Dieter Bohn is leaving The Verge to work on Google's Platforms and Ecosystems team

Bohn, who served as executive editor of The Verge for over a decade, will take on a new role within Google’s platforms and ecosystems team. However, his exact responsibility remains unclear. He also revealed that he has “not been involved in editorial decisions for some time.” “I’m headed to Google to work on the Platforms & Ecosystems team,” he wrote. “I am excited to help shape the future of software platforms like Android and Chrome — and continue to work at the nexus of technology and culture, just in a different way.” The team is responsible for the search giant’s work on Chrome and Android, so it’s a safe bet that Bohn will have a key role in shaping what’s next for these platforms.

Dieter Bohn, The Verge’s executive editor, has announced his departure from the tech news site. Bohn will join Google’s Android and Chrome development teams. Previously, he co-founded Android Central and iMore before co-founding The Verge in 2011. Dieter Bohn of The Verge is embarking on a new chapter in his career. Bohn announced his departure from the tech media outlet he co-founded in 2011 in a lengthy editorial published on Friday.

Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s senior vice president overseeing Android, Chrome, and Chrome OS, welcomed Bohn in response to his tweet announcing the move. Bohn was one of the founders of The Verge, which came into being more than a decade ago. Prior to that, he spent five years as editor-in-chief of Smartphone Experts, according to his LinkedIn profile. He also founded several influential tech news sites, including Android Central and iMore. Overall, he spent over 20 years in the tech media, covering the best Android phones and the smartphone industry as a whole. Bohn earned his bachelor’s degrees in English and philosophy from the University of St. Thomas. He was also a Ph.D. candidate in English at the University of Minnesota.

Jay Bonggolto always keeps a nose for news. He is a tech journalist based in the Philippines who has been writing about consumer tech for the past six years and has been using various Android phones since falling in love with Jelly Bean. When he’s not writing, he likes to spend time outside, stealing scenes with his phone camera.
