- Google Chat is currently working well and has received positive feedback from users.
Google+ was first introduced by Google in 2011 to fight against giants in social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. However, this social media platform by Google didn’t work, and they had to discontinue it in 2019. although most of its features were transferred to Google Currents.
At this point, it was a curse for Google; just like Google+, Google Currents also failed miserably, which lead Google to announce its discontinuation as well. According to the latest news from Google, they will be ending the service on July 5th. Thankfully this time is enough for businesses to shift from Currents to other services.
Google, at this point, is now focusing on its Google Chat. Unlike Google+ and Google Currents, Google Chat is working great and is well received by users. Google also hinted that some of the features from Google Current might also shift to Google Chat.
This can be seen in the Gifs provided by Google on their Google Support page. This confirms that you will be able to perform the tasks in Google Chat that were only available in Google Currents.
