Another long-time member of the Android team at Google is moving on. After six years of effort, having first worked on Android since before it was even publically announced, Romain Guy has decided to try something new. But unlike the last Android developer to depart, Jean-Baptiste Queru, Guy isn't leaving the company as a whole. He has chosen to remain at Google and will apply his talents in other ways. He had only good things to say in the Google+ post he put up earlier today.


During his time as a software engineer on the Android team, Guy has watched our favorite mobile platform mature from a little open source curiosity into the world's most widespread mobile operating system. And to think it all happened over the course of six years. They grow up so fast.

Guy is known for more than his work on Android - the man also knows how to wield a camera, and he posts some of his phenomenal work to both Flickr and 500px. If another company were to try to lure him away, I wouldn't be surprised if it were Microsoft. Someone has to take pictures for the ever-changing Bing homepage, after all, and Guy is more than capable.


All joking aside, we wish Guy the best of luck in his future endeavors, and we're thankful for all he's done. We're confident he will continue to do good work in whichever Google department he goes to next.
