Google is considering to open its experience centers in India. The company is said to have arrived at the decision after receiving a good response to its pop-up stores, which were recently opened in Mumbai and Delhi-NCR malls to exhibit the Google Pixel 2 smartphones.
As per the report, the stores will be opened by Q4 2018 and Google has brought a senior Apple executive onboard for helping them carry out the plans.
The report further states that two renowned malls in India have already received requests from Google for setting up the stores.
The source added that the company had set-up a ‘dark room’ in order to demonstrate that their Pixel 2 smartphones can take good low-light images. “They got good traction. So, maybe this could (have encouraged Google) for the decision (to open outlets),” the executive added.
Additionally, the source said that the upcoming Google stores will sell the company’s other products alongside the smartphones and one can also expect Google Home speakers, Chromecast, Chromebook laptops and Daydream VR headsets there.
No doubt virtual reality apps will be the next biggest boom in the android, and iPhone virtual reality apps industry. Google seems to be prepared for the boom to cringe it.
