Safe to say, no Google apps, ever?

Is it safe to say it now, I thought they will 'shake hands' soon but they've just released that Google bashing commercial how Gmail sends spam to it's own users and other childish things..

I don't understand the reasoning, they need Google users if they think of ever suceeding here. I rely heavily on Google Talk/Hangouts and i was convinced by the people that there are 3rd party apps that work, NO, they don't work. Tried all of them, jiTalk was the closest thing but even that stopped recieving any kind of notifications. Wasted money..

Should we accept that there will never be official Google apps/services, cause that is pretty redicolous.. I'm starting to find less and less point in WP8 other then it working pretty smooth..

This isn't the first anti-Google ad. The fact is that Google doesn't want their stuff on anything Microsoft, period. We could argue the exact reasons all day, but it is what it is. Will it always be like this? Nobody knows.

If someone needs all of Google's products, I tell them to get an Android phone. If they want all of Microsoft's products, I tell them to get a WP8 phone.

Windows Phone will only get Google apps once it gains enough market share, and nobody knows when that is. Hopefully soon :D

If you absolutely need Google apps, I would advise you to return/sell your phone and buy a phone that suits your needs because it sucks having a phone that doesn't completely satisfy your needs.

Edit: Ninja'd :p

I agree with this mentality. WP people keep saying Google is avoiding apps for WP because of politics, but I don't buy that. If that were the case then there wouldn't be iOS apps either. But reality is some of Google's best apps are on iOS. WP competition is nothing to Android at this point. The sales numbers in Q2 2013 were something like 180 million Android to 8 million WP. While politics may be involved, I'm sure if market share was high enough we'd see Google apps anyway.

Google makes nothing off of Android directly. They need user data. They can just as well get that from an iPhone or WP. It would almost make more sense for Microsoft to push Android. They make a billion or more per year from Android, and so far WP has been a big money pit.
