View company last October. The new leader is also known for being the creator of a messaging application acquired by Microsoft.
No Current Plan To Merge All The Services In To A Single App
However, Soltero has made it clear that at present, the company has no plan to unify their applications. The main objective of this movement is aimed at the development and progression of each service in a more â€œcoherentâ€ way.
If you are a current with the news of surrounding the aforementioned services, you will know that there is a disorder in their progress. Everyone goes their own way and for the consumer, it starts to be a confusing subject.
â€œWe think people decide which products they use for specific tasks,â€ added the manager. â€œIn addition to putting more order in the growth of services, will continue to work on their modernization and define exactly who they are aimed atâ€.
â€œInnovation and superior quality in how these products can fulfill their specific missions will be stimulatedâ€.
Google Not Going The Way Of Facebook With Its Messaging Apps
It may be intuitive thatÂ Google has no intention to create a single application with all services. At least not soon. Its decision contrasts completely with that of Facebook, which has already decided to unify WhatsApp, direct messages from Instagram and Messenger in one service. However, those led by Mark Zuckerberg are still subject to various regulations. For some organizations, it is clear that they could form a monopoly on messaging.
Soltero alsoÂ indicates that it would be â€œirresponsibleâ€ to make a movement of such magnitude (the unification of applications). This is because many people depend on their platforms. Hiroshi Lockheimer, one of the main managers of the Google platforms, thinks that the services can always be integrated to improve the way between them. In this regard, it seems that Google will unify all of its messaging and communication apps into a single team.
