Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

>80% was in the 90s. And no, browser-stats of a hand-full of selected US websides are not representative. Today its 20%. See http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/12/13/windows_market_share_just_2...

Those 20% are all Windows desktop (including XP+Vista+Win7+Win8) with backwards-compatible win32-API and CE+WinPhone7+WinPhone8+SurfaceRT with backwards-incompatible Metro-API and no win32-support combined.

Google services and apps that did run on Windows 7 will continue to work on Windows 8. Its only about the total incompatible WP+RT. Those count of <2% market share. A rounding error that isn't even listed any longer in most market-share stats.
