Google said they didn't change their service when it stops supporting WP8.
These practices whether from MS, Google, Apple, or others really must stop. Having feet in both the MS an Google spaces - refusing Apple's obsessive control over MY STUFF - these practices are REALLY bothersome - no mater who engages in them.
Disappointing. All of you please STOP trying to force your customers. Build a good/better product and they will come.
