Along the way to the world domination, Google is now getting rid of some of their useless garbage services hoping to enter the year 2013 with nothing but pure awesome, quality services. So, as a part of the “Spring Cleaning” processes Google is now retiring several of their popular services, rounding up all their features to 60.
Starting this month, some of Google services will begin to disappear, including those small ads that made you no money inside RSS feeds, AdSense for Feeds. The Classic Plus feature that allowed you to customize Google homepage and there will also be a cut down on the Google storage, giving you only 5GB for both Picasa and Drive services. In addition to those kills, Spreadsheet Gadgets, Google News Badges, Recommended Sections, Insights for Search, +1 Reports in Webmaster Tools and the Places Directory Android app will also be wiped out from the face of the Internet by the end of November 2012.
“We want people to have a beautifully simple experience when using Google. These changes will enable us to focus better so that we can do more to help improve the products that millions of people use multiple times a day.” Senior Engineering Director of Google, Yossi Matias stated on the blog post.
Well, they’ve got a point you know. Most of these features are practically useless. Heck I didn’t even know some these services until today. I think it’s good that they’re getting rid of these features. Because I know they will bring out more cool features very soon.
