Google to Retire iGoogle, Google Video And Other Services


Since April 2011, Google has more aggressively closed services to focus on its strengths. Now five more products, including Google Video and iGoogle, will be retired.

Google Mini has been an important part of the company's Enterprise Search offering since it was first introduced in 2005. However, beginning July 31 Google is discontinuing the product because its functionality could be better provided by products like Google Search Appliance, Google Site Search and Google Commerce Search.

Google Talk Chatback allowed websites to embed a Google Talk widget so that they could engage with their visitors. It's now outdated, so Google is turning off Chatback and encouraging websites to use the Meebo bar.

Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009. Later this summer Google will be moving the remaining hosted content to YouTube. Google Video users have until August 20 to migrate, delete or download their content. Google will then move all remaining Google Video content to YouTube as private videos that users can access in the YouTube video manager.

On November 1, 2013, iGoogle will be also retired. Google originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today's web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information. With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for iGoogle has eroded over time, so Google will be winding it down. Users will have 16 months to adjust or export their data.

Google will also soon be retiring its Symbian Search App to focus its efforts on its mobile web search experience.

The services join a growing pile of relatively obscure products that Google has purged. A list from September of services to be retired included Aardvark, Fast Flip and Google Pack. The company said it has shut down more than 30 products since last fall.
