RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. — Just a few weeks after announcing its music subscription service, Google will be bringing it to iOS.
Sundar Pichai, the senior vice president overseeing Android and Chrome at Google, made the promise today at D11, a tech conference here.
“Users on iOS who want to use Google, we view them as Google users,” Pichai said.
Walt Mossberg, who was interviewing Pichai on stage, pointed out that Google has ported about two dozen apps to iOS, while Apple has made exactly zero Android apps. It’s a marked difference in approach, but Pichai is unconcerned.
“We care about reaching users in every corner of the world, including the 5 billion users who don’t have smartphones today,” PIchai said.
