Microsoft will launch Windows 8 on Friday, and Google has not wasted any time in making sure it has a presence on the operating system. The company has already released its Windows 8 App.

It’s wise of Google not to let Microsoft gain any more of an advantage for rival Bing with its new OS, especially considering other moves Microsoft has made which could have a significant impact on Bing usage.

The Google App is now available in the Windows Store (h/t: PCWorld).

Here’s what the app looks like:
