Google has opened a new office in Shenzen, its third in China.
A Google spokesperson confirmed the news after TechCrunch
obtained an internal email announcing the new office.
“We’ve heard a lot of feedback that there was a need for a space
to work from while in the area—so, after a few months of
scouting, we recently signed a lease for a serviced office in
Shenzhen. The space opened this week and is now up and running,”
the email read.
Rather than outfit an entirely new office the tech giant has
hired space within another office in Shenzen, which is considered
Silicon Valley of hardware.
According to TechCrunch, the office is likely to be used by teams
that regularly visit the city, including hardware, sales,
logistics and sourcing.
While Google does not operate its search engine business in
China, it does run its app store
Google Play and the app Google Translate. The company also
recently announced it will open an
artificial-intelligence research centre in China.
