Is Google Preparing To Enter The Home Services Market?

Following Homejoy’s announcement that it is shutting down its service on Friday, Google confirmed that it is hiring around 20 members of Homejoy’s product and engineering team, signaling that it may be preparing to enter the local home service market. Earlier this year, Amazon officially launched “Amazon Home Services” to connect Amazon customers with home service professionals in local areas. As the local on-demand space continues to heat up, it makes sense to Google to enter the race.
