In a new report put forward by TechCrunch, Google has a new social networking application coming up at May’s Google I/O event.
According to the publication, the search engine giant has not given up on getting a slice of the social networking market and this time, we’ll get a group photo editing and sharing application. This will not be the first time Google has given the social media a try. We’ve seen the likes of Google+ and Google Hangouts for a while now, but none of these two hasn’t been able to attract the largest of followings.
Recently, the tech giant came in with Google Allo and Duo, two apps that are meant to substitute Hangouts on Android devices, but so far, the reaction towards them is not the best. In fact, none of these apps has been able to match the likes of Facebook Messenger, Skype or even WhatsApp for that matter. But if the latest rumor is to be believed, Google is giving it another try with an app that will let users in small groups edit, organize as well as tag other photos that have already been shared.
If you’ve heard of Path, an app where people can capture and share moments, be it from photos or even songs, well, this should just be Google’s answer to it. TechCrunch believes that this social app will be unveiled at the upcoming Google I/O 2017, an event that will be held in May, just like it happened with Google Allo and Duo at last year’s event. With Google already boasting the Photos app, it’s possible that this social app could come with some elements from this app or even the likes of Instagram and Snapchat.
Apparently, Google has indeed acknowledged that there’s indeed such an app, however, the tech giant notes that it is just an experiment. With this in mind, don’t get your hopes too high (just in case you were) because anything can happen, including not there being the app’s launch at all, at least at the Google I/O 2017.
We’ll for sure be eager to see what Google has made up this time as the company keeps on pushing its way into the social networking market.
