As per the reports of Wired, Alphabet's 'Everyday Robots' project is the unit under Google's experimental X laboratories that has witnessed the shutdown by Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google.

The company has trained around 100 one-armed and has wheeled the robots to help clean the company's cafeterias. A number of these robot prototypes has been reportedly transported out of the lab, and were designated useful duties throughout Google's Bay Area facilities.

The robots which got fired by Google were used to clean the tables and also use to separate the trash and recycle accordingly. These robots helped in keeping the conference rooms clean too, starting from the pandemic era when people were lowkey and were not socialising.
