They still remain involved with the company, as they write in their blog post: "We are very committed to Google and Alphabet and continue to be actively involved as board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue to talk to Sundar on a regular basis. , especially on topics that we are passionate about. "

Sundar Pichai takes over from them. He has been the director of Google since 2015.
