And what about Google in 2019?
In the ongoing year, Google regroups its forces a little and changes the course of development.
The closing of Google + planned for August 2019 may be surprising. But not only was its popularity dwindling, there also were privacy concerns.
The Google Assistant in Polish is fast approaching, but we still do not know when exactly will it be released to the public. Initially, Google promised that the Assistant will be extended to support additional languages later in 2018 amassing to 30 of them in December. This information was finally confirmed and an additional confirmation were the screenshots, from the test version of the Assistant application, which appeared in industry portals.
Later there were some suggestions that the official Google assistant’s premiere in Polish may move a bit in time. Everything indicates that in mid-January 2019 Google Assistant will officially start working in Polish.
Additionally, for 2019, Google announces its return to China. Ben Gomes, Google’s vice president responsible for search engines, told his employees that the company intends to return to China in early 2019. Meanwhile, Amnesty International, along with some of Googles crew, is demanding that the company cease working on tools to censor the Chinese Internet. In 2010 the company withdrew from the Chinese market, due to the pressure from the Chinese authorities. However, in 2018, the American technology giant did a lot to return to the Chinese market. However, for this to happen, the corporation must make some concessions, of which Google President Sundar Pichai and Ben Gomes are well aware of. The latter, among other things, oversees the development of the Dragonfly program.
