Google has updated its only app in the Windows Store, Google Search, for Windows 10

Google has only released one app in the Windows Store, and that's for Google Search. Now that app has been updated in the store with support for Windows 10. It includes a revamped and cleaner user interface that takes on Google's Material Design ideas.

Basically, the Google Search app allows Windows 10 users to access Google's search engine without having to use a browser. It does support using a microphone so that users can speak their search string which can then be accessed by the app. It also supports image search and the app also has a page to directly access online versions of Google's other apps and services like YouTube, Gmail, Maps and others.

Aside from this release, Google has never make any indications it plans to release any native apps for Windows 10 (although it has released a dedicated Xbox One YouTube app, so for the moment it looks like Google Search will stand alone.

The Google app is actually pretty decent. It makes use of hardware for speaking, can do in-line browsing (or use Edge), and it has a clean look. The app does not yet work on Windows 10 Mobile, however, it may very well come over to that side soon too.

  • lol! Are u kidding us Screwgle?We don't need your sh*t? We have Cortana!
  • The only Google app I want is one which blocks Google entirely from my machine. Google is the worst form of malware.
  • Me too, google chrome' s been installed hundred times without my will on my win7.
  • No it hasn't
  • Adobe is who you can blame for that
  • You're downloading the wrong sort of software then and not reading the small print.
  • Everyone should immediatey download and install 'unchecky'. Automatically unchecks those stupid pre-ticked boxes that most software come with that basically trick-installs crap like google and Ask to you PC. www.unchecky.com  
  • It's disappointing how such comments get the attention of fans subtly similar to those of the 2008-2010 bunch of fanfags.
  • It's disappointing how in 2015 some people still use "fag" as an insult.
  • You can hate Google, but you should recognize that the windows store will instantly better off if Google offered first party Chrome, Gmail, and YouTube applications. Mail is good, our 3rd party YT apps are good, Edge is good. But millions of people still use Google, and the store would be instantly more attractive to all of them if they could find those apps, provided by a first party. It helps legitimize the app store, even if you don't use the apps yourself. Shouting "Who needs {Google/apple}" is a great way for MS to isolate itself. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Nope. It still sucks.
  • I agree with @txDrum.  Google apps are a necessity, I don't use Google, but them having apps in our Store is a good thing.
  • Exactly.
  • Necessary, they are not - desirable, by some they are. Beneficial to the platform, indeed, if it is what people what. Personally I wouldn't notice if Google disappeared tomorrow. There isn't a single service they have that there isn't a more appealing alternative for.
  • so tell me more how you can listen to youtube music in the background, or getting notifications on gmal, all this from a browser, when you have a phone. stop being haters. as of it right now, WE are the ones who need google services on the platform, not vice-versa, otherwise google would have released its apps already, despite its rage against windows platforms
  • It's astonishing how delusional you people have become.
  • I think we both should do some collaboration. Ridding the world of Google.
  • if you want some of the 2 billion iphone users and android users to come to windows phone then the word necessaty fits perfectly, windows phone cant go forward to far if it doesnt have all the major apps, and phone abilities of its competition, things like apple pay still havent even been mentioned for windows, no gestres which was wow, at least we are geting intergration with skype, thats starting to look and feel great.   Microsoft know all this and they are trying hard to solve it.
  • They are nessery many deplovments people arount the would try to compete with function apps agains large as Google, and if they start spend mony and employ people for code for Windows, many other deplovments people also start to deplove for Windows.  My self deplove for PC software, iOS and Android and will never taget Windows atlest not for Phone see no point of spend my mony and time for this OS, but if many of the company some give out stuff like my own product am gonna be force by automatic to release or am will lose people use the prodcuts :)
  • Why would one need a chrome, gmail or youtube app? They can all be accessed and arguably perform better in the browser, and in the case of gmail your account can be pulled into any email client.
  • Tell that to a casual, non-enthusiast customer.
  • Are you actually suggesting that there are people who have no idea how to set up an email client? And that if they had multiple email addresses they would use multiple branded clients, one for service, instead of just adding all addresses to one client? Come on.
  • Yes, most definetely. Even though I use one client on windows10 I more often go to dedicated clients for each webservice for added benefits. For gmail there's the tab grouping system, let's not even talk about google inbox, even for outlook there are added benefits to using a first party client.
  • Clearly, you haven't met my mother.
  • That has been true for most popular apps on phones and tablets. The apps are more convenient and tend to have more functionality added to them over time. HTML5 might change that, but it hasn't happened yet.
  • People like Chrome because it Syncs their Log-In information across devices.  Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't make Edge for iOS, Edge for Android, etc.  Their Bing App is clunky as shit.  Chrome is the only Firefox that really bridges a gap that wide.     YouTube is necessary to easily Upload Video to the service, like via "Share."  Additionally, they can build in moderation and communication/messaging tools into the App and generally offer a much better interface for i.e. Tablets.  On top of that, when Google introduces changes or new capabilities to the platform, they tend to get them implemented first.  We do not know if or when Google will choose to crack down on 3rd party YouTube apps - a majority of which runs afoul of their Terms of Service. Gmail app is necessary because Gmail sucks in anything that isn't designed for Gmail, due to the way the mail service works on the back end, an the way it exposes its data to 3rd party apps via IMAP. Additionally:  Push Notifications for things like GMail or YouTube without having to keep the App Running all the time in the background, or having to do Manual Synchronization on a Schedule which both drains more power, and can lead to you getting important emails minutes late. No vanilla IMAP email client is better than a proper Gmail client.  It's part of the reason almost no Mac users I know use anything but Apple's PIM Apps for thier iCloud PIM.  Once you switch off of those apps, the user experience breaks down and you're thrown back to the 1990s.
  • well simply put because out of the 1.5 billion on android and iphone about 90% of tem use official you tube app, gmail, googles caleder so ts a eal olid reason why windows phone would benifit from these apps.  Personally i only use you tube and gmasil now but i am using other things and if google doesnt wana suport windows phone then im gona be changing my habits too.
  • First party Gmail maybe, but the mail app itself is above satisfactory. It's YouTube that widows store needs from Google and that's it. Maybe drive just so people can move their storage from drive to OneDrive.
  • You can already move your storage from Drive to OneDrive by downloading the Sync Client and just Dragging the files over from Drive to OneDrive.  OneDrive is cited as being incredibly slow by a ton of users, and it doens't support nearly as many file formats for previewing as Drive. The Windows 10 Mail app is a buggy piece of shit.  How much do you actually use email?  The damn thing can't even reliably sync without breaking... "Your email options are out of date." 5 times a day...
  • I agree with you. I am fine without google but I cannot recommend WP when I see people like google service, like hangout, maps, Gmail. This thing has no perfect substitute yet in WP. Only google can give me perfect address, email client doesn't provide categories email, there is no substitute of hangout (no app in WP allow free incoming and outgoing of real phone number). I love WP but because google service, I cannot recommend strongly if I see somebody is relient on google service. Thanks
  • In the US, at least (cannot speak for other countries), Microsoft Maps is as good as Apple Maps (if not better), which is totally usable.  So, I don't really see the obsession with Google Maps unless you happen to live in one of the areas where they do Transit Directions and use that.  None of the services support Transit where I live, so they're practically all on par with each other.  In that case, Here Maps is theoretically superior, but I don't like using 3rd party apps for stuff like that, so I use Apple Maps on my iPhone.  I wouldn't care about Google Maps on my Windows Tablet, Notebook, or iMac because I'd just use the bundled Maps apps (Apple Maps or Microsoft Maps).  My Tablet has a GPS so Microsoft Maps works wonderfully on it, with the Offline Maps.  It's like a really big GPS unit :-) On top of that, you get Auto-Updatable Offline Maps.  Seems like a great service. Google Maps took us to Jersey instead of Pennsylvania when a friend of mine entered his street Address.  Apparently the service couldn't realize that he wanted to go to PA even though his Address was the same street address in PA.  It was taking us to some random city in New Jersey instead.  I ended up late for an engagement because We lost 35+ minutes of travel time as a result.  He told Google Maps to Navigate "Home," and it made this mistake. Google Maps is not infallible.
  • Google maps has bike maps which are a really nice feature if one is an avid cyclist.  They also do a nice job with trails -- both hiking and bike trails.  An an avid Windows user and IOS user (Iphone and Ipad) I think Google maps has the best overall map application with everything that it offers.  I am not a Google fan, but I have to give them credit for maps.  It's the only thing I wish they had on Windows phone -- I do like Windows phone, just can't justify buying one for the App gap as Windows phone also lacks Garmin bike computer app and Strava.
  • There are more people who use cars for map services than cyclists. Google Maps sucks for drivers. Period.
  • I think they may come out with one. Edge is actually competition now. So why not try to steal ms edge share on ms's own platform. It can even integrate with Cortana.
  • For practically anyone using Chrome or Firefox, Edge is an afterthought because it does not support Extensions. People using Google Chrome likely are in the Google Ecosystem, which means Cortana is probably worthless to them as they do not use the services she relies on to do what she does enough for her to be all that userful.  Chrome installs Google Now with itself by default. The problem is, at this point, Google doens't even have to TRY to steal Edge's share on MS's own platform.  They just have to exist there.  Seriously, even IE11 has an Ad Block Extension (and TPL's), and Edge is disfunctional with a lot of websites/web apps, especially those used for business use.  Friend of mine had to set IE11 as his default because Edge being the default made his PC inoperable for work purposes. Given the shape Windows 10 is in right now, the bugginess, the glitchiness, the buggy Universal Apps, the incompleteness of Edge.  I would not have complained if they had waited until October to release the OS instead of rushing it out on June 29th.
  • I'm deeply nested in the Google eco-system and i hate chrome, I don't use it in windows nor on my Android phone. People stick with chrome in the same way they stuck with IE pre 10 before realizing there were better alternatives. Now that chrome has become the new old IE it's the same pattern.
  • You can buy yourself a chromebook and go to google campus if you don't understand what is meant by development in progress. And fyi, July and June are 2 different months on the calendar.
  • i think that things would be different if google search app wasn't the only app google makes for windows users. it's like they are spitting in our hands...plus, that app is totally useless! if i want to make a google search i use edge or other browsers, not that app! I gotta say that I would like to have google apps on windows store, because this would let a lot more people think about moving to windows tablets and windows phone, and this would be like a bootstrap to begin attract more developers to port their apps to the windows store. But i don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon...​
  • I agree with you that WP needs Google app to appeal to Google dependants. Strangely enough, WP currently has the best YouTube apps available on any platform, particularly when it comes to aesthetics. It's the one area in the OS app battle that WP is superior.
  • WP not having the Google apps is a big reason a lot of people are still using Android instead of WP, and Google knows it. They aren't going to port them.
  • Not only that, but they threaten and intimidate anyone who makes a good alternative that uses the Google API that has the guts to actually make a WP app for a google service. They even blocked the app they made WITH microsoft for youtube, claiming that it didn't use HTML5 and so was banned from accessing youtube.  This is despite the fact that apple's youtube app doens't use HTML5 and (at the time) googles own damn youtube app for android didn't use HTML5 either. They are a scumbag company that have built their entire business ripping off other peoples' IP, wrapping it in spyware and calling it their own, and yet its MS that the sheep all raise their pitchforks against and race with flaming torches to the windmill about!
  • Google has to Advertise, adn Microsoft did go around them the first go around.  It's hard to negotiate when you spit in their faces on first attempt.  Microosft kind of blew that. Also, Microosft should have built a better browser engine for Windows Phone.  A lot of the issues they ran into were due to their horrible mobile browser engine and lack of technology support in the platform. Even the Vimeo App sucked on Windows Phone, so it's not exclusively a YouTube problem.  Apps on the platform are just generally terrible compared to iOS and Android, and the developers do not pay a huge amount of attention to maintaining and supporting them. The result is Apps get terrible reviews and low ratings, which leads to lower downloads and usage, which leads to developers just giving up. A lot of the "developer pain" on this platform was caused by its own users.  While they were on forums saying "give it time, the platform is new" they were on the App Store blasting any developer that violated the most menial areas of their precious UI/UX Guidelines or had issues developing for the platform earlier on. Windows Phone was not an encouraging user base to develop for, especially given how little they generally spent on store content (generally speaking).  It was like Android all over again, but with even shallower pockets and only 1/1000th of the market share.
  • Yeh gameing apps huge issue, normal apps a small issue but soz my 6 years on iphone was taken over when i tried 8.1 mobile, its was the refreshing live tiles, it was the open nfc that even today the iphones version is restricted, its the windows gestures where i placed the phone on a take and it auto maticly put speakerphone on lol and theres loats and lots of things my windows phone did and does then my iphones never did and visa versa.  I really dont want generic apps from first party unless they make a little effort to fit into the envoirnment they are made for, thats the great thing about windows phone its that different and you get a little more customisation than a iphone and a little less than android, it feels right.  also i loved cortana and the built in browser in 8.1 mobile, it was never a issue for me and it was fast, then again i never had a issue with safari either. With my limited experience on android i always tell friends iphone or wwindows, try them first, i and again its just me i am fed up with androdi phones i have used becomeing slow after a day or 2 of customising and app installing, i was fed up with all the crashing too, i see android as the old windows moblie 5-6 t but i dont want to go back to those days.  Maybe in 4-6 years ill try android again and maybe itll be better for me but at this time im not a fan.  Saying that i saw colour os and that seems to be a nice android version.
  • Google still sucks, not just because we hate it, but because Google is trying to show that it has the upper hand. If Google had released the #$%^ing apps already, we wouldn't be here, bitching about it now, would we?
  • 100% disagree
  • Really?  Mail is good?! No it damn well isn't.  It looks kinda nice, but its got perhaps 1/20th the capabilities of something like Windows Live Mail let alone outlook or even outlook.com Its like using a mail program with boxing gloves on, however thats what most 'normal' people think they want (which means they're freaking idiots).
  • I will never understand why Microsoft crippled the usability of thier OS by replacing something as good as Vista Mail/Windows Live Mail, Windows Photo Gallery, etc. with ... Microsoft Mail/Calendar and Microsoft Photos. Kind of like how they replaced WLM with Skype and everyone I knew who used WLM basically moved to a non-Microsoft product because Skype is such a horrible Messaging service. They are really desperate with this Universal Windows Platform bullshit, that doesn't benefit anyone but them, because the apps are so crippled (and unstable) compared to the ones they replaced in the OS that they aren't even worth using. I've actually been considering switching my Notebook over to Linux, though.  These days I use iOS and OS X about 90% more than Windows so it's the perfect time to move my Laptop over to a LTS or Enterprise Linux Distro/Subscription and phase Microsoft's Platform and services out completely.
  • Not being on Windows Phone is the best decision ever made by Google for ... Microsoft. Now I'm using Microsoft Services also on my Android and IOS devices because I like to have unified experience. And I bet I'm not the only one.
  • Don't need em. I could see those living outside of the US may have a need for google search since Bing is still farily basic there. But in the US. Bing is King.
  • Obviously, but there's nothing we can do if Google continues to be vindictive, so we raise the middle finger right back at them.
  • i would love a you tube app but to be fair i love my metro tube and tube cast, if metro had casting then i wouldnt need a you tube google app.  Ofc we all want to see those google apps on our phones but because google didnt support windows phone 8.1 i have already moved away from most google things, i even spend alot more time on vimo and other chanels just because google dont suport windows phone.  If they dont suport windows 10 phone then my next step will be to change all my gmail accounts toing google as my main search engin'i hope i dont have too.  Personally i find them being anti competative.  Its funny to think that google just wouldnt exisit if it wasnt for windows yet they show no loyalty back.  Instead they suport apple who never suported google in the years gone buy.  thats prety discusting really but then again google is owned by a load of suits these days.
  • You are right! But it would have made much sense if Google would have ported their first party app way back when Windows Phone 8 launched, but they avoided infact made changes to APIs in such a way that 3rd party developers too find it difficult to get Google services on Windows Platform and now when we have better traffic and platform if getting better by the day, they are sneaking in to get more traffic from here... All would have welcomed them wholeheartedly at start but joining party now when cake is ready to eat is not acceptable.. Google NOT Welcomed anymore...
  • Actually, from everything I've read, its Google being a dickweed and simply refusing to port/create its Apps for Windows Phone. I get it. Windows Phone is a competitor. Honestly, I'd love to see YouTube and Google Drive applications developed by Google developed for Windows Phone, I'd be a happy duck if that ever happened, but it won't cause Google doesn't give a **** about being platform agnostic, although it promotes that a lot. It had to port its apps over to iOS because their Market Share is so great, so it would be destructive for them to not do so, however they simply scoff and shove off the Windows Phone platform because its so small, and probably refuse to pay W10 anymind, because, well hey, if you're on a W10 computer you can just use a web-browser, so who cares to develop apps. I personally hate this attitude, and have noticed that Microsoft is the predominant company of late which is developing platform agnostic software and apps and letting everyone have it, iOS, Google, whatever, and THEYRE the underdogs, especially in the mobile app world. So wtf.
  • You may not want it but other people that like Google will use it. This is a good thing and should be welcomed.
  • They can use their google on android tablets, google be gone.
  • 100000 LIKES for this -----> lol! Are u kidding us Screwgle?We don't need your sh*t? We have Cortana!
  • HA HA!
  • LOL
  • What would google say if Microsoft said it doesn't follow modern app standards and blocked it... or worse pulled and an Apple and said duplication of OS functionality: blocked.
  • They should absolutely do this.  However, todays microsoft has no balls and seemingly little desire to stand up for their users.
  • Lol people still use Google? What year is it, 2010?
  • I'll take Google thanks, Bing is a poor second.
  • Says someone who probably hasn't tried out bing for several years. I get far more relevant results and way fewer "buy this shit" results than when I trust google to do searches for me.  You might think google has you covered, but you should try some of the blind search tools that only tell you which engine your preferred results come from AFTER you make your decision.
  • Google is about as amateurish as it gets. I switched over to Bing maybe two years ago and the difference is night and day. Bing is beautiful, relevant and just a much better effort at a search engine and even qualifies as an excellent landing page with all your office and OneDrive access. Google is just a white page with an input box with results all over the F'ing place.
  • We think alike NIST.
  • Most of us don't have Cortana because of the region s**t
  • Is that app still relevant?
  • Yeah! Who uses Google search... Just billions users....fuck off. Microsoft doesn't need you.
  • Of course it is relevant. STOP BEING A BITTER FANBOY!!!!
  • My favorite part was the title.
  • Looks clean.
  • Why is this on my platforms store ? Google is trash.
  • a Trash who is market leader. Don't know that that make MS
  • Seriously, why would anyone use this?
  • Why not?
  • Open app. Enter search. Open browser. Enter search. Honestly, the only this thing would be faster than the standard option would be to overrite Cortana.
  • You don't even have to open an app.  Just hit the windows key and start typing your search request.
  • Here comes all the Google hate. Guess it's the cool thing to do eh kids?
  • Tell me what's cool then, Mr. Adult :)
  • Google has on multiple times taken potshots at Windows with a horrible, laughable search app and literally no other app.
    Heck, they even removed MS Youtube apps for no reason at all
  • Oh they gave a reason, but it was total bullshit.  MS's app (the one google made WITH MS) didn't use HTML5 and so google claimed that because it didn't stick to google's API access standard couldn't allowed to work with their service. That, despite the fact that google's OWN android youtube app didn't use HMTL5 nor apple's youtube app either.
  • Well, certainly learned behavior. Anyhow, in this instance isn't it warranted? Google has done all it can to forsake people who use multiple ecosystems (particularly Windows Phone users). Not debating whether or not that makes sense for their business, only that it is the modus operandi for them. Unfortunate, really.
  • iOS
  • The goog just doesn't support our platform. That's their choice, in my opinion kind of short sighted but still their choice. I do however hope it comes back and bites them though.
  • As a Windows phone user, they decided to hate me first, so I don't feel bad hating them back.
  • Agreed
  • Eloquently put, sir!
  • Thank you. Because of that, I would never install google search on my windows phone.
  • That's how I look at it, I mean they basically said they don't want or need my business, ok thanks have a nice day, others do.
  • That's where I'm at now also. I liked their service but they drove me away. They don't want my business, I don't want their service.
  • So true!! ;)
  • I love how it's an accepted norm to hate on anything Microsoft, but as soon as there's so much as an utterance of negativity towards Google, you people all go holier than thou. Pot calling kettle black is what I'm seeing here.
  • Would you use any of Googles apps if they put them on Windows? Most of you wouldn't as you're 'fanboys' so why the hell do you care? If they did put all their apps on it i guarantee it'd be the same negative crap you're all posting now.
    Anything that doesn't praise Windows for being the best thing since sliced bread and you all go batshit crazy.
  • So let me get this right - not using a product because I find a product from another company to be better and suits my needs better, now qualifies as being a fanboy? I also find it funny that you are here complaining that if someone doesn't praise Windows is being "batshit crazy" and yet you are the one being batshit crazy because we are not praising Google and their products. In other words, we must not say anything negative about Google and complain about Microsoft because if we don't then we will hurt your feelings and you will have a temper tantrum about us "fanboys"
  • #strawman
  • Did he call us fanboys? Yep. Did he claim that we refuse to use Google products? Yep. Did he call us "batshit crazy?" Yep. Is he complaining because we do not give Google complements? Yep. Is he claiming that we spread hate towards Google? Yep.   Strawman? Nope. Trying to be cool by using a "hash tag" and one word snarky comments, but instead looking like a pretentious moron? Yep.
  • You're taking everything apart in order to exaggerate everything he said. He didn't call everyone. He called most*** which is not a false statement. The majority of people here do focus on the fanboyism towards MSFT. Same thing in the apple and android forums.
    The fact that you immediately took insult to something that maybe didn't apply to you.. Attacked him back.. Well you prove a different point.
    Anything against your opinion makes you go batshit crazy. Also: #ad hominem And I'm not even going to begin defining everything else you said down below.
  • I won't presume to speak for the OP you are replying to. I personally will say I don't think its about not saying anything negative about Google or the hypocrisy in hating on MS as its more the idea of it being quite silly and childish to absolutely praise or outright hate a company who (and let's be really honest here) has done nothing to directly to improve or ruin your life respectively. Sure a device or service might make doing some task a little easier. But at the end of the day, none of these companies (regardless of how much I like or dislike their products) are not that important to waste so much emotion over. Maybe I've never been the target individual for these discussions. But the extremes over phones (and in connection these companies) just comes of as insane. 
  • And that is the thing, I am not writing anything about how I hate Google. I wrote I find alternative products better, I tried Google, and found other products better - not all of them are from Microsoft. But the OP had to jump in and start complaining about those Google haters and how mean they are, and then add more whiny-ness to the thread. Google has specifically denied giving me a product that supports my device, so I use a product that is supported. And somehow that means that I am a hater, and he has to go to a site to whine and complain about no comment in particular - he started a new comment thread in reply to no body. It is the usual attention getting trick, create the controversy and then whine about how people fueling the controversy.
  • If this where the case? Then this would be treu to: who would use Microsoft services on Android devices? As we all know millions of people use Microsoft services on Android by choice. Google could get a few hundred thousand maybe even a few million users on Windows 10 Mobile if they put the time and effort in it, easily!
  • Go back a 5-7 years and you would find all of these so called fanboys 99% used google and their services. Today they do not not because of anything they did but what was googles choice. It was googles choice not to support the ecosystem and alienate those users. I would say they have well founded reasons to be negative or upset. This is not a bias or line in the sand created by users but one of googles making.  
  • Maybe if Google released apps on Windows there would be less hate from some.   Have to say it's always amazed me.. since they are in the business of selling to consumers you'd expect them to release apps to allow them to drive consumers to their offerings.  Oh well, their choice.
  • No, google has stated they are an advertising company, so they are not selling TO the consumer, they are selling their consumer portfolio to their clients. Consumers are a commodity to them.
  • Yeah, the problem with Google is that its slap on the face not to release apps intentionally to Windows platform. Yes there is an web app, but why not an actual app? There are some services of Google make more sense to be an app, like YouTube, Hangout, Drive (app), Gmail (seriously) and Maps. They intentionally want to cripple Windows tablets and phone, because of marketshare or because of threat? We don't exactly know, but their strategy is quite effective to cripple Windows indeed, at least for the eyes of the masses. Heck, even Apple are more friendly to Microsoft. Their desktop apps like iTunes (even you don't like it) is as full-featured from their OS X counterpart (I used to have Mac too). They even push service like iCloud for Windows. Though we all know that Apple wants also to cripple Microsoft, but we're expecting that from Apple and we're not surprise or even mad about that. Microsoft and Apple are complimentary competitors ever since, while Google is trolling Microsoft and they just make apps for Apple platform since its still popular. If Apple wasn't that popular and Android totally dominates the mobile space, let's see how they even treat Apple. Another thing, I guess that Google as a company and its executives maybe for some reason it feels like there is a personal bias against Microsoft in general. If they just make a respectable apps to Windows platform, maybe people here won't feel hate towards Google. Personally I don't hate them, I'm just kind of irrated to their behavior towards the platform I mainly use. I use some of their service like YouTube (of course), Maps, and sometimes Hangouts (because some of my friends and collegues prefer it). I even have Gmail, but I occasionally use it. The hate also escalates during the time Microsft attempts to make good YouTube app and Google suddenly demands techincally impossible for Microsoft to do. It's like saying "No thanks! We don't want you to make YouTube app for us!".
  • Remember, that youtube app google blocked from accessing their API was made in conjunction with google.  They supplied staff to help MS make it, and 1 week after release they block it for totally bullcrap reasons.
  • Oh no! Someone has a different opinion than you do. Of course, it is perfectly fine for you and all your friends to run around and spread your Microsoft hate, but someone expresses their opinion and they must be shut down because we cannot have someone who thinks differently. If your fragile psyche cannot take someone criticizing a company, then I suggest you try to leave the internet because you are going to find life to be very, very tough.
  • You're late, it happened up top already.. :)
  • Its cool to hate wooaaaaa. You should listen to Offspring!
  • I never knew there was an app from google in the store... Passssssssss
  • Cortana all the way. Thanks, but no thanks. Fü©k Google
  • Go to bing.com and type in m.i.a. google shirt
  • Yea Bing is not so great worldwide. Also Google scholar beats mas any day.
  • Know Your Evil. :P But perhaps they now change their ways given how easy it is/will be to port Android apps to the potential hundreds of millions of customers on Windows platforms.
  • Google! Just won't play nice. It would be poetic justice if W10/WP10 siphoned off enough of their customers for them to start making apps for W10/WP10 and then for them to be ignored. Maybe some day... One can only dream....
  • Personally, I'm eagerly waiting for this: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/08/waiting-for-androids-inevitable-s...
  • Thanks for the link to that article, I already knew most of it but to read the specifics of it was cool, the part about how they praises Microsoft was refreshing too
  • I had no idea about that vulnerability. But wow...that's just scary! I'll gladly take Windows Mobile over that OS anyday.
  • Wow, that article is just horrible.
  • There seems to be a new android security disaster hitting the news every week, but idiots keep supporting the platform.  People know about, or have at least heard of these problems, but they keep buying cheap low spec'd android devices over and over.
  • Sorry Google, I'll use Bing for general searches
  • PROBABLY WILL NEVER BE UPDATED LIKE WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 VERSION GOOGLE NEVER SUPPORT ANYTHING
  • Google supports something! You know what it is????????? MY D*CK! :)
  • I don't want to know how Google supports your d*ck! ;)
  • He is limp. Ha xD
  • Can I take pictures? ;) haha jk
  • Now they need to make their Xbox One YouTube app into a universal app... please...
  • And add voice search to it.
  • *inserts 'but why' gif
  • Right?!
  • rofl F them
  • Google means nothing to me anymore because I stopped using anything related to google a long time ago.
  • Really? Don't you use YouTube and/or Google Maps? Those are services that dificult to replace...
  • YouTube yes, but google maps big no, it's horrible on any computer I've ever been forced into using it, like when a website makes you
  • Then you haven't let go of Google services it seems. Posted via the Windows Central App on my Lumia 640 or using the Android Version which is free*
  • I'd hardly call youtube a 'service'.  A platform might be a better description.  An 'advertising and monetizing platform' would be a better one. Just as getting an email from someone who uses gmail isn't 'using' their service, watching a video because someone has uploaded it to youtube isn't using the service either, especially when so many people just embed the videos in FB or wherever rather than get their friends to actually go to youtube.com and seek out their stupid cat video.
  • Ill stick with Bing, thank you. At this point, the only google service I use is Youtube. Once google fiber is in my area, that'll be the second, but their horrible support for windows phone has turned me off.
  • You won't use Google internet services but you are happy to use Google's internet? It's like the worst way of privacy suicide!
  • Any computer service exploits 'privacy' anyways, so may as well get great internet for it.
  • I'm hoping Google Fiber comes to my area just so other internet options around here get cheaper/better to compete.
  • Well, unless I want incredibly slow internet, my only option is Comcast. So when google fiber is here, it's basically choosing between two evils. Might as well go with the faster one.
  • Google is a much bigger evil
  • Faster evil it is then!
  • Thanks for the support Google!
  • I used to think i'd miss Google apps if i switched to a Windows Tablet and phone (from Android), and ive come to realise that, really, i wouldnt. Google Maps is better than Here, or Bing, but thats about it. Gmail can be accessed from any email app, G+ was just about Google and Youtube was 99.99% boring junk.
  • If I want to use google I'll go to Google.com. But as for me and my household, we are a Google free zone.
  • Same on You sir :) here It's bing.com
  • Sorry I don't use Google products.
  • Hahaha...folks at Google are such comedians...
  • Maybe Microsoft should send them a cake... for getting their once in a millenia update out the door!!!
  • not just any cake ;) a TOXIC one....
  • Calm down Satan..
  • I won't be searching with it. You guys can have at it if you like
  • thnx groogle but no thnx.  
  • I wonder why release this app and not at least allow Microsoft to make your other apps. But if YouTube on Xbox will be on the unified store then it will work on phone and desktop right or no? Lol
  • The YouTube app on Xbox is literally a webwrapper for "youtube . com/tv"
  • Its almost a slap to winpho fans. Microsoft need to ban everything google including chrome in windows since they think they're so big now. Lets se them survive without windows.
  • Thank you Google, but no thank you.  Bing / Cortana get the job done for me just fine.  You are not missed on Windows Phone, and I have no regrets about moving away from you on desktop.
  • Wish they would do the apps that actually matter (YouTube)
  • I love how MS puts in the effort to bring exclusive apps to other operating systems but Google and iOS refuse to release their apps on Windows. Why is Microsoft playing so nice when others choose not to?
  • Because Google already has all their services available on the platform that Microsoft dominates with +90% marketshare - Windows. Windows PHONE (or Windows 10 Mobile, call it whatever you want) on the other hand has 2.7% marketshare worldwide. Therefore, on mobile, it's Microsoft that has to reach out to where the users are to provide their services in the platform - mobile - that Google dominates with +80% marketshare.   It's a question of going where the users are instead of waiting and hoping users will come to them. You don't see Google waiting for PC users to go to Chromebooks ;)   As for Apple...Apple is a separate World. They don't reach out to anyone unless they REALLY have to (like Google maps on iOS and iTunes on Windows).
  • Considering that W10M is the exact same OS that is used on desktops, laptops and tablets I would say that the 2.7% you quote is about to grow!!!
  • Except they can continue to ignore everything that isn't laptop and desktop.
  • Explain then DJCBS, who google sues developers who make their own WP apps for google services like youtube.  Its not that they just don't support it, its that they go out of their way to stop everyone else from supporting it as well, which is just small minded and petty to the extreme.  Actually, that describes much of google perfectly.
  • I'll stick with Bing, thanks. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Now, they just need to put as much effort into typing "O - K" in an email to https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • Ah not windows phone:p
  • "Google has never make any indications it plans to release any native apps for Windows 10"   Ok, let's think this through, shall we? WHY should Google bother to have any Windows 10 APPS created? They already have ALL their services on Windows 10. Through any browser of your choice and even more through Chrome. Actually, the fact that this Google Search app even exists is a miracle if you think about it, SPECIALLY after the demise of Windows RT. Google doesn't need to have any Google APPS on Windows. Because the only Windows they need to support - full blown Windows 10 - already supports their services. Heck, their services were created on top of PC Windows. And therefore, no, Google has no need to develop Windows 10 Universal apps. Because the only thing a W10 app would benefit would be Windows Phone. And Google has made it abundantly clear they're not wasting time on that particular platform, even if Microsoft tries to pretend Windows Phone 10 is desktop Windows 10. And on the Xbox One, they already have the YouTube app.   So instead of going on with false hope or irrational hate, maybe some people here should stop the Google-hate and be glad Google Search is even still in the Windows Store for all the RT-owners. Because Google, with Windows 10, could have simply removed the app and be done with it.  
  • Be glad that what? Bing has an app. Agreed their services can be accessed via Web but to say Windows people should be glad isn't the right thing to say. MS has alternative services to rival google expect YouTube. If it were YouTube maybe I would be glad, not Google search...seriously!!!!
  • Bing is NOT an alternative to Google Search. Not if you're outside the USA. Take Europe, for example. Google rules with +95% marketshare when it comes to search engine. Bing is utter crap here and NOT a viable option.   Also, Bing has an app...how many people actually use it? Also, Bing belongs to Microsoft. Of course they'd make an app for their own service. So, yeah, be glad that at least there's an app for the few people still with Windows RT devices. And this Google Search app *may* become a Windows 10 Universal app (since there's already a Google Search app on Windows Phone too). If they had axed this app, you can be sure that the WP app would go next.   You may not like it, but the vast majority of the world does NOT use or care for Bing. Microsoft knows that. Pity you don't want to accept a simple truth. Also, it's irrelevant if Microsoft has or doesn't have alternatives to Google services. The point here is what CONSUMERS want. Not what you want them to want. That's why Microsoft took their services to Android and iOS. To appeal to the users to use them. But if a user wants Gmail and Google Search, and it's not available on a platform, they'll more likely ditch the platform before they ditch the services.
  • Speak for yourself but here in the UK, yes we are still part of Europe although hopefully not for much longer, Bing functions perfectly fine!!!
  • Hi Hitler
  • Exactly. No amount of tin-foil-hat hysteria will overcome how awful Bing is in most countries.
  • This Google Search app also doubles as a YouTube app
  • I would think the only reason for apps would be smaller Win 10 tablets as apps can be more attractive on those than using the browser. As for the desktop, yeah seems irrelevant
  • When discussing the count of apps, the iOS/Android fanboys like to talk about the app gap, how Google doesn't have their services as a Win store app. But then those same people like to talk about how a majority (far from it, but they are not exactly rational) of WP and Windows store apps are wrappers around web sites. Of course, this would contradict their argument, where they simultaneously complain that there are not web wrappers in the store, and there are web wrappers. And then I read the last part of your comment - one of the "LEAVE GOOGLE ALONE!" whiners.
  • That is an app gap and a really unfortunate one! Google services are popular and yes their might be third party services that work better than the stock Youtube app but nevertheless their is no official version of any application and these web wrappers for some services like G+ are absolutely terrible. Web wrappers does not cut it. And then their are those that they to justify the lack of Google apps, sad sad sad Posted via the Windows Central App on my Lumia 640 or using the Android Version which is free*
  • Ive been on windows lumia 930 for over 1 year now and i love it, 8.1 mobile best os ever but soz there is a serious app gAP.  Mainly in the last few weeks i have run out of good quallity games and i dont mean flappy boirds, candy crush or crossy road, they are just basic rubish.  Also we need google apps and we need snapchat if windows phone is to make a dent otherwise microsoft will have to offer something incerdible to entice people and soz continuam as good as it is isnt a game changer.    Also i miss haveig my bank app and flick nfl and even vodaphopne in the uk doesnt suport the windows platform with a app, i proobably have about 1-2 mpore years before i give in and gop back to apple, and i really dont want to do that but even my plex and netflix app cant cast on my samsung miricast tv when the cheaper tube cast can, so its a problam that is mounting.  Sad thing is it isnt the phone or os or even microsoft at fault as they do have the superior product i personally feel.  Maybe google know that and releaseing google apps will hurt them alot.
  • No.  The ONLY people it would benefit are GOOGLE USERS. Google behave like the movie studios who constantly alienate cinema goers by labeling them all as pirates.  All they are doing is hurting themselves a bit.
  • Still won't use Google.
  • Only thing I thank google for is the killing off of g+ from YouTube.
  • Because of that dumb thing I accidentally deleted everything I had related to Google services including Yahoo, YouTube, Gmail accounts and many other accounts from different websites I used to login with Google credentials
  • Seems faster
  • Sometimes I wish i could do without their YouTube but honestly YouTube is the only Google app i do desperately want them to bring to Windows. Though enjoying mytube! For YouTube Stuff
  • i recomend metro tube but incase you need to cast then use tubecast too.  Its great
  • Well..good for them. I don't need google search app on my PC. I have three browsers. Maybe they should add this updated app to the phones.,
  • If MS would ban Google or any of their Apps
    They would do exactly what Google want them to do.
    Its better to keep their way and Image
  • lol, fk you google!
  • I just hope they update waze...been so long...
  • Waze had updates in the past... Before Google took over. It's Google preventing the updates and not the Waze team
  • Go die google.
  • OH RIGHT! I HAD ENOUGH................... IM GONNA START A DEADLY WAR AGAINST THOSE BABOONS!!!! WHOSE WITH ME?
  • It seems like everyone here is disappointed about Google and moved to WP for that reason (same here) lol. Don't hate on them though. A few years back I bet you had MS hate as well and look at you now. Yeah..
  • What a mockery...
  • I'd use Bing a million times over before I used that crap.
  • It's that bad huh?  I suspect that some WP users who live in countries not supported by Bing will like this. I don't know where you live, but I know I'm spoiled because I live in Microsoft's home country.
  • as i windows fan i definatly prefer google search at this time.
  • This app will not be installed on my PC. Although, I thought that the Windows Store wasn't popular enough for Google to develop apps?
  • Oh, it's afraid! The best thing that Google made for Windows community was not make its sh** apps to us. Microsoft services are to much better! The only service that I really use of Google is YouTube, because it's very popular and it has a lot of content. But I won't make content for it anymore. All my videos are been hosted on Vimeo.
  • Id like to have Hangouts and Google+ the rest I am fine without
  • My friends are all on Android and use Hangouts to chat throughout the day. So Hangouts is the big one I'm curious will ever come to my Windows Phone. The app says it can be installed on up to ten WIndows 10 devices so I'd be curious how it plays out on mobile. Even on a Surface though, a Hangout via the Gmail app isn't ideal. I always viewed this app as just a web wrapper so I'm not too optimistic. Given the hatred in these ridiculous comments, I assume someone will tell me to tell my friends to use another platform to chat. Think about that for a moment. I'm the lone guy with the 3% marketshare phone. What kind of a-hole would I be to try to convince everyone to sign up for different services just because I've got the rare phone?
  • All you have to do is keep reminding that google is an advertising agency that collects, stores and then uses their private and personal information to sell them shit they don't need or want (and take a healthy cut via paid-for search results).Kepe at them, and you;ll find then more open to switching to a hangout-type service that doesn't treat them like a cash cow.
  • ive been prety much doing that since early 2000 with skype.
  • Also I thought when you make a windows 10 app it becomes universal auto-matically? no?
  • Everyone on here needs a reality check. The lack of Google apps is doing harm to your sacred platform. That's fine if you don't want/need them, but you are in the minority. It's time to put your big boy pants on and stop acting like 3 year olds. The comments displayed here are a good representation as to why Windows Central gets a bad rap on the other Mobile Nations sites. Take a look at Android Central and they have nothing but positive things to say about Windows and Windows phones.
  • Agree completely there mate. Hate for other platforms and services is really childish and has no use anyway. Completely got rid of Google services myself with the exception of YouTube, but hating Google and hoping they will never publish their apps on Windows is just dumb. I hope that these WC people learn to understand that some day.
  • Maybe you should point out those comments then because all I see on any Android fansite is negativity towards Windows and Windows Phone. You also need to read up on the whole Youtube debacle and then you'll see exactly why people on here have such disdain for anything Google.

  • If you don't know why we hate Scroogle and their products. Don't talk. Scroogle is the one who started it. And I never see crapdroid fan talk good about wp, windows.
  • You have to be kidding.  Go to the android site and all you get is MS sucks, google is teh best, wearing google glass makes me look cool and not a douchebag at all etc etc etc.
  • i certainly dont get that imprseeion from prety much most reviewers or forums i go on.  It seems to be a attitude by everyone, windows iphone and android that each other sucks, so its not android are so nice and windows arent, They are just all pationate people about their tech.  Nothing to grow up about.  Iphone 6 years here was fantastic, windows phone 1 year and im sold, android 6 months= for me only not a fun experience.  Thats not biasy thats just plain my experience.
  • We have dailymotion instead of YouTube BUT, its not that popular as YouTube.
  • If only Google takes more time to make Windows 10 apps like YouTube, Docs and more.
  • We'll snatch all your apps soon, by way of Project [whatever], which will enable Android apps to run in Windows. Although, I only need YouTube.
  • Lol. That's not how it works. You need to do some more reading (or improve your reading comprehension).
  • Snatch them. Um no, who do you think would've done that process. Google duh! They would be the ones doing that. Posted via the Windows Central App on my Lumia 640 or using the Android Version which is free*
  • Google has to be the one who ports/submits their YouTube app to our store. They only thing is that Windows 10 made it easier for developers (Google included) to create an app coming from Android to Windows 10. Don't expect much of it (yet).
  • SCREW THEM. I don't need them and I don't use their search/services!
  • Isn't it interesting that they updated it so quickly but there aren't enough users for a YouTube app?
  • Nah this is Google showing they are capable of making Windows apps, but refusing to actually make them with only one exception: Search (which is useless as the browser version does everything the same and just as fast). Oh well, good for them.
  • LOL YEP ! fuck Google!
  • Did they really? But why? Ohh, there are 27 million reasons for that ;)
  • I use this app 99x more than Cortana/Bing. Bing I use only when I need directions to somewhere or call directly from it. If you dont know what im talking about search for any local school for example. It will show their address (Get direction) and phone # both you can "activate" just by pressing on them
  • We have a heartbeat! Somebody do something! ;)
  • How generous.
  • I don't use Google services really anymore because of its blatant lack of support for anything Windows...but also, it's important to note that 75-80% of phones use Android, and therefore, Google services. I really think this is why Windows Mobile isn't adopted as much for this one reason. I have too many friends on Google+ and Hangouts that can't get hold of me simply because of my phone choice. As much as I despise Google for this, it's a harsh reality for many, including myself. Maybe Google will realize the importance of its services and one day release at least some version of an app that allows for interfacing with their services. But hey...this is only my hope. The harsh reality of it is that they could give a damn.....and that's just despicable, in my opinion.
  • The only people are hurting with this petty vindictive attitude are their own customers (and potential ones).
  • Google's hated comments are in 3.... 2..... ah, nevermind, they've started it.
  • Material Design aka Metro-inspired
  • I think you meant 'copied'.  But of course, just like apple, when google do anything its a first even if someone else has been doing it better for longer its still a first because google is doing it.
     
  • They can keep it
  • Meh, who needs Google search anymore. I use Cortana and Bing and they're fantastic. Zero issues.
  • Why are they so unfriendly to Microsoft?
  • Ads,browser war,search engine,etc
  • Dear Google, update the phone app the never ending resuming is a turn-off. Will try the windows app. I use what works, Gmail, hangouts, chrome, etc.
  • Lol wow google.
  • Fuck them :)
  • This app should be banned completely from windows. Period. It's because of Google that we don't have a Youtube app. MS needs to ban this search app, Chrome, and whatever other garbage that comes from google. EOD.
  • I haven't used google in a very long time. I don't use any of there services. And have no need for them.
  • Goofle sucks
  • People here are either idiot or doesn't really know anything.. GMail App, you can freaking use it in Mail.. You can even add your GMail Account and all your contacts there will be sync.. YouTube App, are you kidding me? Why would I use ad-filled scumbag YouTube app? I am much happier with MyTube and TubeCast.. No freaking ADS.. Google Chrome, the fat is that? I'm using IE and Edge and works like Chrome.. You're talking about average consumer who only knows how to browse.. Then IE and Edge should be enough for them.. ScrewGoogle
  • Maps, Cloud Storage, everything works better with Microsoft.. Skype? Bing? Your argument is too old and is already invalid..
  • Bing works better? LOL
  • Well I know I get a lot less spammy paid-for results trying to sell me crap when I use bing.
  • If I want to find information in my own language Bing is very very very poor compared to Google :(
  • Google apps inside google search in disguise.
  • Chrome in disguise! Mwuahahahahahahah
  • The bible said there would be rumors of this, and then the end will come..
  • No, thanks.
  • I don't like google but because of adwords its a necessity for business
  • Get away google!
  • What a useless app
  • I don't think that google will ever make apps for windows 10
  • Gogol, a great Russian writer.
  • Bing baby Bing Bing baby
  • What a bunch of jerks. lol.
  • To second another comment, I think that MS should remove the app and state some BS reason that it doesn't align with their future roadmap and so on so forth. Google, the company that got absolutely filthy effin' rich off of Microsoft's OS and this is how they repay them. **slowclap**
  • It's been years since I've used anything Google, other than the occasional YouTube. When people say "Google it" I correct them and say, "You mean bing it". Bing isn't my favorite name in the world, but the service is pretty fantastic.
  • Same here, except YouTube, Scroogle is useless for me
  • Google only match for lagdroid users.. Go away from beauty windows
  • oh yeah....
  • Google Chrome is superior to IE
  • Edge is superior to chrome
  • +525
  • Edge is completely useless at this point. Get back to me when it's more customizable and has extensions. Reading mode is the only reason to open Edge right now.  
  • I understand why Windows users have a grudge against google, but too many of you are as arrogant as iOS users 
  • Ahh..as far as I am concern, they can keep it for themselves...I am Google free.
  • Scroogle, remove it from windows store. Its useless
  • Actually you're right it's not needed
  • I have google chrome,internet explorer,cortana ,why in Gods name would i download this or to be very harsh why would i download any app from the store ,windows 10 letting me down !
  • If it is an universal app then why is not available for phones?
  • It can not be used in the current build but 10240 plus
  • Google chrome browser does not support multi finger scrolling and full HD resolution. Hence I never use it. I use IE 11. Youtube and gmail are the only two applications of google that are worth your attention.
  • Not interested in a Google Search app until there is an official YouTube app from Google.
  • Haha, google, thank you for the entertainment to windows users who you hate, especially windows phone users like me.. Nope, not interested in your "only" app.. Insincere..
  • My favorite thing about these articles are the rage comments
  • What will I do with a search app??
  • Search, maybe.....

  • I was hoping Google Now
  • Microsoft and Google are equally important parts of my computing life. I wish they could get along a little better, but it's understandable.      
  • This is actually very nice since Microsoft doesn't let me use Cortana in my country. (which is silly, because I don't mind having an English Cortana.)
  • If Google really hated Windows Phone, this app wouldn't exist in Google Play. https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.anrdoezrs.net%2F... The lack of Google apps for Windows Phone is obviously a business decision based upon market share, not emotions. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • They could have at least made it for Windows 10. Market share huh
  • There you go Laura.... making sense again......lol As a Android user who really loves to use Microsoft services, it pains me to know how vulnerable Android truly is, but how incomplete WP is. While there are those who hate Google and anything that they offer, until Microsoft takes over and builds alternative apps that the majority of the world will switch to, I will have to rely on them. I give Microsoft 2 years to get Bing's search algorithms up to par with Google search for Android with the inclusion of it in Win 10, and with all the improvements in Outlook for Android even less time than that for it to be accepted as good or prefered. I have no doubt that the banking industry will be back and most games too because of 10. Here's the fly in the ointment though which bothers me greatly. Advertising and the availability of the phones. If Microsoft really elects to go it alone without selling in the carriers stores, what mechanism is in place to stay in front of the consumer? Having 1 billboard on 1 interstate, is not going to be as good as having 100. Microsoft has to understand this and open more stores or even Kiosk in malls or other stores. They have to re-educate the people who might be interested in a Windows phone by being easily accessible to get them. They have to offer some type of financing as well, since all carries are going away with subsidized plans eventually. IMHO they need to hook up with Walmart and have a presence in their stores. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Now that's rich I mean really
  • I think this is a sign that by the end of the year we will have all Google Services on windows 10. Gmail, Youtube, Drive and Hangouts would be enough
  • This doesn't look any different from the website. Is it really hard for people to open their web browsers and go to google.com. It only make sense if they made it like google now and also provided their other apps.
  • Go to he'll scroogle.....
  • I hate myself for using Google search, not the app, but when I use Bing, I get full page of irrelevant search results. Never find what I'm looking for.
  • FüK u Google we don't need you
  • Kindly f*** off Scroogle! :)
  • Wish MS would learn from Google
  • you would think people would at least be happy theres another half decent app in the store for people to choose from, i checked it out on my Vi8 tablet running Windows10 x32 and it runs very well and looks good,the more quality apps in the Windows Store the better
  • So many whingebags on this site acting like they have never Googled anything before
  • The only reason this app exists is because MS was forcing bing on to users example bing search in edge, cortana etc. Now that millions have windows 10 and google seems to be kinda sorta nudged out of the way they want to get their strong hold back in the ad and search engine business. If they were genuinely interested ths should have been done ages ago by bringing all their apps to windows 8.1    
  • Now What is google &youtube xD?? I've cme across myTube& bing
  • That Xbox One YouTube App is a webpage. YouTube.com/TV it's the same as Amazon Fire TV, and what TV YouTube "Apps" see.
  • Screw Google (Alphabet) or whatever else they choose to call themselves. I'm perfectly happy with Bing.
  • unless google play ball and join the 21st centry and suport windows i have no intention of useing them.  Exept you tube because well thats their monopoly.
  • Google will never release any real apps for Windows 10 is just a fact Google have more to lose that they winning of release the apps.  A Store with out Gmail, Youtube, etc etc is a OS some never gonna hit any hige market share.  Why would Google release any apps and give Windows Phone, Windows in fact rise with like 10-20% market share instent of today is like 1% market share. Windows Phone die out becouse Google dont release apps for it. 
  • Office is the only superior suite by MS, with OneNote being an excellent addition. Also Skype and Wunderlist have been good buys. But Google is undisputably a far better search engine, Chrome is a better browser than Edge (that doesn't even translate webpages) and the OS lacks Cortana in Dutch. This is ridiculous.
