Google is reportedly scaling back its laptop and tablet ambitions.
According to a new report from Business Insider, the search giant, citing “roadmap cutbacks,” has asked a number of employees, including hardware engineers, technical program managers and program managers, to transfer away from its Google Create division. The in-house team oversaw the creation of the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate.
One source told Business Insider that the Create team had a “bunch of stuff in the works,” and added that the transfers are indicative of Google “par[ing] down the portfolio.” Many of the affected employees have reportedly asked for positions on the Pixel team.
Business Insider notes that the reassignments are temporary; it’s possible Google could later move any and all of the employees it reassigned back to the Create team.
Google declined to comment on Business Insider‘s reporting.
