This is the graveyard for all 'dead' Google products
Being one of the biggest tech giants in the world, Google keeps on experimenting with different products and services. Some of the offerings click with the audience, while others fail to make a mark and end up being killed by the search giant. Now, you can visit all these 'dead' products in a digital graveyard called 'Killed by Google'. Here's all about it.
All discontinued products at one place
As the name suggests, 'Killed by Google' is a place where you can find all products ever discontinued by Google. It shows Allo, the messaging app killed 15 days ago, and a range of products and services developed and killed during the last 21 years of Google's existence. The open-source website has been created by front-end developer Cody Ogden.
147 products killed till date
In all, the 'Killed by Google' page lists a whopping 147 discontinued items, including 12 hardware products, 11 apps, 124 services. This includes some popular stuff, including the Nexus line of phones, Chromebook Pixel, the Project Ara modular phone, Google Glasses, and social networking service Orkut. Every item of the list details how old the product was and when it was killed by Google.
Every item redirects the viewer to Wikipedia
If you click on the name of any product on the 'Killed by Google' website, you will be redirected to the official Wikipedia page of the service/product in question, something that would let you take a walk down the memory lane.
Two more additions on the way
The nostalgic list of dead Google products will soon get more members, Google+ and Inbox email service. Both services were focused on the consumer segment, but only the latter managed to rake positive reviews from the audience before retirement. Google+ never took off as a social media service; it was even marred by multiple bugs before ultimately being axed by the company.
