Google`s Android boss Andy Rubin replaced by Chrome manager Sundar Pichai
London: Head of Google`s Android division Andy Rubin has been replaced by Sundar Pichai, who manages Google Chrome and Apps.
The firm`s chief executive, Larry Page, wrote in a blogpost that Rubin "has decided to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google."
His replacement, Pichai, runs Google Chrome and Apps, so this move brings the company`s mobile and desktop operating systems under the control of the same person, the Telegraph reports.

Since then he has been Google`s senior vice president of mobile and digital content.
According to the paper, Page did not say what Rubin`s new role would be, but he said the Android creator had `exceeded even the crazy ambitious goals we dreamed of for
Page also said that Pichai would "do a tremendous job doubling down on Android ".
