Google Winds Down Google Labs

Google decided to wind down Google Labs in order to focus more in specific projects and prioritize its product effort.

"Last week we explained that we're prioritizing our product efforts. As part of that process, we've decided to wind down Google Labs," Bill Coughran, SVP for Research and Systems Infrastructure at Google posted at the company's blog.

"While we've learned a huge amount by launching very early prototypes in Labs, we believe that greater focus is crucial if we're to make the most of the extraordinary opportunities ahead," he added.

In many cases, this will mean ending Labs experiments - in others Google has incorporate Labs products and technologies into different product areas. And many of the Labs products that are Android apps today will continue to be available on Android Market.

"We'll continue to push speed and innovation - the driving forces behind Google Labs - across all our products, as the early launch of the Google+ field trial last month showed," Coughran said.

Google also clarified that it would not change in-product experimentation channels like Gmail Labs or Maps Labs. The company will continue to experiment with new features in each of its products.
