Microsoft has been drumming up support for Windows 8 in recent months but all that seems to be lost on Google, which has no plans to offer business apps like Gmail or Google Drive on the new OS.

Speaking to UK technology blog V3, Clay Bavor, the product management director at Google Apps, delivered the news that will come as a blow to businesses looking to utilize Microsoft's latest operating system.

"We have no plans to build out Windows apps. We are very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8. If that changes, we would invest there, of course.” 

The Google exec added that the search giant will be looking to improve its Android and iOS apps for the most part in 2013.
