Google has yet again postponed a full return to the office, announcing that its employees can continue to work remotely until next year.

The decision follows similar ones made last month by Facebook and Amazon.

Google workers around the world will not be required to return to their offices until at least January 10, 2022, CEO Sundar Pichai said in a note to employees on Tuesday.

Other big companies, including Apple, Microsoft, and Uber are currently sticking to their plans to reopen offices in October.

Do you think any of the temporary changes to your job because of COVID could become permanent (or already have become permanent)?
