Google has been holding a number of AMP office hours hangouts to help publishers better understand how to implement Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) on their sites and deal with the various issues and scenarios that come along with that.

Google began sending search traffic to AMP pages last month, and will likely only increasingly point users to these pages when applicable as time goes on. AMP isn't a direct ranking signal yet, but it could be in the future. Google is already exclusively showing AMP content in news carousel results on mobile.

Over the next couple of weeks, Google will roll out a new series of office hours in the following languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, and Indonesian.

The hangouts will feature product managers, technical managers, and engineers from Google, who will speak in these languages and answer questions accordingly.

There's a schedule of the planned office hours here.

As reported earlier, Google has been working with Lullabot to create a Drupal 8 module that supports AMP, and the beta version is now available. They're also working on one for Drupal 7.
