Google announced yesterday that all communications apps and teams are gathered under one person’s leadership. According to Google’s announcement, G Suite Vice President and General Manager Javier Soltero will now be responsible for all of Google’s communications and messaging applications.
It was the first time Javier Soltero became famous for his e-mail application, Acompli, which later became an application of Outlook. Soltero was responsible for Microsoft’s Cortana before transferring to Google, and due to his success, he had advanced his career as the leader of G Suite, Google Meet and Google Chat by transferring from Microsoft to Google last October.
Javier Soltero is now responsible for Google’s messaging apps
Google has led Javier Soltero now to the teams responsible for Google Duo, Google Messages and their Android phone apps. With this appointment, Soltero has been made responsible for all of Google’s messaging apps.
Speaking after the appointment, Soltero announced that Google has no emergency plan to change or integrate any of its applications. For this reason, one should not interpret Soltero’s appointment as a change or merge of messaging applications.
The fact that Javier Soltero is responsible for all of Google’s communication applications actually seems to have arisen from Google’s need for a more consistent and thoughtful development process in its applications.
