In a subsequent series of policy adjustments, Google's service is almost completely cut off from outside China. In addition to search, Chinese users can not access Google Play, Gmail, Google + and other services. Although Google's Android system is hundreds of millions of Chinese smartphone users, but most people can not use the distinctive framework on Android Google services, and even a lot of people are not even part of the Google Android system do not know.

It seems, Google Cultural Institute is the combination of Chinese traditional handmade arts & ldquo; culture first & rdquo; part, then we should probably expect Google will be more services back to China.
The good news is, Google has reversed translation, maps and other services on its servers in Beijing and Shanghai. In addition users can freely install and use Google's service in the framework of the Android phones, including Google Play, Google Maps and Android Pay.
The signs are that, Google will serve to bring back China has done enough to prepare. Although the earliest possible restoration of service is especially customized version of the Google Play store, but intense competition in the Chinese Android phone market, mobile phone manufacturers have been very difficult to do the hardware business. So Google Play market promotion in China is also facing difficulties.
Have left the Chinese market six years of Google, not only to exploit the market has been faced with depleted problem occurs again, the company will also make the Chinese consumers feel very strange. And to & ldquo; culture first & rdquo; as a way to return to China, after all, a clever detour.
