A few years ago, Google hired its first employee to run a mobile-optimized Google Webmaster Tools team.
But the move made headlines, and it was only the beginning of Google’s efforts to make mobile a better fit for its employees.
Now, Google is working to make sure its employees are not stuck in the past, and making sure they don’t end up at a job they don’ t want.
“Mobile-optimization is becoming more and more important to our businesses, and this is a key step to ensure that our mobile team has the best opportunity to succeed,” said Chris Wysopal, the company’s executive vice president of product management and strategy.
“It’s not just about mobile; it’s about the people in the team.
If you want people to do great work, you have to make it easy for them to work on mobile.”
Google’s goal is to make web designers, designers and developers mobile-friendly, and the company is working hard to make that happen.
For one, Google has launched its new Webmaster Suite, a suite of apps that give web designers and developer a more mobile-focused interface.
It also launched the new Mobile Workflow, which lets teams take a more traditional approach to work.
“We want to empower our people to be mobile-ready, and we’re making sure our apps and platforms are helping them do that,” Wysopol said.
“We’re taking the mobile experience to the next level with a range of new mobile-oriented features, including the new Webmasters and Workflow apps.”
Google has also launched a mobile web designer for its new Workflow team, but the app is not available for developers to download yet.
Google has also added an integrated Android-based developer tools tool, which allows developers to get started quickly and easily.
Google says that, over the past few years, mobile web design has become the dominant tool for websites.
According to Wysapol, “we’re seeing mobile-first websites with mobile-native support, which has resulted in more responsive design.”
The Google Web Master Tools team is part of the team that makes mobile apps for Google’s Chrome browser.
Wysopl said that the work on the mobile-centric apps is being done “in collaboration with the rest of the Webmasters team, and that the app has been tested by thousands of Webmasters, with over 30,000 people using it.”
“We are seeing great results from using mobile-based apps to create mobile-responsive websites, and our team has seen great engagement from the Android team,” he added.
Google is not alone in making the move to make its employees more mobile.
Facebook has also been working on a mobile experience for its workforce.
And Microsoft is expanding its efforts to help employees work more on mobile, and to make them feel at home on their mobile devices.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently told analysts that the company has seen its mobile-adapted Office 365 desktop clients make “a difference in how people work.”
“People use their devices more on a daily basis.
It’s no wonder that Microsoft is focusing on creating a mobile platform for employees to work in the office,” Nadell said.
Microsoft’s Office 365 Desktop Client for Windows is the latest app for the Windows 8 operating system that has been released to the public, but its mobile app is the first to be rolled out to the general public.
Nadell says that the Office 365 Mobile Client for Android and iOS have also made a “huge difference” in helping employees work on their phones.
“There’s no better way to build the mobile platform that’s best for your employees,” Nidlella said.
Wysopol added that Microsoft has seen a significant growth in mobile-related applications, which is why it is focusing its efforts on the platform to bring the best of mobile into the workplace.
