After more than a year of remote collaboration, many people are showing signs of digital fatigue. Throughout the pandemic, millions of employees bridged the physical distances with their colleagues by making themselves more available, joining a deluge of virtual meetings, and leaning into a dizzying array of tools and applications. As part of our mission to build the future of work, we’re addressing these challenges in Google Workspace.
As we announced today at I/O, we’re launching smart canvas—a new product experience that delivers the next evolution of collaboration for Google Workspace. Between now and the end of the year, we’re rolling out innovations that make it easier for people to stay connected, focus their time and attention, and transform their ideas into impact.
And that’s a wrap for Google I/O 2021! Its virtual nature this year surely didn’t stop its viral nature, as we saw over 215,000 registrants, over 235 sessions, 186,565 badges earned, and dozens of workshops and AMAs. Viewers from around the world once again tuned in to learn about the latest launches from Google, including Android, WearOS, Flutter, and TensorFlow. Developers came to sharpen their skills by learning the newest tools, APIs, and improved experiences to help them build.
Google Cloud has become a big part of the excitement as it unveiled a number of major launches around AI, Google Workspace, and sustainability, including a new unified AI platform, rich collaborative experiences, and breakthroughs in carbon-aware computing. If you couldn’t make it and want a quick list of the best cloud sessions, check out my cloud developer’s guide to I/O. To get to the heart of Google Cloud I/O announcements, read on.
Microsoft currently features old-school solutions that are growing relatively slowly (Office and Windows) and new cloud solutions that are growing tremendously (Dynamics 365 and Azure). If the company stays in its current form, Microsoft stock will keep steadily advancing. But because the company’s total top and bottom lines are never going to increase much more than 30% or 35% per year, the shares are never going to deliver truly huge returns. But that would change if the company was to spin off its rapidly growing cloud businesses. In such a scenario, the current owners of Microsoft stock would receive shares in a cutting edge cloud services company (let’s call it Azure), and shares in a company focused on providing old, mostly PC-based software to businesses and consumers.
Google Cloud today announced the beta launch of Game Servers, a managed service that provides game developers with the usual backend services for running their games, including multi-player games, in the company's cloud. It's worth stressing that these are not game streaming servers but solely meant to make it easier for game developers to build, scale and manage the backend services for their games.
