What really gets me here is Inbox. I'm gonna miss Inbox :(. Have tried other alternatives, Superhuman, Consider, to name a few. Not the same as my Inbox.
I do hate their tendency to release a "cutting edge" solution a la Wave, then cannibalize features for other products, eventually killing the experiment. Not good to be an early adopter in the Google ecosystem. Then again a friend of mine swore by Google Hangouts which has been around a good while, but they're killing it, too.
Same. Sorely missing Reminders--it changed my life any now it's gone and I don't know what to do.
same, switched to native mac mail client for now.
A lot of these standalone products have been integrated as features into Google's core product offerings.
Nexus being a good example. They just evolved the branding.
eh. a lot of these aren't killed so much as rebranded or evolved. Google Talk became Hangouts. Google Allo rebranded as Google Chat. Nexus Q led to Chromecast. Google Video rolled into YouTube. Sparrow team built Inbox then... actually died.
Agreed. It seems the creators were going for clickbait. I found a bunch more that are still alive, just with different names. Tez, for example, is exactly the same app it was, just renamed to Google Pay for consistency with versions in other countries.
I can't believe how many of these things I thought still existed.
There were a lot more products in that graveyard than I expected
Like what nothing guarantees the success of Stadia •_•
hahaha, guarantee it will be there in a couple of years
Just like Music, Books, Movies. & Television now Applications, the gaming industry will come to decentralized cloud based services through Google, Microsoft or any other company...
I am not a fan of the idea but it will come...
