At present, although the supply chain of Android phones and smartphones is not good, global smartphone shipments fell by 38% year-on-year in February, but as the industry's upstream technology giants gradually stopped the development of their main products because of remote work, Its subsequent impact will also be reflected in the new products of various smartphones this year.
Cause: California's local epidemic has deteriorated sharply, and Bay Area authorities have called for "isolation in place"
Google announced earlier this month that in view of the new coronavirus epidemic, the I / O developer conference originally planned for May 2020 will not host offline events with huge traffic, but Google did not explain this year in detail. We can't see the content of the original developer conference in a live broadcast. But now, this last hope is completely shattered: Google announced on March 20th local time: 2020 I / O Developer Conference is now completely canceled and "this year will not be held in any form."
Out of concern for the health and safety of developers, employees, and the local community, and in compliance with the Bay Area Government ’s “segregation in place” requirements, we regret that we will not host an I / O developer conference in any form this year.
According to a statement issued by Google on social media, the reason for the complete cancellation of the I / O Developer Conference is more because the severity of the local epidemic in the United States and California has exceeded expectations. Shelter in Place public safety guidance was issued for six counties in the Bay Area. This guidance still requires local residents to stay at home as much as possible to reduce public activity.
Google, as one of the California-based technology companies, will naturally be affected by this, but in fact, before that, Google had notified all its employees via internal mail, allowing employees of Mountain View headquarters and San Francisco office to work remotely to try their best. Reduce exposure to avoid transmission of the new coronavirus. But even if offline events are no longer held, online events through live streaming will also require a large number of Google employees to gather. With the increasingly severe local epidemic situation in California, there is no longer a way to hold a developer conference through online live streaming. Possibility.
In addition, during the epidemic, various software and office service components developed by Google, such as Google Chrome, which accounts for nearly 70% of the global browser market, and G Suite office suite, which has 2 billion monthly active users worldwide. Withstanding the test of users from all over the world during the epidemic, how to ensure that users can maintain the normal operation of their services even to a minimum to not be overwhelmed by the surge in the number of users is already a very difficult problem for Google Problem: The Chrome development team has announced that it will suspend updates to the Chrome browser and Chrome OS operating system and focus on maintaining the existing version.
