New Delhi: Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has appointed former Google executive Jai Mani to be in charge of products, Hugo Barra, Xiaomi's Vice President of International Operations, said in his Facebook and Google+ posts.
"Android fans: you'll remember Jai from his memorable on-stage demo performances at Google I/O and Nexus launches," Barra, himself an ex-Google employee, wrote. Mani has moved to Bangalore from San Francisco, he said.
"Jai has relocated all the way from SF to Bangalore and hit the ground running on his first day co-hosting a Mi fan meet-up with his partner in crime Rohit Ghalsasi," added Barra.
Mani had been a Google Play Strategy and Analytics associate before he co-founded a startup.
