Google Employees “Dogfooding” a Mobile Lab
The big Android news this weekend is piecing together whether or not Google employees were given handsets which will end up being “The Google Phone” that’s often been rumored.Â We posted an article earlier today about the subject and it seems Google has something official to say about the matter.
At Google, we are constantly experimenting with new products and technologies, and often ask employees to test these products for quick feedback and suggestions for improvements in a process we call dogfooding (from “eating your own dogfood”). Well this holiday season, we are taking dogfooding to a new level.We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a device that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this device with Google employees across the globe. This means they get to test out a new technology and help improve it.Unfortunately, because dogfooding is a process exclusively for Google employees, we cannot share specific product details. We hope to share more after our dogfood diet.
