Google just announced to pulling the plug on its ‘Space app,’ which is small group sharing app. It was launched in May last year and now going to be read-only on March 3rd. Google reported that Spaces would be entirely offline available on April 17th. So, this is going to be first Google offline messaging app.
As we already know that Google launched Spaces on last May. Moreover a confusing early leak Google gets bothered with such an app. Google discussed Spaces at Google I/O developer conference last year, but Google also announced Allo messaging app. The idea of making Spaces was that it lets you create group chats on certain topics.
During the chat, you will be able to add contents via Google search, Google Chrome, and Youtube also. Meanwhile, Google gets it was own messaging app Allo last year. Spaces need to fix to troubleshoot during the conference period, but it seems it got its issues fixed and now available to install for everyone.
As John Kilcline said in his Google Plus post about Shutting Down the spaces as:
Last year, we announced Spaces to experiment with a new approach to small group sharing. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about how people come together to share ideas and content around any topic.
As we focus our efforts, we’ve decided to take what we learned with Spaces, and apply it to our existing products. Unfortunately, this means that we’ll be saying goodbye to supporting Spaces. We want to thank all of the Spaces users who tried out the app and shared their feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
In the coming weeks, Spaces will move into read-only mode, and on April 17, 2017 we’ll close down the app. You can learn more on the support page.
Thanks again for trying Spaces. We look forward to continuing to create great ways for you to share the content that matters most to you.
So finally, you will be unable to add anything to the app after March 3rd. Now try saving your conversations in Spaces at any time before the full shutdown on April 17th.
