In the past, one thing that’s always separated Google from its rivals has been the ability to use Google services across many platforms.

Whether you owned an iPhone, an iPad, a Mac, or a Windows PC, you always had access to Google services like Search, Maps, and Docs. Of course, Google would prefer that you use Android and Chromebooks, but that rarely felt like a requirement.At this year’s Google I/O conference, we’re starting to see a different strategy emerge.
