Earlier this year we reported that Google was investigating the possibility of Google Chrome on Windows Phone, which got our hopes high.

Now, it looks like the search giant has finally reached a decision and it’s simple: there won’t be Google Chrome on WP anytime soon, the reason? According to the updated post, “Chrome needs more privileges than a regular metro app so there is no simple port.”

Maybe after WP9…

    Interesting how Google accepted to build Chrome on iOS using a Web Control that is just a slow version of Safari

    Ok fine, why do you build Google search, maps, Youtube,…etc for Windows Phone and modern windows ? I guess it has access to that all the services needed for these.
