Google has decided to cancel the further release of Pixelbook laptops and even dissolved the team that was engaged in their design, reports The Verge. A new model in this line was supposed to debut next year, but the project was cut short as part of Google’s new austerity policy.

A few months ago, Google planned to continue work on the Pixelbook. Ahead of the annual I/O developer conference, Google hardware chief Rick Osterloh told The Verge that “we’re going to do a Pixelbook in the future.” But he also acknowledged that the Chromebook market has changed since 2017 when the first model of the line was released.

Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO, has said for months that he intends to slow hiring and cut some projects across the company. “In some cases, that means consolidating where investments overlap and streamlining processes,” he wrote in a July letter to Google staff. “n other cases, that means pausing development and re-deploying resources to higher priority areas.” The project team and the Pixelbook itself fell victim to this consolidation and redistribution.

“Google doesn’t share future product plans or personnel information; however, we are committed to building and supporting a portfolio of Google products that are innovative and helpful for our users,” Laura Brin, Google’s communications manager, told The Verge. “In regards to our people, in times where we do shift priorities we work to transition team members across devices and services.”

Google has spent nearly a decade, starting with the first Chromebook Pixel in 2013, trying to prove to the world that a high-end Chromebook with a price tag above $1,000 is a good idea. As such, the Pixel and the later Pixelbook models were high-priced niche devices that didn’t have much of an impact on the laptop market. However, it is worth noting that the number of higher-quality and more expensive Chromebook models has been constantly increasing, so it can be considered that the Pixelbook team has fulfilled its mission, proving that buyers can be interested not only in the cheapest models from Chrome OS.
