Google: Due to the difficult economic environment that had a negative influence on its advertising business, Alphabet’s revenue and profitability in the last quarter of 2020 fell short of forecasts. Next Monday, Google is expected to release its most recent quarterly financial figures. According to CNBC, Google’s “Downtown West” campus has been prepared for building in San Jose; work was initially expected to start by the end of this year.

The project has reportedly been put on hold, and there has been no communication with the contractors regarding when construction would start up again, according to the article, which cited unidentified sources. Office space, homes, and public parks were all part of the 80-acre (32 hectare) campus’s authorized plan, according to reports. The parent firm of Google, Alphabet, has reduced spending after going on a big recruiting binge at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. As more individuals turned to remote work, education, and leisure, the demand for internet services rose, prompting this job boom.
