It took more than 12 hours for Google to address the issue, but Pichai has now — albeit with far fewer words than Apple CEO Tim Cook, who published a letter on the Apple website.

Pichai’s comment doesn’t suggest any big action on the part of Google, which, of course, maintains the Android operating system that competes with Apple’s iOS. But it does suggest that Google is more closely aligned with Apple than with the FBI in this case.
