It is official – Google is the official livestream service provider for the upcoming Republican Convention, which the company confirmed according to a report in Politico. The company pushed through with its official sponsorship role despite pressure from anti-Trump groups who think that the tech company should not support the controversial GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Google said that it will be the company behind the livestream of the Republican Convention in July, happening in Cleveland. Aside from hosting the livestreaming of the event, the company will also offer videos from the convention, election trends and online tools and other services for those attending the convention and those watching it online. This is similar to the role they played during the 2012 Democratic and Republican conventions, and for the debates of both parties in this year's elections.
Google has remained neutral and has not declared support for any Republican or Democratic nominees. Their decision to official sponsor this year's Republican Convention however has been hounded by protests and opposition from activist groups. According to another report in Fortune, as the company announced their decision, protesters gathered outside their headquarters in Mountain View, California, armed with 500,000 signatures in an attempt to convince Google to withdraw from the convention. more >>
