Congratulations to Hugo on his exciting new adventure. We'll miss him at Google but we're thrilled that he's sticking with Android. Best wishes Hugo!
 
 
A new Android chapter

After nearly 5½ years at Google and almost 3 years as a member of the Android team — the most amazing group of people I've ever worked with in my life — I have decided to start a new career chapter.

In a few weeks, I'll be joining the Xiaomi team in China to help them expand their incredible product portfolio and business globally — as Vice President, Xiaomi Global.  I'm really looking forward to this new challenge, and am particularly excited about the opportunity to continue to help drive the Android ecosystem.

It has been an amazing ride and true honor to be part of the Android team at Google, and I especially want to thank +Andy Rubin , +Hiroshi Lockheimer , +Sundar Pichai and +Vic Gundotra for their phenomenal support and mentorship over the years.

+Android team, I will truly miss you all!

I bet Hugo will leave Xiaomi in one year , He don't know what's the real culture there.
 
+Hugo Barra you will be missed I'm sure. All the best in your future endeavors.
 
Who will take his place, I wonder.  Big shoes to step into.

Best of luck +Hugo Barra Thank you for all that you brought to Android.
 
Makes me feel sad... Will miss him how he used to come up on stage in the Google's I/O...
I definitely m gonna miss him...

...at least he stays with Android, and not replace Balmer. or maybe Xiaomi is just a detour?, with a final destination to Nokia?

Hopefully he will continue to use G+ and post publicly
 
All the best +Hugo Barra in your new endeavour.

Will I/0 14 be the same without you though...

Most of Chinese gadget-lovers on G+ hate Xiaomi for certain reasons...
 
All the Best +Hugo.... We will miss you in "Google I/O"..
