Google stopped the hiring sprint?

Google really hired many people during 2018. But I've heard the goal has nearly been achieved.
Is that true?
When would they expand again? (I heard the office in Kirkland,WA is almost finished)

I know Google have openings all the time, but many friends said the bar in this year is lower.
I don't do a lot of leetcode so a lower bar is my hope.

    I don't think Google ever lowers the bar.

    • Googler here. I have interviewed 34 people so far, recommended about 12, hires, zero.

      That kind of proves that the bar is not lowered, right?

    Thinking about Faang interviews give me PTSD.
