Google looks to offer cloud services in China

Google will partner with Tencent to bring its services to the billionaire market

To be specific, there have been reports that Google is working on censored versions of its Search and News apps.

Alphabet Inc's Google is in talks with Tencent Holdings Ltd, Inspur Group and other Chinese companies to offer its cloud services in the mainland, Bloomberg reported here on Friday, citing people familiar with the discussions. And most recently, it seems that the company wants to expand its influence in this market by bringing the G Suite service to China through its domestic partners and services that provide cloud storage inland.

A report from Bloomberg says Tencent can encourage its cloud hosting partners to use Google services.

It's unclear whether these partnership efforts will come to fruition, and Bloomberg's source added that the recent trade tensions between China and the U.S. might complicate any agreement.

Representatives from Google, Tencent, and Inspur either haven't or wouldn't respond to requests for comment, which isn't surprising. In any case, it'll be interesting to see how these discussions proceed.

This year, it started building a cloud data center region in Hong Kong and opened an artificial intelligence research center in Beijing.

Big partners like Tencent or Inspur in the Chinese market will most likely help Google accomplish these goals against the government's censorship.

In January, Google struck a patent-sharing deal with Tencent. Tensorflow, a coding library for AI applications created by Google, is growing in popularity with researchers and software developers in China.
