While it remains unclear as to where he is headed for, after an eight year long stint as Google chief, his resignation is sure to leave the future of Google+ in uncertainty.
According to CNET, his departure follows a rumor posted two days ago on the app Secret that, " Vic Gundotra is interviewing."
An unnamed source revealed that Gundotra had problems with Google's management team.
Google confirmed that Google+ Vice President of Engineering David Besbris will now be in charge of the social network.
Meanwhile, praising Gundotra in his own Google+post, CEO Larry Page thanked him for a tremendous almost eight years at Google and for building Google+ from nothing, the report added.
