On October 28th, 2013, Google’s Joe Marini privately suggested that “Google isn’t doing a very good job of promoting the web store,” writing:
Unlike other app platforms such as IOS and Android, where their respective stores are the “only game in town” to get content for those platforms, it is entirely possible to live a happy life as a Chrome user without ever having to visit the store. As a result, we have to work harder to draw users in, but our existing marketing efforts don’t do anything to mention the store.
Will Epic try to suggest this influenced Google’s later thinking? We’ll find out after a 15-minute break.
