The current times around us as well as everyone in the world has been tough, tensed and gloomy due to the crazy corona pandemic erupted worldwide. Even at such times we do see a ray of hope when some really astonishing things happen. One of them which is a big deal is the tech world is the coming together of Apple and Google for something. Yes, you have read it right.
Google and Apple unveiled recently a joint initiative to use smartphones to do the job of contact tracing of corona virus infected patients. This move has brought together two of the biggest operating system companies of mobile phones in the world to work together for helping contain the spread of virus. These giants would be working together in creating an in system app which would be used on both the platforms for contact tracing as well as identifying the people infected with the virus and keeping the uses informed about the health status of the people they come in contact with.
“All of us at Apple and Google believe there has never been a more important moment to work together to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems” The companies said in the joint statement issued by them.
This move will have two long term effects, one is that by coming together for such a initiative they have proved their greatness by proving that rivalry can also take a pause sometimes for a cause greater than it and secondly that may be this initiative becomes the stepping stone for both these tech giants for coming together for more such collaborations in the future.
