It will likely take some time before the native Calendar and Gmail apps will be released to the Windows 8 OS of the next model of the Microsoft Surface tablet, according to a report.

According to Clay Bavor, the product manager of Google Apps, the products of the team may not be available for some time. This was indicated in an interview with V3, a British technology publication.

However, Bavor revealed that the team has not ruled out creating these Windows application although they will think about where to invest and what it will make available to their users. But the Windows 8 and the Windows Phone OS are not yet being considered for the moment.

The stand of Google may change once usage of the Windows 8 OS increases, Bavor indicated. They will spend for it once these changes happen. However apps for Windows 8 were not discounted by the company.

According to a representative from Google, the goal of the company is to provide users a perfect app experience on all platforms and offer the products to a good number of consumers at the earliest possible time. The company will assess the platforms although no specific plans are available for the moment.

Among the Google Apps that may come to the Windows 8 of the upcoming model of the Microsoft Surface tablet are the Calendar, Gmail, Docs, Drive, Slides, and Sheets.

A native search app is already available for Windows 8 along with the Chrome for the Windows 8 , which is used on the next model of the Microsoft tablet after the Surface RT tablet.
