China already has well-developed Google alternatives, most notably Baidu, a company that has thrived without having to worry about the Silicon Valley giant as a competitor.
The prospect of Google returning to China is in line with the trend of several United States tech giants willing to tailor their products and services in order to gain access to the massive Chinese market.
China has been the biggest hole in Google's global footprint since it withdrew in 2010.
A Google spokeswoman said on Wednesday that the company "does not comment on speculation about future plans".
But that wasn't always the case.
As a result of Google's absence, Baidu is the dominant search engine in China, and approved by its government.
Any search terms or site that goes against the views of Chinese officials is subject to being removed from search results. That gave Chinese internet users an idea of what they were not allowed to see.
Google has declined to comment on the subject, but the reports have pummeled shares of USA -listed Baidu, which dominates China's search engine market.
Wang told HKFP: "Google has also not explained how it plans to protect users from surveillance given China's Cybersecurity Law passed in 2016, which requires companies to restrict online anonymity..."
Google's foray into the Chinese market once more, this time complying with their Orwellian demands, sets a bad example for other internet companies.
Google's re-entry into China will see it compete with Baidu, which now has nearly 70 per cent of the domestic search market, according to data by StatCounter Global Stats. "It will set a bad precedent for many other companies who are still trying to do business in China while maintaining the principles of not succumbing to China's censorship".
Beijing denied that it had been involved in the attacks, but the incident sparked a political fight with Washington.
Human rights group Amnesty International said it was calling on Google to change course.
The most recent report about its pending strategy suggests Google engineers built a custom Android app, the two versions named "Maotai" and "Longfei". "Google claims to value freedom and one hopes Google will put its corporate principles and America first, ahead of Chinese cash", Cotton said in a statement.
Despite its main search engine and YouTube video platform being blocked, Google still has more than 700 employees and three offices in China, and has been developing alternative projects.
Businesses that depended on Google applications such as Google Docs and Gmail also suffered.
From a business perspective, getting back into China is the right thing for Google. By 2014, Google's piece of the pie had shriveled to just over 4%.
China's search sector is now dominated by Baidu, which heavily censors its searches. The Chinese government is yet to give final approval, The Intercept said.
A source inside the company, who was not authorized to speak on the record, confirmed that the contents of the Intercept report were accurate. "They are intrusive", he added. And some Google (googl) employees are reportedly not wild about this new push.
