Google Winding Down Google Labs!
Google recently declared that it is planning on shuttering its Labs department since Google is into such a broad range of products. Google explained the reason to be spotlighting and prioritizing the products more and winding down Google Labs is a step to keep the process rolling.
Google labs were quoted to be “a playground where our more adventurous users can play around with prototypes of some of our wild and crazy ideas and offer feedback directly to the engineers who developed them.”.
Google announced, “While we’ve learned a huge amount by launching very early prototypes in Labs, we believe that greater focus is crucial if we’re to make the most of the extraordinary opportunities ahead.”
Many Labs experiments will be terminated but that’s crucial, for Google’s point of view. Google’s products are doing quite good in the markets and the bright-spotlight on them, after the Labs are shut, will for sure make them markets’ cream of the crop.
The Labs products and technologies will be incorporated into other product areas and the Android apps will continue to be accessible through Android Market. Seems like Google is really pushing the speed and innovation and the current steps will surely augment customers’ expectations from the new Google products.
