And that’s unequivocally it for Google+

Last year, Google launched a beta of Currents, that was radically a rebrand of Google+ for G Suite users, given Google+ for consumers went to accommodate a builder in Apr 2019. While Google+ was meant to be an all-purpose amicable network, a thought behind Currents is some-more same to what Microsoft is doing with Yammer or Facebook with Workplace. It’s meant to give employees a forum for inner discussions and announcements.

To mystify matters, Google kept Google+ around, even after a launch of Currents, though in an email to G Suite admins, it has now announced that Google+ for G Suite will tighten a doors on Jul 6, after that there will be no approach to opt out of Currents or return behind to Google+.

And with that, Google has driven a final spike into Google+’s coffin. The Google+ mobile apps will be automatically updated to Currents. All existent links to Google+ will route to Currents.

Going forward, Google+ will usually live on as a misty memory, filled with circles of friends, all of that were forced to use their genuine name (at slightest during a beginning), +1 buttons everywhere, sparks and a guarantee of fun games, ripples and more.

Currents is all business — and while I’m not wakeful of a lot of companies that use it, it looks to be a plain choice for companies that would differently use a Yammer/Teams multiple in a Microsoft ecosystem. Now, we guess, we can start a countdown before Google launches another amicable network.
