Google Shuts Down Products


Google is  shutting a number of products which haven’t had the impact Google hoped for. This process started some days ago and now some products are being shut down. The products include:

  • Google Bookmarks Lists
  • Google Friend Connect
  • Google Gears
  • Google Search Timeline
  • Google Wave
  • Knol
  • Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal (RE<C)

Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President, Operations & Google Fellow says that : 

This is our third blog post in our off-season spring cleaning series. To recap, we’re in the process of shutting a number of products which haven’t had the impact we’d hoped for, integrating others as features into our broader product efforts, and ending several which have shown us a different path forward. Overall, our aim is to build a simpler, more intuitive, truly beautiful Google user experience.
