Google product management director Clay Bavor recently indicated that the company is not yet ready to commit financial resources to support Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Speaking to U.K. publication V3, Bavor said, "We have no plans to build out Windows apps. We are very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8. If that changes, we would invest there, of course." A search of the Windows Phone Store reveals that Google Search is the only application developed by Google for Microsoft's smartphone platform. The bulk of its services, such as Google+, Google Talk, Google Maps, and others, are unavailable in native app form to Windows Phones. Instead, said Bavor, Google is favoring its own Android platform as well as Apple's iOS platform.
